In the spirit of transparency, our investment thesis is linked here.
Process is dependent on check size and the questions we have about your business. Every company has unique risks and opportunities. Our role is to discover and then assess them. This can take varying amounts of time based on the risks at hand and our network or expertise in the category. Broadly, we may ask for "homework" (analysis of risks and opportunities), may invite you to speak to our network, may ask to speak to experts or customers in your network, may ask for a product demo, and will be interested in getting to know you and the team (potentially virtually.)

I've worked with Gyan since the early days of our Seed Round and invited him to be a board observer. Gyan was very helpful as we met the typical obstaclses start-ups encounter. I found him to be a great resource and I recommend him as a partner in all types of transactions. – Aaron Duerksen (Founder, Vizi Healthcare)
Gyan is one of the most active investors. He is insightful. He is very helpful and appropriately risk tolerant. He always asks the right questions. He is well connected and eager to make meaningful and valuable introductions in his network. – Jonathan Wright (Founder, Opya)
Gyan is an investor who hustles like a founder. He's always available when needed and spends significant time to understand challenges and suggest solutions. The level of detail he remembers about our company impresses me. Highly recommended! – Ashish Dua (Co-Founder, Glidian)
Gyan is one of our most active and helpful early investors. He digs deep to understand the business and helps think through strategy, operations and fundraising. He also made some great introductions to both service providers and investors. Definitely someone I would highly recommend any entrepreneur have on their side. – Fred Dijols (Co-Founder, Mix Lab)
Gyan is my go-to person for any information around startups and digital health. I have worked with him for nearly 4 years now and am always impressed by his willingness to help and intro to his vast network and also for challenging me at various points to continue to think through my approach. He genuinely wants you to succeed and the best part of working with Gyan: email him anytime during the day and expect to see a response within an hour! – Ajit Viswanathan (Founder, Doctible)
