Think Rohit is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Lars Føleide
They're my school  •  Chief Executive Officer, Nevara and PhD Entrepreneurship, BI Norwegian Business School. University of California, Berkeley grad.
Rohit is beyond tenacious. He is skilled in many areas, gets done whatever is needed and doesn't give up. Such drive is critical for any sta ... rtup to success, and is by far the single most important factor for entrepreneurial success. Rohit and I have much the same passion for startups and universities, where I am primarily focused on allocating funds to cover marketing and development costs. Not to mention the cost of expanding to all major universities. But much still needs to get done in one pilot study, before needing to worry about the expensive international expansion. I could tell early on that Rohit is going to make it big one day, just by observing his passion and drive to succeed. If you never give up, then you can never fail either. But any great entrepreneur needs a team, and I hope this is the place to find them!
Peter Amalraj
They're my friends  •  Founder, Valore Labs and Entrepreneur/Advisor, Independent.
Always looking for problems to solve and ways to apply his experience
Karthik Gajjala
They're my friends  •  Vice President, Data Infrastructure and Services, [24]7. Previously Cloud Engineering, eBay Inc..
Rohit is always challenges the status quo and tinkers with things. He is very analytical in his thought process and goes to great lengths to ... persuade others to see his perspective which are some of the key ingredients for an entrepreneur.
Ryan Micheletti
They're my friends  •  Account Executive, Mainz Brady Group and Director of Operations, Vet-Tech Startup Accelerator.
Rohit and I are working together on "Uniconn" and he is a part of our accelerator. He is a great entrepreneur because he is very intelligent ... , analytical and driven. Rohit is also a great engineer as well as a manager. He displays the tenacity and commitment to see his project all the way through.
Arushi Bhandari
We worked together  •  Technical Accounting Manager, SOAProjects, Inc. Previously Accountant, Outforce LLC. University of California, Santa Cruz grad.
Rohit has a great passion for start ups. Not only does he have a strong technical foundation but he is extremely knowledgeable. He has stron ... g communication skills and I have always admired his persistence and perseverance - the key skill sets to making a successful entrepreneur.
Geva Solomonovich
They're my school  •  CTO, Openbucks. Previously Development manager, PayPal.
I've known Rohit for 5 years now, and have spent numerous hours speaking and collaborating with him on a wide range of things. This intimate ... relationship allows me to say that he brings a rare mix of technical skills in a variety of domains, and business skills with a keen interest in problem/need identification and how to solve them. That diversity allows Rohit to be able to wear multiple hats which is essential in a startup. I find Rohit to be tenacious, and I know he is set on being successful as an entrepreneur, despite some unsuccessful attempts. Most importantly, he's opinionated but easy to get along with - which is exactly what I would look for in a co-founder.
Sriram Subramanian
They're my school  •  Cofounder & CEO, ShoppinPal. Previously Senior Product Manager - Branded Checkout, Global Operations, PayPal. Carnegie Mellon grad.
Rohit managed to conceptualize and create a cool product while working FT at Adobe and attending Haas. That's quite a mean feat by any stand ... ards. He's pretty passionate about entrepreneurship and I've always had a good time brainstorming with him. A big plus is he has the business as well as tech chops!
Parimi L Srinivas
They're my school  •  Senior Manager/Senior Product Manager, Brocade.
Rohit is very good talking in understanding the target industry verticals, refining the business model with customer feedback.
Jim
They're my school
