“I went to business school with David Burns and have known him for more than 10 years. My partner and I have relied on his astute financial advice several times over the years as our company has inevitably faced crucial financing decisions due to rapid but volatile growth. For instance, a couple of years ago we hired David to obtain a $250,000 financing facility for us when we won a large new contract that required greater financial resources than we had on hand. Despite several extenuating circumstances, including our bank’s seizure by the FDIC, David was able to secure the necessary funding. I highly recommend David and his firm Ampure Capital to help with any financial issues you have.”

-R Blank, CTO of Almer/Blank


“We were small company with limited resources on the financial side of things and David came recommended from our investors. He came in and did financial modeling and sales projections over a three year span. He was very attentive to our needs, stayed within our budgets, but more important, provided solid insight into the many ways we could analyze our business potential from various points of view which helped us shape our course of action going forward.”

-Gerry Philpott, CEO E-Poll


“David helped create my business plan and has consulted with me getting my company off the ground. He is a talented and intelligent business advisor and I still use him regularly as I am growing out my business. I highly recommend Davids work.”

-Faber Dewar, CEO Drink Up!


“David is one of the most competent and thorough financial consultants I know. With backgrounds in engineering and math, as well as mergers and acquisitions at Citigroup, he is a master at putting together business plans and complex financials models. He also knows how to quickly diagnose problems, recommend solutions, and execute them alongside your team. We employed David’s services at two digital advertising/media agencies that I worked for, and it was money well spent. In each case, he helped us to straighten out our P&L, fix Quickbooks issues, and prepare first-class plans for potential Angel & VC investors in a matter of weeks. He has the rare talent of being able to dive deep into financials, and then pull back to see the big picture and craft meaningful strategic plans. I would highly recommend David to any entrepreneur looking to take their business to the next level. He has the utmost integrity, attention to detail, and is truly a trusted business partner.”

-Michael Aaron, VP Operations Attention USA


“David is detail oriented and brings alot to the table, from building business plans to finding funding sources. He personally helped negotiate a settlement with a company that saved my company tens of thousands of dollars. I consider David a real asset and will continue to do business with him and his firm.”

-Cary Taylor, CEO Versatile Energy Power Systems


“I hired David to write a business plan and financial model for a renewable energy biotech company. He was quite capable and I was very satisfied with his work. Highly recommended”

-Michael Nadel, CEO Danson Seed


“Dave is a fantastic financial consultant. He is an expert at developing pro formas and evaluating financial statements. He drills down efficiently and thoroughly into core business strategy using numbers to justify a particular direction. We have worked as partners on multiple business plan engagements for start-up clients as well as operating businesses. I would work with him again in a heartbeat and consider anyone with Dave on their team in good hands.”

-Neelu Jain, Consultant

As a Project Manager for Growthink, David’s intellect, analytical style, attention to detail and passion for entrepreneurship helps the firm achieve a consistently high level of client satisfaction. He is a natural problem solver and can handle complex business models and unique client situations. He’s our go to guy for alternative/green energy/tech assignments.”

I count on David to bring tremendous integrity and valuable insights to any business relationship.”
