When we first started talking to Bala about intvesting, I thought it would be a great match to have him on board at CLARA. He immediately bought into the grand vision of what we were trying to achieve. With him he brought a voice that consistently was guiding us and offering alternative options...more to expand our horizon. Leaving us room to make decisions on our own, yet seeing the opportunities in front of us.
I would highly recommend working with Bala on any project or a startup. He's a good mentor and a good person to talk to. He's open and honest and respectful of the decisions you make both for the business and personally.
Bala has had a big impact on the Icelandic startup community. Not only has he been active as a mentor and investor but he has also built a bridge from Iceland to larger markets. I have gotten some invaluable advice from Bala and I am very grateful to have had a chance to work with him.
