Arnold Daniels (software architect and developer) is a familiar face in the Dutch start-up scene, as an early employee of a number of successful Dutch startup. As employee #1 of one of the most successful Dutch software companies ProActive (6 times FD Gazelle award winner, #24 Main Capital Partners list), Arnold helped to redefine corporate expenditure software.

Cloud9 has recently been acquired by Amazon Web Services. In 2014 Arnold Daniels co-founded LegalThings, aimed to reinvent contracts and revolutionize legal processes.
