I am wondering, how many of these IPO will stand after 5 years.
Proud of my good friend and founder Umesh Maheshwari, they started with a moonshot idea in 2007 and now filing an IPO, visiting their office and seeing their exponential growth and vision I knew they’d have a huge product. I’ve advised them to switch to all flash to stay competive and he founders are very receptive to trends I expect huge long term growth.
