Devarshi Shah
We worked together  •  Formerly: Founder/CEO, Imbue. Founder/CEO @ UrbanPiper, Lemnos Labs & Founder Institute alum, Project Lead, Context platform @ Qualcomm.
I co-founded a startup previously with Harry. We worked together to build out the early product, acquire our first customers and spent time ... talking to them to identify challenges and opportunities. Harry brings a blend of tech + biz acumen to the table, and has been working with data all his professional life - at eBay, LinkedIn, Gooru and elsewhere. Most importantly, he has spent the last few years understanding the edtech space - the challenges, the ecosystem and what it would take to get a foot in the door. He is passionate about it, and is the guy to make things happen with the right team.

Harry has been a great advisor to me. He has significant experience working at big companies (e.g., eBay) and building his own startup.

To tell you why Harry is a great entrepreneur, I first need to tell you why he's wrong for you. If you are looking for a well-rounded techn ... ical co-founder to help you execute on your awesome game-changing vision, Harry is wrong for you. True, he's a well-rounded technical person with both technical and product insights, but he's not a simple execution artist. Harry's stragetic mind and customer-oriented approach are tremendous assets. If he joins you, expect a full partner that will evolve your common vision with you together. If you have an amazing idea that you know your target market will undoubtedly love, Harry is wrong for you. Most people who claim they know exactly what their customers want without actually talking to customers are wrong. It takes research and data to understand this. This is Harry's domain. He knows the need to act quickly on proven data - plus how to get such data quickly. Expect a highly analytical mind that can make data-driven decisions at startup speed and turn instantly when necessary. If you are looking for a grand-slam exit, or even a soft landing as an acqui-hire, Harry is wrong for you. He is a mission-driven entrepreneur that answers to a higher calling than most other startup founders. He doesn't only want to change the world, he wants to substantially and realistically change it for the better. Now if you're looking for a true partner to join you on a mission to make a real change, then Harry is your man. It's not the product, it's the market. It's not about vitamins, it's about pain killers. It's not about startups, it's about the team and the cause and the purpose.

Harry gave me some very good advise when I began to work on my product/platform to allow non-techies to automate business processes. His ad ... vise saved me a lot of time and put me on the right path.
