Daniel Burstein is Managing Partner of Millennium Technology Ventures Advisors. Prior to founding Millennium, Dan had been Chief Investment Officer for PS Capital Holdings and PS Capital Ventures, the predecessor funds of Millennium. From 1997 to 1999, Dan was responsible for making all the portfolio investment decisions for those funds. By July 2000, the PS Capital portfolios included investments in 15 companies that had returned to their investors approximately $250 million in publicly-traded company capital gains, representing returns on total capital invested in the funds of over 20x (PS Capital Holdings) and 7x (PS Capital Ventures).

For twelve years from 1988 to 2000, Dan was Senior Advisor at The Blackstone Group, one of Wall Street's leading private merchant banks. Over the course of his career he has served as a consultant to the CEOs and senior executives of major global corporations including Sony, Toyota, Microsoft, and Sun Microsystems.

In January 2000, Dan helped found the Millennium Technology Ventures fund. The fund invested at a conservative pace in the 2000-2001 environment and currently has over $50 million in capital still available for new investments. The fund has one successful public market realization to date, through the sale of portfolio company Phobos (on whose Board of Directors Dan served) to publicly-traded SonicWALL.

Dan is the author of five books on new technology trends and global economic issues, including Road Warriors, a 1995 book about the birth of digital media and the Internet. He has also written books about the future of China, Japan, and the European Union. His 1988 book on Japanese finance (YEN!) was an international sensation, landing on best-seller lists in the U.S., Japan, Australia and 15 other countries where it was translated into foreign language editions. Dan has been a forum fellow at the World Economic Forum in Davos and has been honored many times for his books and journalistic work, including awards from the Overseas Press Club and Sigma Delta Chi. He is a frequent guest expert on television programs ranging from CNBC, CNN, Fox, and Bloomberg to Charlie Rose and Oprah.
