Rajesh Lalwani
We worked together  •  Co-founder & CEO, Bitcovery. Previously Product Management (Advisor), @WalmartLabs. Stanford grad. Penn State grad.
Robert has all the qualities of an entrepreneur and a business person. He is constantly looking for emerging opportunities. He can take an i ... dea from spotting to prototyping to turning it into a real business!
John Fan
They're my friends
He combines business sense with strong technical skills, and knows how to make things happen. For one of his previous projects (DateMyPet), ... he looked into hiring a PR agency but once he talked with them and heard the list of things they do, he then just went and did it himself, getting coverage in national newspapers and TV shows.
Jason Oliver
We worked together  •  CTO, bMobilized Inc and Technical Advisor / VP Product Developement, myIDkey. University of Southern California grad.
Robert has a great attitude and the aptitude to get a product from concept to market. I've worked with Robert in the past and would definite ... ly work with him again, if the opportunity arose. He's a proven entrepreneur and has a knack for spotting trends before they become one. He's constantly researching, learning and improving himself. Robert would be an asset to any team.

Robert is a proven entrepreneur and an asset to any team. He can really spot trends early and translate them into the product or business. R ... obert can take an idea from napkin to market, he's a real go getter and very professional. I'd work with him again, anytime.

Philosophy: "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." "Life is short. Build stuff that matters."
Robert is a champion. I met him a while go through a entrepreneurial group that I joined when I move to the Bay. At that time his apps were ... ruling MySpace! Later he has been a great product manager at Kosmix and Walmart Lab.
