Brainstorm with Better

Brainstorm is our personalized advice program where we work with early stage founders to help them unlock the true potential of their ideas and help to evolve them into truly “investible” companies. We are very selective but want to talk to every gritty founder who is solving a hard problem. If you are looking for a conviction-driven investor mentor, please talk to us about Brainstorm today.

"Vaibhav has been extremely helpful & supportive right from the start, when we had little more than an idea and a prototype. He was one of the few people who could see the big picture, & made relevant introductions with data science leaders in India & Silicon Valley. This helped us validate our hypotheses & define our direction. Vaibhav also helped us closely with every step of the fundraising process: deciding how much to raise, finding the right investors, finding the right partners for accounting & legal paperwork & much more. Apart from being an investor, we’re really lucky to have Vaibhav as a friend, mentor & advisor.

"Vaibhav has been an ideal early investor for us. As a product person himself, he has been our goto guy to help us with goto market and product market fit strategies. He understands board dynamics (with VCs) very well and advices founders keeping both sides in mind. He gives honest & blunt feedback which I personally think is very important for founders to hear in early days.

"Vaibhav has been one of our very early backers. He did his research before taking our meeting and knew the questions he wanted to ask us. He heard us out, asked his questions, he allowed us to speak and made a commitment of participating in our round during the first meeting itself. Post that he went on and gave us very strong introductions to other investors and built conviction amongst them as well. From what we have seen, if Vaibhav likes a company, he will be a strong backer who gives the right introductions to people who will invest. He has a strong network, which he uses wisely.

“Vaibhav was introduced to me by one of my trusted friends a few months ago, we later discovered so many common connections. He is one of the few seed stage investors in India who can see the big picture and able to ask the right question to judge the potential of the team. He helped me with my seed stage funding where he exceeded the funding goal by 140% in a matter for 5 days. If you have a crazy dream, determination to chase it and can build the right team to execute, I strongly recommend talking to him to help with your funding.”
