Vouch for them.

Peter Borum
They're my current cofounder  •  Steering Committee Member, The Wharton Angel Network and Co-Founder/CEO, Reelio, Inc.. Wharton grad. Stanford grad.
Ben is one of the best, if not the very best, leaders I have ever had the privilege of knowing. He is capable of breaking very complex task ... s into actionable steps, empowering others to do their best work, and instilling a sense of confidence and faith that the mission will be a success. He knows a lot about a LOT of things, and at least a little bit about pretty much everything. He intimately understands the emotional, financial, and psychological stress that starting a company requires, and can help people to focus on the things that are within their control while finding ways to bring the uncontrollable to bear over time.
Joaquin Roca
We worked together  •  CEO, theScaffold and New York Leader, Venwise. NYU grad.
Ben has a ton of experience in an incredibly broad range of industries including the military, large multinationals, small businesses, and s ... tartups. He would make a great advisor for anyone lucky enough to connect with him.
Brian R. Torcato, MD MBA MRCP(UK)
They're my school  •  Philadelphia area Pediatrician and autism entrepreneur. Wharton grad. Member of the Royal College of Physicians of the United Kingdom
Ben is an amazingly bright individual - in my personal experience - one of the smartest guys in our Wharton MBA class. He's also been invol ... ved in start ups from back in his undergraduate days at Penn. Furthermore, he's been a co-founder in his latest start up over the last 2 years, contributing to its phenomenal success. He's also displayed a keen willingness to advise and mentor his classmates and friends with incisive and practical suggestions. His combination of smarts and real world experience makes him a great advisor and mentor.
Rebecca Chin
We worked together  •  Director, OPEN Content & Communicatons, MediaMath. Previously Associate Director, Startup Institute. University of Pennsylvania grad.
Ben's leadership radiates from him. He has a way of commanding a room's attention while also putting people at ease with how fully he listen ... s and how open he is with advice. I have worked with Ben for almost a year and it's always a pleasure to have him come mentor our up and coming startup talent. If the next wave of startup does are half of what Ben is as a leader in his company and the community, the NYC tech scene will be in good hands.

Brian R. Torcato, MD MBA MRCP(UK)
They're my school  •  Philadelphia area Pediatrician and autism entrepreneur. Wharton grad. Member of the Royal College of Physicians of the United Kingdom
Brian is a top-tier thinker with broad experience in the medical fields; he's passionate and knowledgeable about the space and wants to make ... a bigger impact than simple medical practice. Along with the skills and network he's gained from his MBA, he is well-positioned to lead or co-found a startup in the medical field at large. But more important is that he is endlessly driven and simultaneously self-aware, with a great sense of humor to balance that drive.
