CEO of @Proven.com, @AngelList success story...Stanford GSB grad...jiu-jitsu, guitars, dogs.
Mike, Ash, and the Morado team have been tremendously valuable for our company. From their quarterly mixers -- attended by luminaries from across the Valley -- to their tremendous willingness to help directly, to their extensive network of advisors/partners/customers, working with Morado has been an unambiguous asset to our company.
One of the strongest high points has been their direct, hands-on operating experience, and their connection to dozens of others in similar positions. The Valley is chockablock with people who can introduce you to a banker or strategist, but when we wanted to speak to head of editorial for a major network, or the CTO of a massively scalable platform, or a senior Ad Sales manager, it was invaluable.
Mike and Ash Patel from Morado gave us our first real break, after which the money started chasing us, instead of the other way around. Mike makes decisions quickly and puts his money where his mouth is. If he believes in your vision, you will be hard pressed to find a beter champion for your company.
