During this week’s roundtable, Shaul Weisband, Co-Founder and CMO of Jifiti, shared his journey with our audience. Shaul talked about the pivot that his company made early on and its impact on the investors.

You can listen to the recording of this roundtable here:


As for the pitches, Nataraj Pinakapani from Chennai, Inida, pitched Tecruitr, an AI-driven resume shortlisting and hiring concept. The AI, however, doesn’t work yet. We discussed strategies of how to bridge the runway gap.


Next, Sunal Jain from Bangalore, India, pitched Campture, a travel planning app. The business model based on affiliate commissions requires working individually with a large number of tour operators. Very lengthy, time-consuming process.


Then Ranjan Baisak, also from Bangalore, India, pitched Appiva, a concept for helping the merchants in India’s unorganized retail sector. This business will be very slow adoption, and very hard to turn profitable.

As always, I would very much like to hear about your business, so let me invite you to come and pitch at one of our free 1M/1M public roundtables. We will be holding future roundtables at 8 a.m. PST on:
