Rahul and I met back in 2007 during my early start-up days. Quick to assess and engage, I thought him to be pragmatic, with a precise point ... of view. Rahul's guidance on 'What', 'Where' and 'How' helped us with our business strategy. In my second encounter, Rahul was pivotal in guiding us on building a business case and introducing us to VCs in Singapore and India. I believe he can add great value to any start-up looking to seek his advice. I wish Rahul great success and looking forward to his advice in my next venture. Mohit.
