How I like to work with people As a Cofounder


As an Advisor

People. I really get people. I listen intently, I can talk to anyone – thus I can find common ground with almost all. I understand people and what makes them tick. Sales and business development come naturally – I am unfazed by the answer “no”; if anything, it makes me more determined. As a result, I’m pretty resilient – I don’t get fazed by setbacks or failures – I learn, regroup, and move forward.

I'm most interested in team formation and development. Based on my experience of working with hundreds of student and alumni entrepreneurs at HBS, I know how rapidly assess a team, construct scenarios to test the dynamic of the team, and adjust quickly - that may be coaching a team or swiftly hiring/de-hiring members of the team.

They're my friends
Incredibly thoughtful and a great out-of-box thinker. He's also an amazing listener - one of the best I've ever met. We were brought toget ... her to test out an idea via Steve Papa(founder of Endeca) and though the idea did not have legs, we became fast friends and still use each other as sounding boards for our respective projects/ideas.
