  1. @AnkurSingla I thought I did, but on looking up I am not to find ur visiting card. Had it for your previous venture ‘Karoza’ I m not sure if I have said the name right.

    Anyways, if u can then share any of ur contact details.

  2. Sure – please do feel free to reach out to me. I would be very happy to discuss. You’ll have my contact details I’m guessing.

  3. @AnkurSingla

    Dear Ankur, I would be happy to speak to you about this, I have spoken to you before also and know how good are you at SHAs.

    But before being very confident you should consider finding out more details too. Shall connect you with the 2 alumni startup founders that I know who are in pain because of this in a separate email to you.

  4. ABC – you are on drugs. I’m a part of their portfolio and there is no such clause. In fact the term sheet they send is the most entrepreneur friendly doc you’ll see (trust me, I was a corporate lawyer before turning entrepreneur).

    You can call me or email me if you want and I can even explain the details.

    Please don’t do a disservice to the nascent startup ecosystem by talking crap.

    With love,


    Founder @ Akosha

  5. These morpheus guys are thieves. They put a clause in a terms sheet where they equity they have taken will never get diluted. Which basically means no matter how much capital a company is able to bring in their equity percentage will basically remain absolute and would not get liquidated.

    Hate these guys like anything, and strongly suggest to people who are applying there to speak to alumni companies about this.
