Ravi Mohan has focused his entire career on the software business. Prior to co-founding Shasta, Ravi was a general partner at Battery Ventures, where he led eight investments and served on the boards of 12 software and technology-enabled service companies. Before that, Ravi built transaction-processing systems at Accenture, sold and implemented software applications for Hyperion Software Corp. and ran MIC, a software development firm based in India focused on selling business-intelligence solutions to multinational corporations. Ravi also spent time at McKinsey & Co. working with consumer- packaged goods companies.
Ravi really wants to be helpful. He immerses himself in our world. I've just always appreciated his approach. It truly feels like he's part of the team, not just a member of the board. It's been such a refreshing change from the typical VC.
