QUESTIONS TO PREPARE FOR // PROMOD & JOSH INTERVIEW

  • Promod, can you share with us your journey to become a venture capitalist? (the almost pastor story…). At what point did you realize that God could use you significantly as an investor?
  • You’ve seen a lot over the years as a VC. How have your Christian values served you and the entrepreneurs you work with? Have their been many tensions with your faith, your partners, and so much capital on the line?
  • Many investors in Silicon Valley might hide their faith, but you’ve used your platform as a successful investor to talk quite openly. Can you share about how you made that decision to have a public faith, and how that has worked out?
  • What advice might you have in that regard as students go out into the workplace?
  • Generosity has been a major part of your life story. Could you share how God directed you on this topic, and how this has allowed you to make entrepreneurship a path for many others? (Opportunity International, etc)?
