About David Burn


  1. An interesting approach to a market that, I suspect, is fairly skeptical when it comes to business “institutions” like banks. The ecological point of distinction is important, but I’d think being “first” into this space is even more important to the target market.
    I’ve added this post to the “Much Ado About Marketing” roll for Monday (12/05).
    Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
