Paul Feibus
We worked together at Deutsche Bank  •  Associate, Deutsche Bank.
Kavan has the rare combination of analytical abilities, creativity and an outgoing personality that contributes to his entrepreneurial natur ... e and ability to run a successful startup. While working with him at Deutsche Bank and afterwards in a few side projects, Kavan was always willing to do whatever it took to complete whatever tasks presented themselves while still keeping sight of the larger picture. He focuses on working hard, but also smart and resourceful, working to maximize time and effort with minimal resources. He is driven and is also very well respected amongst his peers, former managers and colleagues at a global investment bank in a client-facing and revenue-generating role. He was and still remains a trusted former colleague and friend. There are two people to three people that I have come across in my life that I would truly be willing and comfortable putting my reputation on the line through a recommendation - Kavan is one of those people.

Kavan is a super intelligent, highly-driven, and humble entrepreneur. He is very receptive to feedback - a quality a true leader possesses. ... I am confident his venture will be a huge success and am super excited about the progress he's made thus far.

They're my friends  •  Angel Investor and Advisor to Startups, Angel Investor and Advisor. Previously Head of OEM, Disney Mobile. Harvard grad. Wharton grad.
Kavan is someone you can count on. He is reliable, committed, and diligent. He has a sharp and curious mind and asks questions that can be ... useful in uncovering opportunities.

They're my friends  •  Writer, PolicyMic, a global news and discussion forum. Previously Co-founder, Ed Tech Start-Up Venture.
Kavan Brandon would be a great entrepreneur because he has honed a clear vision and strategy for his concept, and he has the drive, work eth ... ic and discipline to execute and bring his vision to life. He is passionate and driven, yet he possesses a rare patience and flexibility to discern when something is not working and to subtly adjust his path without abandoning his overall strategy and original purpose. Furthermore, Kavan's character is impeccable. I have known him for many years, and simply put, I trust him. And I don't say that about a lot of people. I've worked with Kavan on a lot of volunteer opportunities, and he is good with people. He is a great networker, always finding the resources he needs. Moreover, as an NYU Stern grad, he possesses a great network of his own that he can share with others. Undoubtedly, Kavan is very smart, but it takes more than intelligence to be a successful entrepreneur. It takes grit, commitment and the ability to overcome failure. Kavan has all those qualities. He is also a risk-taker, stepping away from the "comforts" of Wall Street to pursue his passion. And lastly, Kavan is a natural leader. He is rarely the loudest person in the room but his confidence, influence and strength are unwavering. I give my highest recommendation for Kavan Brandon, and I am confident that he would be a significant value-add to the FounderDating network.

Kavan has taken the ultimate leap of faith. He left his position at an investment bank to pursue his entrepreneurial endeavors. He has a s ... trong vision and is focused on making it happen. I have no doubt that he will be successful, and I have utmost respect for the path which he has taken.
