Vouch for them.

James Dougherty
They're my current cofounder  •  President of EMEA and Americas, Capvision. Previously VP of Global Operations, Capvision.
I've worked with Bob for over 3 years, 1.5 years as a co-founder. He has been a highly reliable and competent partner in our venture. Alway ... s seeing angles that I may overlook and finding very practical solutions that are executed flawlessly. Along with these executive attributes, he has a very holistic view of businesses and surprises on the upside for the many potentialities and reprecussions of decisions and actions that he takes into account in decision-making.
Geoffrey Greene
They're my school  •  Managing Director, Kaymu Ethiopia | Rocket Internet GmbH. Previously Client Services Director, Frontier Strategy Group. Georgetown grad.
Bob (or "Bobby" as most people know him) is the most unique type of entrepreneur--combining the resourcefulness and risk-appetite of youth w ... ith an old soul. You won't see Bob among the lemmings chasing shiny things. He's been on the front lines of operations and tech in China and Germany, and has seen startups and multinationals alike rush face-first into disaster. Bob knows a viable business model and has proven ability to execute. He's going to work harder than anyone you know, and tell it as it is.
James Dougherty
We worked together  •  President of EMEA and Americas, Capvision. Previously VP of Global Operations, Capvision.
Robert is diligent and focused always on the task at hand. He is capable of putting himself in another's shoes and bring up new angles to a ... situation that we would have not considered ourselves. I always stress test my ideas with him and often find there were blind spots in didn't notice, not sure what could be more valuable in an advisor!
Colin Krainin
They're my advisor  •  Postdoctoral Fellow, Princeton University and Postdoctoral Researcher in International Political Economy, University of Mannheim.
Bob is extremely creative, hard working, intelligent, thoughtful, and charismatic. I have known him for over 15 years and these qualities h ... ave shown through in all of our professional and personal interactions. I can't think of anyone better to have on your side as an advisor or business partner.

Geoffrey Greene
They're my school  •  Managing Director, Kaymu Ethiopia | Rocket Internet GmbH. Previously Client Services Director, Frontier Strategy Group. Georgetown grad.
Geoff is among the most comprehensive thinkers that I know. When I say 'comprehensive', I mean that he considers all potential perspectives ... on a matter, not just his own or the well-known ones of others. He and I attended Georgetown University together, and so for the first years of our friendship we were surrounded by all things political. I was consistently humbled or put in my place by the diverse perspectives that he would bring to bear in debates or conversations -- and they weren't even necessarily always his own perspectives, but simply OTHER relevant perspectives. This forced me to better investigate things before arriving at whatever stance I would eventually claim as my own on a matter. Since leaving Washington, DC, and entering the business worlds that he and I have respectively entered into, I've seen him utilize the same broad and fair approach to business, particularly startup business, where the well-known perspectives and hypotheses on matters either don't exist yet, or are highly vulnerable to being false. This is but one of Geoff's many equally valuable character traits. If for whatever reason further elaboration is required, please let me know.

James Dougherty
They're my current cofounder  •  President of EMEA and Americas, Capvision. Previously VP of Global Operations, Capvision.
James has the full set of 'standard' skills that any successful entrepreneur would be expected to have -- clear and effective communication, ... thoroughness and attention to detail, and commitment to fulfilling responsibilities. When I say 'standard', I do not mean that these things are to be taken for granted, but simply that while James is strong in these areas, these areas are not what set him apart. In nearly two years of running a startup venture together, which was preceded by two years of working in the same company together, what I have come to appreciate most about James -- the things that I believe set him apart -- are his ability to bring people (partners, investors, employees, etc.) together across sometimes substantial gaps, his ability to stay calm, thoughtful, and deliberate in uncertain or tense times, and his ability to network for sales and market presence among institutional / large business clients.
