Think Arnav is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Tom Howard
They're my mentor  •  CEO & Director of Research, AthenaInvest. Oregon State grad. University of Washington grad.
Have known Arnav for several years and he has joined/explored several entrepreneurial opportunities during that time. As a former tenured fu ... ll professor turned successful entrepreneur, I see myself 10 years ago in the issues Arnav is exploring right now. He would benefit significantly being involved with other forward thinking risk takers.
Meena Anderson
They're my friends  •  Financial Consultant, Performance Edge Inc..
Arnav is a visionary who is able to distill reality from abstract concepts to make applicable and thereby generate revenue. He has the drive ... to finish what he starts.
Dan Messer
They're my friends  •  OEM Business Development Executive, Dell.
I've know Arnav for the past 4 years, firstly in his position as a tenured Professor of Finance, and subsequently as an advisor, then entrep ... reneur in the FinTech space. Feedback from the companies I have introduced Arnav into have been overwhelming positive; both from the perspective of the technical/ analytical capabilities he brings to the engagement, but also his personal passion and quality of interaction with senior executives (read current & future customers). I have full confidence that a short interaction with Arnav will make clear the depth of capabilities he would bring as an advisor.
David E. Goldberg Transforming Higher Education
They're my mentor  •  Founder & President, ThreeJoy Associates, Inc.-Transforming Higher Education. University of Michigan grad. Georgetown grad. Harvard grad.
Arnav has been placing effective little bets in entrepreneurial ventures, gaining experience, growing, and learning in a thoughtful manner. ... I believe Arnav has the heart, desire, and drive to succeed.
Nancy Lam
We worked together  •  Guyette Professor of Responsible Leadership, Saint Mary's College of California. NYU grad. University of California, Berkeley grad.
Arnav is a quant guy with a strategic brain. He's not afraid to work hard and he gets along with people. All these characteristics together ... make him a valuable asset to a top management team.
Jose Plehn-Dujowich
We worked together  •  Data scientist and entrepreneur. MIT and University of Chicago grad.
Arnav has a deep analytical mind.
Mark Krob
We worked together  •  Director of Operations,
Dr. Arnav Sheth is sharp, creative, open-minded and a pleasure to work with. His sophisticated understanding of all things mathematical and ... his ability to apply that knowledge to provide real answers is exceptional. We worked with him several times to provide flexible solutions to complex mathematical problems. He not only provided us with the solutions that we needed, he pointed out improvements and gave us several options to provide us with choices for the future. He was able to show us why the algorithms he devised were the right fit for the job. He was always happy to answers our questions, whether about sophisticated math or simple understanding of the solutions. Dr. Sheth did great work for us and I would heartily recommend him and the quality of his work.

Keisuke Teeple
They're my professor  •  Co-founder and Director of Operations, BlackPepper Co. University of California, Berkeley grad. University of California, Davis grad.
Keisuke is persistent. He has what it takes to eventually make something work. He's shown himself to be a quick study on a variety of topics ... when working with me, and I'm sure he will do whatever it takes to make his startup work.
