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.

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.
