Growth-driven designer & strategic marketing consultant helps people grow purpose-driven businesses

I’m Daniel D’Alonzo. I help people grow purpose-driven businesses.

When I’m not busy getting run over by a truck (yes, literally), I mentor Rutgers Business students, I sit on the advisory board of Enactus at Rutgers, I take turns publishing a weekly newsletter on social entrepreneurship for Techstars, I am the founder of a social innovation conference and a professional development institute, and I run Meetups in the local community. Here’s my personal Gmail, and a few links to connect on social media.
