Chief Operating Officer

It's a pleasure working with John, Jyoti and the Unusual Team. The founder-first nature of Unusual and platforms like GAP are invaluable to early stage companies and first time founders. The team went beyond my expectations in being helpful and supportive!

My first meeting with Unusual was the one VC meeting that caused me to think critically about my business and go-to-market strategy. I realized that Unusual could not only help me de-risk my business, but also guide me to navigate new challenges.

I would 100% recommend Unusual. Our experience has been entirely positive. We appreciated the quick and no-BS process when agreeing on our seed investment and the support by the whole team over the months that followed.
