Erica Sivertson
We worked together  •  Director of Development & Team Lead, Valiant Health, Wolverine Venture Fund. Previously Executive Office Intern, Consumer Reports.
Nickhil is extremely talented and analytical, which makes it easy to work with him. He is direct and enjoys feedback. Additionally, I am imp ... ressed by his ability to see around corners in gauging where a particular market or company is going. Having worked closely with him in the past, I trust his advice and learned a great deal from him.
Yee Chen
They're my school  •  Product Manager, Zynga. Previously VC Fellow, Wolverine Venture Fund. University of California, Los Angeles grad.
I've worked on a number of deals through the Wolverine Venture Fund with Nickhil, and he's exhibited tremendous ability to lead deal teams, ... assess founding teams, and analyze overall market/strategy. He knows when and how to ask the tough questions, and all of his experiences culminated to his current PM role at Amazon. I have no doubt he'll be a valuable asset to the FD network.
Stephen Wai
They're my school  •  Operations and Analytics, Twilio Inc.. Previously Product Manager Intern, Cisco.
Nickhil's background in investment banking gives him an extensively deep knowledge of the market and strategy of technology companies and st ... artups. Coupled with his newly gained skills and experience as a product manager, he has completely rounded out his skill set and is now intimately familiar with the development and delivery of tech products. In my experiences in and out of the classroom with Nickhil I have always been impressed by the Nickhil's intellectual rigor and thoughtfulness. I have full confidence that Nickhil has what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur and think he would be a great partner.
