Abhishek Purohit

I've known Sanket for some time now and he has been a colleague, a partner and a friend. Always driven to do the next big thing. Charismatic ... is an understatement.
Chad Bailey
We worked together  •  Financial Analyst, Houlihan Lokey. Yale grad.
Sanket's seemingly endless curiosity and passion for understanding technology make him well-equipped to be a successful entrepreneur. Whethe ... r it's discussing the details of a technology stack or the unit economics of business, his prior exposure to growth stage companies combined with his energy and thoughtfulness enable him to provide constructive advice to fellow entrepreneurs.

Nate Hoffelmeyer
We worked together  •  US Sales Manager, Account Management, HackerRank. Previously Enterprise Account Manager, HackerRank. University of Arizona grad.
Nate is someone that is incredibly passionate about any endeavor he chooses to take on and that is evidenced by his work and energy he bring ... s to every interaction, both personally and professionally. I had the pleasure of working with Nate for almost 1.5 years while we were fresh out of college and this guy is one of the smartest people I've come across. He's thorough, intellectual curious and a total doer. He's one of the most down-to-earth guys you'll meet and is always the first person to lend a hand to get things done at the highest level. I'm not sure he even knows the meaning of the word "mediocrity". Nate is a great friend and someone I confide in both personally and professionally; I highly recommend anyone interested in building something great to take the opportunity to get to know Nate as it is something that you'll never regret...I surely have not!
