I have known Shantanu for over 25 years – and in all those years, SB was always the maverick, blazing his own path, setting his own pace. To a large extent, I owe my plunge into entrepreneurship to his encouragement, and the journey since then to his support and guidance. He drives you hard, pushes you to not settle, but is always there when you need him – qualities which I would search for in an investor any day.
