Sid & Joel's Notes
Sid & Joel
Curator of Portal
Ish is a high integrity individual that has worked on hard problems in the past. He was early to Nexus Mutual - a stable for DeFi's growth and is a pleasure to work with. I have interacted with his team a number of times and have always found them to be a pleasure to work with. This tech lead comes after a recent raise from Hashed, Animoca brands and a number of other well-known names. It will ideally be a front seat at a fast growing firm with substantial users on platform already.
