Everyone I have introduced Tak to has come back and thanked me profusely for the intro as he has helped them move their startup forward positively. I believe it is because he genuinely believes that a well connected ecosystem is the way forward for London to become a startup destination. And to that extent he himself is plugged into all the right startup networks in town.
I have seen how Tak works with the startups that he is mentoring, advising and investing in. He takes a deep dive into their progress and identifies the exact areas he can help with (which is a welcome relief from the some other mentors who tend to try to do everything and accomplish nothing).
Definitely an investor you want on your side as he definitely can make things happen and show you avenues that you probably didnt even realise existed. Great asset to the London startup scene.

Tak is one of the best business developers I've met with a talent for mentoring and finding the opportunities that matter. Had the pleasure to work with him multiple times at and outside of Techstars. You'd be lucky to have him around. He'll add outstanding value to whatever he works on.

I love Tak. My whole company loves Tak. When we were going through TechStars he was a brilliant advisor and a reliable confidant. He always knew how to put things into perspective, and he knew how to get others to ignore the noise, and focus on what matters.
To this day Tak remains one of my first calls when I need advice. No matter the circumstance, I want Tak in my foxhole.
