Vouch for them.

Gopi Sundaram
We worked together  •  Managing Director, Granahan McCourt Capital. Previously Principal, Granahan McCourt Capital.
Ellyn consistently demonstrates ample leadership - by way of vision (she knows where she's going), guidance (she is able to bring her team a ... long - and has done that consistently and successfully) and drive (she is extremely hardworking, a great multi-tasker, and relentless in pursuing her goal). She inspires confidence, is a constant source of support for everyone around her, and has strong core values - she sees the true North and gets her organization to do the same. One rarely finds an entrepreneur who is hard-charging and empathetic at the same time. And I am sure this will take her far.
