Expanding the Senior Advisors team with the Co-Founder of Disqus, Daniel Ha

by Nuno G. Pedro


We welcome Daniel Ha to the Grishin Robotics family, as a Senior Advisor, helping us track new trends in the Internet and consumer space, and identifying promising investment opportunities. Daniel co-founded and was CEO of Disqus, a widely used Internet service powering millions of online discussions and reaching over a billion people every month.

As a self-professed product guy, he drove product, marketing, and business strategy at Disqus for a decade.

Disqus was one of the first companies backed by Y Combinator and then subsequently by Union Square Ventures, North Bridge Venture Partners, Iris Capital, as many well as many great angel investors. The company was acquired by Zeta Global in 2017.

Daniel is currently an active startup advisor, angel investor, and product tinkerer. He often writes and speaks about startups, consumer products, digital media, and online publishing. Outside of the Internet, Daniel tries to spend time on the race track learning how to drive less-slow.

The Senior Advisor program brings on visionary founders and thought leaders into the Grishin Robotics family. We are excited to add Daniel to the team to help steer our future investment strategy in the Internet and Consumer spaces.
