Co-founders Daniel and Prosper have been close friends for over 15 years. They couldn’t have had more distinct backgrounds: Daniel is the son of a rabbi from Santa Monica and Prosper is the son of a bank worker from Nigeria.
When they met at Williams College, they knew they’d do something special together. Not only did they both have an intense entrepreneurial drive, they both had a similar vision for how they wanted to make a difference in the world.
Daniel and Prosper’s stories and perspectives are different, but they both noticed that people seldom realize their full potential. In Prosper’s words, “most people don’t know how to bring out their inner Michael Jordan or Thomas Edison. But it’s there. It just needs to be drawn out!”
Daniel and Prosper have been obsessed with helping people, teams, and organizations in opening to their potential; they’ve been obsessed with providing people and team the tools necessary to go bigger… and better.
Avanoo is a reflection of that obsession.
“Ava” in Finnish means “open”, and “Noo” in Old English means now. Avanoo at its heart and core is literally about supporting people, teams, and organizations in opening to your potential right now!
