Jyoti Bansal — An Inspiration for Us All

Editor's note: 
Do not walk through time without leaving worthy evidence of your passage.

Last night, I had a chance to reflect on the exciting events of Harness’s latest fundraise. While Jyoti will be the first to tell you there are many miles to go, raising $80M+ at a $1.7BN valuation at this point in the journey for Harness is a truly remarkable accomplishment. One that was made possible through his immense vision, consistent perseverance, and fearless leadership.

Building startups is not a journey for the faint of heart. To build one iconic startup from the ground up is more work than most care to take on in a lifetime. I am grateful for a friend and co-founder who is inspired to do it not only once, but multiple times. We are all fortunate to have him as a Partner and leader for Unusual Ventures.

Congratulations to Jyoti, Rishi, and the entire Harness team on a meaningful milestone. The journey is just beginning, but we at Unusual are grateful to be your partners.

The quote above is taped to the inside of my closet and I think about it most mornings as I get ready for the day. Jyoti is an example for all of us at Team Unusual and entrepreneurs everywhere, and an inspiration for what is possible.
