Anirudh has in my interactions with him come across as a person with deep knowledge of the consumer internet and new age businesses in which we share a common interest.
His skills and understanding of new business models involving social concepts , ability to generate eyeballs and customers using lean marketing methods are some of the aspects that i listen to keenly on those instances when we are interacting.
He has played a stellar role in the guidance and development of FInd Your Class and has helped the founder think thru some tough problems . The health of that company is a good indicator of his skills in this space.
Anirudh , will go a long way , and on his own steam. I wish him all the best!
