Jai was an early investor in MuleSoft and invaluable as a steady, positive force as we navigated the ups and downs of a high growth startup. Jai has a broad perspective and deep insights, as well as exceptional relationships which were invaluable in fundraising, partnering and recruiting initiatives. Most important, Jai is a good human, who I could trust to always have the best interest of MuleSoft at heart.
