Jyoti always struck me as a rare bird in Silicon Valley— someone who experienced tremendous success, yet was still incredibly humble. I didn’t think anyone else like him existed in the Valley and then I met John. John and Jyoti’s joint conviction that entrepreneurs deserve better and their determination to inject humanity back into the tech industry hooked me.
