Chance Argabright-Wees
They're my advisor: Guru Signal  •  Senior Software Engineer (Contractor), Cryptozoic Entertainment. Previously Senior Developer / Lead Gameplay Programmer, Capital J Media.
When I was starting Guru Signal, Girish acted as a supportive voice and an invaluable adviser. He helped us to understand what we would need ... to do to get the business off the ground and kept our ambitions grounded in the possible.
Arjuna Chala
They're my school  •  Sr. Director Technology, LexisNexis, HPCC Systems. Previously Director of Technology, LexisNexis, HPCC Systems.
He balances his thoughts well and has a good sense of what will succeed in the market.
Ashok Thirunarayanan
They're my friends  •  Director of Engineering, Security Business Group, Cisco Systems.
In my opinion a great entrepreneur is one who is creative & takes the risks to make his dream come true. Girish has all of it & more.
Jeff Ruby
We worked together at Intel  •  Strategic Planning Mgr, Cloud / Enterprise Software, Intel. Previously VP Business Development, Fortix (now ViaWest). Oregon State grad.
Girish is very bright, good communicator, and very driven to be an entrepreneur. I have worked with Girish for years and he is a great pers ... on, very reliable, excellent teammate, and is very passionate about business and startups. He led a startup business inside Intel and did a great job at developing a concept and getting internal funding to create the business plan and incubate it. He has built a business plan for a concept that was reviewed by two CFOs in the Portland area; they both have large company and successful startup experience and both thought the plan was well thought out and highly superior as any plans they have seen. Girish has a great combination of business acumen to go with a strong technical background. He develops sound strategies, can present well, can influence others across functional disciplines, is resourceful, can get to the core of a value proposition and business model, and is a natural leader. He grew up in a family of entrepreneurs and is highly passionate about startups - it is his life dream. I have no doubt he can be successful. I was a founder in a venture back startup that created a company from scratch and raised $3.8M in venture funding during the downturn following the dot-com crash so I have first-hand knowledge of startups.
