Tuan Ha
They're my school  •  MBA Candidate Class of 2015, Yale School of Management. Previously MBA Product Marketing Intern, Intuit.
Deepak isn't afraid to take chances but has the wherewithal to absorb enough information to make sound decisions. I've worked with Deepak on ... numerous occasions and can vouch to his willingness to take whatever leadership position (whether direct or indirect) to grow a company. While seemingly cliche today as nearly everyone wants to work with a tech start-up, Deepak has both the technical chops and business sense to build a successful company.
Vivek Ladsariya
They're my school  •  Venture Capital, Fenox VC. Previously Co-Founder, Moyyer Research.
Deepak is a solid programmer and a dreamer
Jennifer McFadden
They're my professor  •  Associate Director, Entrepreneurial Programs, Yale School of Management and Founder, HAPPYMADE*.
Deepak is driven, thoughtful, and creative. He has the willingness/ability to put his head down and crank out great code, as well as to step ... back and spent time talking to users and thinking through the product. He is great at product and project management, but is also able to build. He is easy to get along with and capable of taking on the 10K tasks that you need to master to build a successful venture.
Chris Fleming
They're my school  •  Venture Creation Advisor, Yale Entrepreneurial Institute. Previously Founder, wrkIN LLC. Columbia University in the City of New York grad.
Deepak is a highly analytical and friendly entrepreneur. He is great at diving deep into details while maintaining view of the bigger pictur ... e. He has been incredibly generous with his time for my own venture and is well liked by everyone who works with him. Can't recommend him highly enough!
Kyle Jensen
They're my advisor  •  Shanna and Eric Bass ’05 Director of Entrepreneurial Programs & Lecturer in Entrepreneurship, Yale School of Management.
I work with Deepak at Yale. He's thoughtful about start-ups and is a skilled developer.
Purva Gupta
We worked together  •  Founder, Lily. Building emotional intelligence for commerce. Saatchi & Saatchi, Khosla Impact Fund, UNICEF. 3 yrs startup @Eko. ISB MBA.
Deepak has the hunger to do something kick ass. His sound technical skills along with the passion and perseverance will take him a long way. ... His ability to think thoroughly about different scenarios in any problem is amazing. I wish him the very best and I am sure he will attract a Co-founder who will compliment him. He's a smart guy who will do very well, I have no doubt.
Mayli M
We worked together  •  Communications Manager, Maison Anna Heylen. Yale grad.
Deepak has an inventive, creative, and lucid mind which he uses with dedication, perseverance, and compassion for all involved.

Purva Gupta
We worked together  •  Founder, Lily. Building emotional intelligence for commerce. Saatchi & Saatchi, Khosla Impact Fund, UNICEF. 3 yrs startup @Eko. ISB MBA.
Purva is deeply passionate about technology and about starting something revolutionary – not just evolutionary; she dreams big. During my ... time working with Purva, I found her enthusiasm and appetite for research inspiring, and it is not very difficult to notice that her passion is infectious. It is my belief that the ideal co-founder will share this passion and compliment Purva's keen business acumen with his/her engineering/technology savvy.

Jennifer McFadden
We worked together  •  Associate Director, Entrepreneurial Programs, Yale School of Management and Founder, HAPPYMADE*.
I have worked closely with Jennifer, and I think one of the very first things you’ll notice about her is that she is extremely passionate ... about startups and working with and advising entrepreneurs. Jennifer has been and is currently advising me on a technology/social networking startup at Yale University, and I think that Jennifer is not only very knowledgeable about the strategic and marketing aspects of starting up in a highly competitive social networking market but also up to date with the state of affairs in this rapidly evolving space. Jennifer also goes above and beyond the scope of just an advisor, being scrappy and making things happen – whether it’d be by forcing you to think about the short-term operational tasks and their prioritization or the company’s long-term vision and taking strategic initiatives to stay on course to achieve that vision or making high-profile connections happen way beyond an academic setting. In summary, I think Jennifer is an immensely knowledgeable and genuine advisor, who can help entrepreneurs tremendously with both operational and strategic aspects of starting and running a company as they try to navigate the fairly unstructured world of early stage startups.
