“Bijan was incredibly supportive in the APOLLO journey. We accessed his expertise in our early stages to evaluate strategic planning and talent acquisition before we were ready for a full time CTO. He brought the ‘been there done that’ confidence we needed to execute and I appreciate his professionalism and positive personality. Bijan would be an asset to support any startup or growth phase company.”
