Mehdi, Sarah, and I cut our entrepreneurial teeth together at Presidio Systems (originally Penergy, Inc.) in the pre-Internet days. Starting an enterprise software company for remote data collection on tablet and laptop computers back then was 100x more difficult than it is now. Mehdi was a constant source of energy and ideas.

Mehdi is a phenomenal startup advisor/coach and investor. He has always encouraged me to venture out, take risk, and to be bold.
When I started Swyft, he invested and supported me as an active advisor / coach. He has a ton of experience building technology companies and he really knows his stuff (product, business strategy, go to market plans, etc). He is always happy to meet and help however he can.
I would highly recommend him as an advisor/investor to anyone wanting to build a successful company.
