Raj is an active seed investor / advisor / mentor and has invested in several start-ups in Oregon, Florida and India. Raj truly enjoys working with and mentoring entrepreneurs. He is a founding charter member and a board member of The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) Portland chapter.
Raj is a thoughtful, detailed, and professional investor and his style creates tremendous benefits for his co-investors as well as for the entrepreneur. He often goes out of his way to provide detailed feedback to the entrepreneur on the idea even when he does not invest. I highly recommend Raj.

Prior to Seedfire he was the former COO at Gemstone Systems prior to their acquisition by VMWare and my former manager. His backgound in in-memory computing and analysis uniquely qualifies him as a key advisor.
