Amitt is exactly the kind of investor you want fighting your corner -- he knows everyone in the valley, has earned a tremendous amount of respect in his own endeavors, isn't afraid to speak his mind,...more and takes the time to learn about the strengths of your product. His advocacy is both passionate and sincere, which makes it incredibly powerful. I'm not sure where we'd be without Amitt on our side, he's genuinely an indispensable partner. Demetri Detsaridis

- As an investor/advisor, my focus has been on growth, product management, and engineering. I can also assist with intros, hiring, analytics, and social design.
I like to meet passionate people with a track-record of success either at a startup they founded or joined. I care deeply about what, specifically, you did at your prior role, up-to and including product and technical decisions you made. Explain what you're looking for and I'll see if I can help.
Amitt has truly been one of our most proactive investors, going out of his way to hustle for us, in any way we've asked. If you have the opportunity, we would definitely recommend getting Amitt on board!

Amitt is one of the most founder friendly investors I know. He has strong operational and product management experience. He knows what the ups and downs are like starting a business from the ground up. He has been an inspiring investor to have on board and has gone above and beyond to help us build our network in the Valley. I highly recommend him!

Amitt is been one of our best investors by far. He is really well connected, has helped us make tremendous connections and introductions, he has helped us recruit talent, and has provided us great advice. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for investment or advice.

Amitt has been a fantastic investor. He was the first investor in our seed round and quickly went to work for us. He has made numerous high value introductions and has helped us raise additional funds from triple AAA investors. It is obvious that he is very well liked and respected in the tech and VC community. Its great having him in our corner.

Just started our journey with Amitt and I can already see why he is such a highly-regarded investor. Proactive, check. Active advisor, check. Sounding board, check. And he is so well connected. Great to have him on our side.

If you have an early stage company, you definitely want Amitt as an investor. He's the very definition of smart money. Even though Amitt was our first investor, he continually provides great introductions and advice as if he was our last investor. If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to get him on board...get it done.
