Chaim Freidman – Founding Partner, LionBird shed light on Sandeep’s inherent qualities “The impressions of him being super analytical, and a real straight shooter, I felt that if it’s good enough for him, it’s good enough for us. That’s how I and my brother decided to do back him in the first ShopClues and again in Droom.”
Vishesh Tandon – Dynamic Entrepreneur and Sandeep’s Childhood Friend said “Sandeep, the name for me, he’s a fighter.

Viren Rana – Serial Entrepreneur and Passionate Investor shared his thoughts about Sandeep “He is very aspirational and trustworthy. When Sandeep had the case, I knew it was just him at the wrong place and wrong time. I have 100 percent trust in Sandeep. A friend advised me against investing in Droom and yet I invested a certain amount of money. Later I went for lunch with Sandeep and by the end of lunch, I had doubled my investment. Three weeks later, I had tripled my investment just because of seeing his commitment and how he solves every problem fundamentally.”
