Welcome! I’m David Mytton, previously co-founder and CEO of SaaS cloud monitoring startup, Server Density.
I started Server Density in 2009 and it was acquired by StackPath in 2018. As part of the acquisition, I joined an organisation of 300+ people to lead Product Engineering across a suite of security products generating $200m in revenue. I left StackPath in Dec 2019.
I am an Expert in Residence at Seedcamp (unpaid), a London-based VC fund worth over $3bn (who also funded Server Density). I actively angel invest, usually alongside Seedcamp.
I concluded an Environmental Technology MSc at Imperial College London in Sept 2020, with a particular interest in green IT and the energy consumption of computing.
