David J Bland

Founder & CEO

David founded Precoil in 2015 to focus on helping both startup founders and enterprise leaders rapidly find product market fit. He's pioneering a new breed of facilitative consulting by blending together Design Thinking, Lean Startup and Agile to make  products that matter.

Previously David was a Principal at Neo in San Francisco and before that at BigVisible. He joined his first startup in 1999 and found success once they pivoted from B2C to B2B.

David believes that people are not resources and when given a chance, can accomplish great things.
