5+ years in investment banking and VC and (presently) 5+ years of startup experience. Have started 2 advisory firms as well. Can provide perspective from all sides of the table on all non-coding matters.
Ahsan joined my finance team as a consultant for several months before going for his MBA in 2008 which speaks to his brainy-ness. Beyond that, his analysis, insights, and calm demeanor were invaluable as we raised our Round C funding. Ahsan has a wonderful dry wit which helped all of us keep our perspective during a very hechtic time in the company. Ahsan will be a huge asset to any group he joins.
I would hire him again in a heart beat!
It was a pleasure working with Ahsan at Credit Suisse. In investment banking the ability to generate superior results with a minimum level of guidance is very valued. Ahsan delivered on these traits and more - he is a quick learner, works well w/others and is generally a nice / fun guy.
One of the best business analyst I have worked with.
Ahsan helped us put together our business plan. He was critical to our fund raising activities. Without him, value of the company would have taken a negative hit.
