Recommendations

I am the founder and CEO of SoleLife, a Techstars portfolio company. Being a member of the Techstars network and having gone through the Accelerator program, I can say with the utmost confidence and enthusiasm, ImpactKarma is a perfect fit for this accelerator. The team is passionate, driven, focused, and on a mission to create massive impact. Jayant is a much admired investor, serial entrepreneur and he is truly a delight to work with - Jayant and the entire team has a hunger for knowledge and without a doubt, the team will absolutely thrive during Mentor Madness and throughout program. I am excited for Impactkarma and to follow their great success!

ImpactKarma is a fantastic idea at exactly the right time. As Gen Z focuses on putting their money where their values are, ImpactKarma gives them the ability to do just that. Jayant and Kedar are well positioned to grow this concept into a thriving business and are already taking the steps needed to effectively launch both sides of the marketplace.

This idea is particularly interesting in its ability to deeply connect companies with their younger employees and customers.

Jayant and team 2 ImpactKarma are a passionate, humble and focused group. Jayant is a seasoned angle investor, with both a strong financial savvy and grasp on long term vision.

They have a hunger and energy they bring to ImpactKarma is immediately palatable and they've done a great job of recruiting support and resources for their vision.

Having just exited my own start-up, what attracted me most to ImpactKarma is that the product speaks directly to (and helps fulfill) the consumers' own identity, aspirations, values, and sense of self. This is raw potential to build fanatical love in a wide audience is perhaps the the most viscerally compelling and exciting part of ImpactKarma.

I am a partner at Cofounders Capital, a VC fund focused on seed stage B2B software companies. I'm also a Techstars mentor. I have been advising Jayant and the ImpactKarma team for the past year, and have known Jayant through the entrepreneurial community for several years. I can confidently say that ImpactKarma is at an ideal inflection point and filled with a coachable team that will make them the perfect fit for this accelerator.
The Company already has customer traction in a very attractive, fast-growing space. However, they are still early enough where the mentor madness aspect of Techstars will be extremely impactful to hone the offering.
Jayant is, without question, a venture-backable entrepreneur that I thoroughly enjoy working with. Cofounders Capital is interested in following ImpactKarma's progress and will be advising them anytime they need it!
