Jason Wilk is a serial entrepreneur having founded companies such as Allscreen.TV, a technology platform that was ranked at number twenty-nine on INC 5000’s list of fastest growing companies in 2015. Zealot Networks acquired Allscreen in 2015 and Jason soon started work on his next project, Dave. Dave is the fintech startup that has created an app to help you outsmart overdrafts. By connecting your bank account, Dave will tell you how low your bank balance is likely to go within the next seven days. Backed by investors such as Mark Cuban, the new company is gaining a lot of traction. Recently, Jason managed to acquire the Dave.com domain name. In this interview, we speak to Jason about Dave.com, why he bought the name and why he decided to call his startup Dave initially. Can you tell us a little about yourself and the company behind Dave.com? Where did the brand name of “Dave” come from? Were there any other brand names under consideration, or did you immediately go for Dave? How did you first go about finding out that Dave.com was available to buy? Was it a case of contacting the owner, or was the domain offered to you? What was the purchase price of Dave.com? Did you use any tools (e.g., automated appraisals), services (e.g., manual appraisals, domain brokers), or data (e.g., sales data, search volumes, search results) to determine your best offer and/or the value of the domain? Would you have considered paying more for the domain than you did? Do you think that Dave would have gained as much traction as it has without the Dave.com domain name? What would your personal advice be for startups who are thinking of using a percentage of their funding to secure a premium .COM domain? — Thanks to Jason for taking part in our Inside Interview series!
