Gaurav Sharma
We worked together at The Founder Institute  •  Founder, Right Buy • Founder, Bollywood Mantra • Worked at Intuit, StepUp Commerce, • CS
I have seen him passionately work on his first company and moving things ahead. He has been able to build a successful team for his first bu ... siness and I am confident his new venture will do great.
Harshit Shah
We worked together at UrbanPiper
Devarshi is one of the very few individuals I know who has superior technical aptitude, good sense of product design and relentless hunger t ... o learn and improve; all in one person. He is my go-to person for anything related to tech. I have personally observed how fast he can learn new technologies. He is comfortable with all part of the tech stack; essentially do what is needed to turn his ideas into implemented product. Very few people can excel at both. And Devarshi is one of them. To top this; he has a very positive outlook and high perseverance. All of these qualities gives him a great shot at entrepreneurship and I have no hesitation in vouching for him.
Misha Chellam
They're my advisor
I've had the pleasure of working closely with Devarshi as a friend & advisor. I'm completely confident in his ability to execute as an entr ... epreneur, he's got drive, vision, and an even temperament to weather the ups and downs of startup life.
Chandini Ammineni
They're my friends
Devarshi is both an intelligent technologist and a great team builder. I would start a business with him.

Vishal Kalia
They're my friends
Vishal is a resourceful and enterprising technologist. Having known him for over 2 years now, I have seen him passionately work on his fashi ... on startup idea, finding resources to build out an MVP, refining the product, and identifying the go-to-market strategy. He already has a good start, and at this point, it seems natural for him to start building a team. Finding a tech cofounder who shares his passion for fashion, and complements his domain & business skills will help him move faster.

Rob Weedn
They're my friends
I've seen Rob work on his current idea (StartupSignal) - taking it from a concept, to validating with users, and into a basic prototype. He' ... s taught himself how to program, which says something about a guy with a business background! To take his idea to the next level, he needs to pair up with an awesome technical co-founder, one which I'm sure FD can help him find!

Harry Shah
We worked together  •  Big Data Consulting. Previously Led Data Platforms @ eBay and Engineering @ Gooru. Passionate about Data and K-12
I co-founded a startup previously with Harry. We worked together to build out the early product, acquire our first customers and spent time ... talking to them to identify challenges and opportunities. Harry brings a blend of tech + biz acumen to the table, and has been working with data all his professional life - at eBay, LinkedIn, Gooru and elsewhere. Most importantly, he has spent the last few years understanding the edtech space - the challenges, the ecosystem and what it would take to get a foot in the door. He is passionate about it, and is the guy to make things happen with the right team.
