"Early stage interventions go a long way in strengthening the building blocks of a start up so that it evolves and blossoms into a successful business. Towards that, Sanjay and 100x are doing seminal work in creating the foundations of a throbbing start up ecosystem. They have pioneered a few innovative concepts like the iSAFE notes which facilitates capital raise without the burden of an elaborate SHA/SSA in the formative stages of the company. I have seen 100xVC make rapid progress in their successive cohorts which augurs well for the entire ecosystem. My compliments to Sanjay and team"
