JONATHAN HUFNAGEL
CEO & Founder

Email   |   LinkedIn

Jonathan started his career in sports with FC Dallas, Major League Soccer.  It was working at FC Dallas that Jonathan recognized the opportunity to launch DASH, Digital Auction Showdown.

Jonathan noted the struggles, and opportunities, the Team’s Foundation Director was having with her team memorabilia auctions.  The auctions were rudimentary pen and paper auctions with little fan engagement and money raised.

With the prevalence of smart phones in every fans’ hand, Jonathan recognized the potential in digitizing the team auctions.

Through the auctions, fans could connect with their favorite teams in an emotional and engaging way, and at the same time get their hands on the most authentic memorabilia and team experiences.   For the teams, they could connect with their fans and drive revenues for other business units of the club as well, such as merchandise, concessions, sponsorships, and ticket sales.

This is Jonathan’s second successful start-up business.
