In 2012, Hassan Dantata found himself alone in a hospital room. He’d just had a bone marrow transplant that required isolation for two months with a 50/50 chance of survival. With nothing but his “imagination and a dream” along with a burning desire for a smartphone, his resourcefulness led him to become an eBay vendor.

Eventually, he graduated from being an e-commerce vendor to starting a full-service digital solutions agency for the optical industry, Raven & Macaw, Ltd. His youth advocacy work has earned him coverage in GQ and British Vogue magazines and the World Economic Forum.

In this episode, Hassan describes how he came to carve a niche and the specific actions he’s taking to build a SaaS company rooted in operational excellence. You’ll also discover how he’s navigating the challenges of recruiting top tech talent. If you’re looking for inspiration to start or grow your business following a personal setback, then Hassan’s story of resilience, tenacity, and consistency may be just what the doctor ordered!
