My superpower is… reading minds.
One of my productivity hacks is… working on more than I can possibly manage.
If I am not an entrepreneur, I will be… a stand-up comedian with jokes that are far too intellectual.
For me success is… generating a sustainable impact above and beyond your organization.
I dream of… AI that we don’t have to be afraid of.
The problem which LogSentinel is tackling is… malicious actors trying to get access to your data and exploit it to their advantage.
The UVP (Unique Value Proposition) of our product is… using advanced blockchain and AI to stop data breaches for good.
The hardest part of building a startup is… keeping the team positive through the ups and downs, and learning to enjoy the ride.
I learned the hard way that… less is more – we need to give less but clearer and more targeted options for our customers.
We believe in our success, because… we help organizations keep their most critical digital assets safe in an era of increasing risks.
