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.

Yasin Abbak
They're my friends  •  Paired Media | Co Founder | CEO Rethinking offline advertising.
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.
