Vouch for them.

Stephen Johnston
They're my advisor  •  Partner, Generator Ventures and Co-Founder, Innovation Leaders Fund. Harvard Business School grad.
Passion, knowledge about the space, speed & humility
Julian Diaz
They're my friends  •  Lead Developer, One Financial Holdings. Previously Owner, JDi Softworks, LLC. University of Pennsylvania grad.
Yasin has a keen grasp on the sales process and the kind of business acumen that I usually see from people at least twice his age. He's extr ... emely professional and always holds true to his word. Given he is one of the rare few who can see the things that others miss, one would be wise to take his advice when he gives it.
Paru Radia
They're my friends  •  Entrepreneur: Creator, Founder and Owner, The iKen Group Inc.. Previously President / Business Owner / Entrepreneur, Aargee Inc..
He is polite, professional, knowledgeable, persistent, a 'doer', decisive and moves at the speed of sound(!). Yasin has great communication ... skills and an excellent 'coaching' style. I have had many discussions with Yasin about my own start-ups. He listens well, quickly cuts through the extra information, challenges actions and decisions, checks understanding and makes sound suggestions on next steps. He does not waste time. He is also humble.
Neil Mukhi
We worked together  •  Vice President, Private Banker, Morgan Stanley Private Bank.
Yasin has all the necessary skills to be a great advisor. Thoughtful, professional, intelligent, resource savy, efficient. I would highly re ... commend Yasin.
Alexander Vo
They're my friends  •  Financial Aid Counselor, American Musical and Dramatic Academy. Previously Co-Founder / Director of Operations, PixieBar.
Yasin is currently an advisor in NYC and has proven himself invaluable to their success, specifically in the areas of sales and fantastic bu ... siness vision. He instantly recognizes value and his track record demonstrates that ability.
Anastasia (Stacy) Sailer
They're my friends  •  New York Regional Counselor, University of South Carolina. Previously Operations Associate, Birchbox.
Yasin is the most ambitious person I know. He executes hard and fast and isn't afraid of challenges, he's driven by them. Yasin has won awar ... ds for his public speaking and sits on the board of multiple organizations. He can sell anything to anyone and make them love his sparking personality in the process. I couldn't as for a better partner.

Paru Radia
They're my advisor  •  Entrepreneur: Creator, Founder and Owner, The iKen Group Inc.. Previously President / Business Owner / Entrepreneur, Aargee Inc..
The question I am answering is "Why would Paru be a great entrepreneur?" The reality is that Paru is already a great entrepreneur. She is ag ... gressive when she needs to be, and is always looking to learn. She is persistent and fearless, two very important qualities for an entrepreneur.

Ahmet Can
We worked together  •  I am a catalyst for companies that are looking to grow. After five start-ups with two successful exits, I can help you scale your company.
Experienced, connected, and a blast to work with. Ahmet is a powerhouse of an advisor. To us, the best part is that he knows when to step fo ... rward and when to step back to best fill in the gaps that a quickly scaling startup needs.

Todd Outten
We worked together  •  Chief Technology Officer, WinUru, Inc. and Chief Technical Architect, Edco.
Todd has a strong entrepreneurial background, with a lot of major milestones under his belt. At Paired, we're lucky to have done a cold outr ... each to him and asked him if he would make time to have coffee with us. Fast forward 18 months and many, many more coffees later, he has been there for us when things were good and when we've had our backs against the wall. Here are the major strengths he demonstrated to us: He connects dots, and doesn't hesitate to make introductions when the time is right. He is the "grey hair" without a lot of grey hair. If you're going through something as an entrepreneur, chances are he's been through it too. Twice. He will call you out on your sh*t, and it's exactly what you need. Expect to be held accountable.

Melanie Deziel
We worked together  •  Award-winning branded content strategist & author. Founder of native advertising industry newsletter, The Overlap League. Educator & speaker
Melanie is a native advertising savant. She is both exceptionally creative and able to sell, which makes her a rare find. She's also fantas ... tic at teaching. If you can grab her attention and have her commit time to you, congratulations. She's usually traveling the world as a guest speaker and expert in the conference circuit.
