Some people are content going with the flow in life and letting it unfold in front of their feet. Others have a different vision and want to seize it with both hands. One such person is businessman David A. Steinberg. Steinberg is someone who has taken the world of business by storm and made it his own in every way. His work has been greatly lauded in the process. He began by founding Sterling Cellular. This was a cellular retailer that enjoyed a great deal of success under his supervision. After that, it was on to a brand new and equally successful venture. Steinberg was instrumental in founding InPhonic. The company rapidly enjoyed a great deal of success as it climbed to top the Inc 500 list by 2004. That was the same year that he brought it to the public and created a deal that is still remembered today as one of the greatest deals of that year. Since that time, he’s been involved in many varied other business ventures. His work includes the founding of CAIVIS Acquisition Corporation and that of Zeta Interactive. His many honors include being named the Greater Washington Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in the field of communications and serving on numerous charitable boards.
David Steinberg Speaks Passionately About His Work
In a recent interview, Steinberg talks about his life, values and how he’s made it all work. One of the events that shaped his life was the fact that he left with a degree during the last great recession. He found a few opportunities to get hired. He followed several paths in the immediate aftermath including working for Senator Ted Kennedy. It was at his office that he began to learn about the world of the growing telecoms. He began to see how it might shape the landscape and offer incredible possibilities for those willing to seize the moment. At that point, he chose to seek advice from close family members. It was a decision that would end up changing his life. After selling cellular phones, he realized he had a knack for it. This would lead him to start his own company and become an entrepreneur. It was then that he started a business selling phones. The business started in the basement of his townhouse. It was a small venture at first that started to take off incredibly quickly. Steinberg had twenty employees working in this crowded space within a short period. At that point, he realized he needed to find an office of his own. Within the first year, David knew he was on to something good. Steinberg and his team grossed over a million dollars in sales in just a single year. They were at ten million in sales by the end of the second year. It was an incredible success and made him aware of his power and how he could use it to create a business. He decided to sell it for a major profit and look for other possible ventures.
What’s Next For David Steinberg
Not content to sit on his laurels, he knew he wanted to find a new place and new ideas to embrace. That’s when InPhonic began to take shape. With David Steinberg’s help, the business saw rapid, tremendous expansion and a great deal of success. It allowed him to think about the direction he wanted to take that would prove to be the world of the public offering where he earned even greater success. They raised a lot of capital and used to create an event and value for their shareholders. It was then that he decided to create what became Zeta Global.
The Rise of Zeta Global
Zeta Global is perhaps the company that remains closest to his heart. Zeta has been about putting what he’s learned in all of his work and using it well. This is a company that takes the world of data and analytics and makes it all work for their clients. It’s a process he finds deeply satisfying and one that allows him to continue to live out his dreams of being part of yet another successful venture. David Steinberg hopes to continue to see it grow and expand as it goes forward.
