Vouch for them.

Steve McAveeney
We worked together at EMC  •  Digital Marketing Consultant, Optimac Consulting and VP, Digital Marketing, GFI Software.
Vasilios is very knowledgable about technology and startups. I often consult with him when I have questions about strategy. He can execute ... efficiently and effectively, yet he is also a great idea guy, who loves talking about what could be. I highly recommend him as an advisor or cofounder.
Bill Jacobson
We worked together  •  Co-Founder, CEO, Workbar and Partner, Techpoint Ventures, LLC. University of Michigan grad.
Vasilios has the rare quality of being able to see and communicate a big picture vision while also building and executing the detailed steps ... needed get there. When we co-founded PickupZone Vasilios took to the broad concept, refined it, made the operations work (no small feat!) and racked up customers and investment opportunity as we progressed. People often talk about having spirit of, 'hey we don't know till we try' and refinement through a data-driven, iterative approach. I've seen Vasilios live this with our PickupZone venture. I'm excited to see what Vasilios and an equally talented, driven and articulate cofounder are able to create.

We worked together  •  Infographic Design & Digital Media Marketing, @EvonaWiktoria Infographic Design.
Having known Vasilios for close to five years I would highly recommend him as a company cofounder, team member and advisor. I've seen him in ... each of these roles over the years. Working and communicating with people is one of Vasilios' strengths. More recently, from the perspective of having Vasilios as an advisor, when analyzing a problem together he asks the right questions in order to look deeper into the business structure and processes - he's very hands on and has offered valuable insight into many of my projects. He's a genuine and creative entrepreneur that I'm glad to have as a part of my network.

Vasilios has a wide range of experience as a successful entrepreneur and venture capitalist. His passion for innovative business models and ... knowledge of trends in technology and business make him a great entrepreneur.

Evona Niewiadomska evona.wiktoria@gmail.com
They're my advisor  •  Infographic Design & Digital Media Marketing, @EvonaWiktoria Infographic Design.
Evona has the unique quality of being upbeat and a pleasure to work with while simultaneously having a no-nonsense approach when it comes to ... completing the mission. I've known Evona for more than 5 years and during that time she built WorkBar Boston, launched her design business, and created her latest startup. Evona perpetually shows the initiative, vision and follow-through of an entrepreneur. She tackles new challenges head-on and acquires new skillsets easily. Evona is strong operationally and creatively. She excels and leverages all resources to get the job done and she is a major networking resource around Boston. Having advised her on Undiscovered Kitchen, I find her very responsive to feedback and also quick to internalize and take action on new information. If you are a co-founder or advisor, I highly recommend working with Evona.
