EVIDENCE

Hi Iskender, (...) By the way, I do remember you and your feedback very well. I have had hundreds of interactions with VCs and there are only four people I remember out of all them. You are one of them. I really appreciate the time you took to give me feedback, it gave me a whole new perspective on how you -professional investors- think. Some bits of the feedback were hard to read but necessary. Thank you.
