I'm writing to recommend Yash Mantri, CEO of Infocrest. Our company had developed next generation, multifactor authentication (MFA) software that integrates biometric security solutions across multiple platforms. It operates over PC’s, laptops, tablets, and smartphones replacing tokens, dongles and other such devices to provide high-end security. We are having offices in Singapore, London and Malaysia. I've been working with him and his team for the past four months where his team is helping with feasibility study and financial modelling to present to investors, for raising Series a round of funds of $3M and acquiring three smaller companies. In the time I've known him, Yash is consistently been a strong team player and his team is extremely professional and analytical. They have also helped me in finding loop holes in my accounting system, which was beneficial to operations of my company.
