Austin Startup Coach – Darrell Malone, Jr.


The Austin Startup Coach

Darrell Malone is a recent addition to the Austin Startup scene that is already making big waves. He moved to Austin in 2011 with no connections, no capital and no income. After getting a job at a local retail store and securing a series of promotions, he quickly brought himself up from a minimum wage job to being one of the top performing salesman in the city.

Still unsatisfied, Darrell set his sights on larger prey. He took on a small Austin startup in the fitness market that was preparing a major product launch. After securing a position there, he took charge. He generated $180,000 in recurring revenue for the company in just under 6 months while simultaneously deploying a sales tracking system that was adopted and used by the entire sales staff.  This began a surge that pushed the company past the $1,000,000 per month revenue marker. In just 2 years he had also doubled his own income 3 times.

During this time, Darrell also dabbled in the Austin startup market with a company of his own called Quarter Up Events. After slowly securing equipment and marketing materials over a period of a few months, he kicked off the company with a less than stellar launch. Undeterred, Darrell worked tirelessly to perfect his methods and eventually turn Quarter Up into a small profit center. With his entrepreneurial and sales skills fully sharpened and his confidence bolstered, Darrell Malone formed Endeavor Marketing Solutions to bring change by building businesses.

To get in touch with Darrell, scope out the coffee shops of South and Central Austin. He’ll be hard to miss; just look for the towering man with the deep resonant voice. But, come ready to talk and come with a challenge; Darrell tends to listen more than he speaks and is always plotting his next big move.
