Dusty Dean

CEO and Founder of BITCADET, Managing Partner at Seedzi

Dusty Dean is an entrepreneur, experienced executive and technologist. Before the age of 35, he has started a successful software development company, served as president of a multi-million dollar steel construction company and recently launched a start-up incubator.

But, he’s just getting started.

Dusty discovered technology could be an escape at a young age. Always curious, he’d have his nose in a book or break open clocks, radios and other electronics to understand how they worked. Then at the age of five, Dusty’s life changed when he received his first computer – an IBM 5170 AT. Soon after, he taught himself programming. By the age of 13, he was building and selling desktop computers and software. In his teens, Dusty would run IRC servers through his high school’s network and set up pranks through LAN. After college, Dusty started his software development and design firm, BITCADET. Before long he landed his first client – a do-it-yourself steel structure company called VersaTube. Over three years, BITCADET helped VersaTube create a new online sales channel through lead generation, improve their user experience and build a successful e-commerce platform. At the same time, BITCADET grew to a thirty-person company and added clients. Success was at an all-time high, then Dusty accepted an offer he couldn’t refuse. He took on the role of president of VersaTube. Dusty’svision for VersaTube was to build a company that enabled anyone to design, build and purchase the structure of their dreams. To achieve this, he streamlined operations and developed an innovative and fully customizable e-commerce platform – which was so successful that customers broke with normal online shopping habits and spent 75 times more than the average Amazon online order of the time. A month after the platform was released, VersaTube broke their all-time monthly revenue number. Recently, Dusty left VersaTube to return to his role of CEO of BITCADET and launch his new start-up incubator, Seedzi. Moving forward, he is looking forward to working with fellow entrepreneurs and business leaders to explore how the latest technologies like AR, VR and machine learning can transform traditional industries.
