Think Eugene is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Alexander Klokus
They're my current cofounder
Eugene has an unparalleled work ethic- the likes of which I've never seen before. He has worked 24 hours/day (literally) on projects that he ... is passionate about, and is a complete entrepreneur. Despite only recently graduating, his experience would make seasoned startup founders jealous, and he's just getting started. Best of all, he's one of the nicest guys around. If I were to bet on an individual succeeding, it would be this young man right here
Bilal Memon
They're my investor  •  Entrepreneur in Residence, Digital First Ventures. Previously Associate, TechStars.
I have never met anybody with Eugene's hustle and determination. He has a real passion for technology and is super creative. He has a wide a ... rray of experiences ranging from VC to Startups to Financial Service to Consulting. He knows exactly what he wants to do and that is building a product in which he will be the number one customer! Eugene will be a very successful individual and there is no doubt about that. One of his best traits is that he is a big team player and this characteristic alone speaks to his selfless persona.

Kunal Mehta
We worked together  •  Program Finance, charity: water and Founder, Mehta Apartments.
Kunal has an excellent background in business having worked on multiple ventures, in addition to writing a book called 'The Disruptors Book' ... which has interviews discussing the entrepreneur process. I have worked with him over the last year and watched the ventures he has worked on grow substantially. He is methodical, driven, tenacious, and gets things done. He also has the attributes of being patient and humble when working with others and communicates things clearly. These are qualities that are very important for a co-founder. I recommend Kunal without reservation to anyone interested in working with him and I look forward to seeing what he accomplishes in the near future.
