Paolo Gaudiano
They're my friends  •  Founder, Visual Exploration Meetup and Founder and CEO, Infomous. Boston grad. University of Colorado Boulder grad.
I have known Raphael for maybe 3 years. We ran into each other at a conference, then met at some entrepreneurial events, began to exchange i ... deas about our startups, and became friends along the way. I have been really impressed with Raphael's knowledge of the space, his determination, his ability to take a broad view of problems without losing sight of the details (and vice versa!). He is also very personable and someone that can be counted on for honest advice and opinions. I have been very active in the Boston and NYC entrepreneurial scenes and feel that Raphael has the potential to be one of the best entrepreneurs I have known.
Ryan Clarke, LEED AP

Nicholas McClure
Harvard Business School grad. University of Southern California grad.
First of all he is one of the brightest people I know. I can attest to this as he was a section mate of mine at Harvard Business School, and ... thus I had occasion to observe his intellect on a daily basis. Additionally, he is quite capable at strategic thought and execution, risk analysis, coupled with a keen attention to detail. Finally, I believe he possesses the emotional and gut acumen that serves him well as an entrepreneur.

Tommaso Trionfi
