Danny Mizrahi is the Founder and CEO of Contango IT. He started his professional career at age 14, as a runner on the NY Mercantile Exchange where he learned the word Contango.  Each summer thereafter, Danny spent working at technology companies, learning from the best and expanding his technical and business foundation.  After 4 years at the University of Maryland and founding/running two successful startups, Danny came back to New York to be the Director of Sales and Marketing for an established IT Consulting Company.  Soon after, he realized that there were better ways to help businesses than simply providing traditional IT support, Managed Services and Break/Fix solutions. Contango IT was created to leverage Cloud technologies to help businesses lower costs, while increasing productivity, reliability and availability of their data.  While Contango is still considered a pioneer in Cloud Computing, and provides networking/helpdesk support to their clients, they are also experts in Infrastructure (Cabling) and Custom Programming / Application Development.  In this episode, Danny Mizrahi talks about taking risks in order to see dramatic growth.

A quotable CEO Mojo Moment:

“I was very scared to take risks as a younger … entrepreneur. When I started taking a couple risks, things like hiring an assistant, getting a bigger office, outsourcing bookkeeping, that was when … we really started to grow dramatically.  ”
