As Palm Beach Tech continues to thrive, especially with the addition of the Palm Beach Tech Space & #MadeInPBC program, we need to grow our team as well. Today, we’re proud to announce the addition of Brian Dapelo & Dana Fletcher to our ranks.


dapeloBrian Dapelo is Palm Beach Tech’s new Community Manager, overseeing the Palm Beach Tech Space and MadeInPBC Program.
Brian brings a substantial amount of operational, strategy, and business development experience to the organization. He began his career in the Financial sector in roles including Financial Advisory, Trading, and Portfolio Management before starting his own investment advisory firm.
He later began a career in Management Consulting at Pricewaterhouse Coopers in New York City, where he specialized in solving the most complex strategy and operations issues for major multinational corporations. Inevitably Brian began to feel called back to entrepreneurship and decided to become an Independent Management Consultant to help small to medium sized businesses take their ideas to market, streamline operations, and reach growth goals.
Brian received his Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California and his International MBA from Instituto de Empresa (IE) Business School in Madrid, Spain.
