Vouch for them.

Anshuman Mishra, MBA, FRM
They're my friends  •  Product Manager, Financial Services, Ayasdi. Previously Product and Marketing Manager, Computational Finance, The MathWorks.
Nilanjan's ability to deeply analyze competitive dynamics across multiple industries is a rare asset - he manages to rapidly pinpoint areas ... of untapped value, identify inefficiencies and the reasons for their existence, and define potential markets that bear the brunt of these inefficiencies. In my past life as an entrepreneur, I repeatedly sought his advice on particularly thorny issues regarding product-market fit and market-solution fit; each time, he was remarkably accessible, and his inputs were extremely valuable towards my decision making process. Entrepreneurs, spanning the technical and non-technical divide, would be lucky to have him as a business partner and advisor.

Go-getter, hard-working, quick learner and a great conversationalist. These are some of the attributes that come to my mind when I think of ... Nilanjan Mishra. I have had the pleasure and privilege to work alongside him for the past year. His intense knowledge about financial markets are complimented by a relentless work-ethic and immaculate communication skills which is a skill set very few possess. He earns the respect of his clients, peers and executives for both the high-quality work he produces, and the passion he brings to each project. He's simply the guy you want on your side if you need to get something done. Every Interaction I had with him, he only impressed me more as he comes up with solutions rather than problems. And on top of all that...he's a great person and a even better friend.
Alessandro Boga
They're my friends  •  Account Director, Colangelo & Partners Public Relations. Previously Account Supervisor, Colangelo & Partners Public Relations. NYU grad.
I've known Nilanjan for almost 6 years now and we've been good friends since we first met. I don't think I know another person who is more d ... riven, tenacious and hungry as this guy. His level of knowledge in the most different fields impress me all times, there's no other person I can speak comfortably about any topic. One of the smartest person I was lucky to meet, he's also a very good friend who doesn't abandon you in difficult situations. If there's one person I'd like to start up a company with, that would be Nilanjan.

They're my school  •  Co-Founder & CEO, Stealth Startup. Previously Head of Business Development, AnyPerk.
I've know Nilanjan for five years now. He is one of the most intelligent and hungry folks I have had the opportunity to associate with. He i ... s very analytical and has a keen eye for strategy and execution. I am currently on my third startup (first sold for over 100M, second is on pace to do the same, and just started my third in Fintech). Have managed teams of up to 20 people, I have a good grasp of understanding what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. My first two companies I was employee number one and watched these companies grow to teams of 50+. Nilanjan possess the rare set of skills and persistence needed to be a successful entrepreneur. I'd hire him, or co-found something with him in a heartbeat. Nilanjan would truly be an asset to any founding team. His experience in industry and innate skills and motivation make him a fantastic candidate to Founder Dating. I am more than happy to put my reputation on the line to support his candidacy. Nilanjan is a natural born entrepreneur and I'd happily invest in his endeavor, whatever it might me.

Jessica Faith
They're my friends  •  Director of Business Development, Moppy. Previously Director of Development, Friends of the Children NY. Vanderbilt grad.
Jessica is extremely intelligent, driven, and compassionate. Her background in fundraising and working for non profits as well as working wi ... th children has given rise to her own focus and idea on creating a platform for parents of young children to meet and share experiences. Her relentless work ethic, passion, and an entrepreneurial spirit have helped her bring her idea to life, and is now in beta testing. She has traversed the entire domain from ideating to executing by herself and would be a rare and unique asset to have as part of a startup team. Finally, Jessica is the pure combination of a compassionate spirit and a relentless drive. She is simply a great person to know and is a pleasure to work with as a business partner.
