Prior to Kids II, David led Coca-Cola’s seed-stage venturing platform called Coca-Cola Founders, designed to co-create new, high-growth startups by connecting repeat founders with some of Coca-Cola’s biggest challenges. David joined Coca-Cola as its first head of design where he established a cross-functional, systems-based approach to design across more than 200 countries.
