Vivek Saraswat Ask Me Anything

Hi Liana!

Honestly? I like helping other people build things. As a materials engineer, I built solar cells that powered the infrastructure people used. As an product manager, I helped my team to build devops products that enterprises used to power their organizations. As a venture investor, I get to work with founders to help them build their companies. For a more in-depth answer, check out my post on my philosophy on Being a Servant Investor.
