“We think of Paul as our secret weapon. From the second he invested in our Series B, he came into the trenches to offer all kinds of support. He identified places the Canvas team could help out (e.g. customer acquisition channels and techniques); he worked with us on future fundraising rounds; and he plays a key leadership role on our board. And on the product side, Paul really shines. He has helped us think about how to best prioritize the right expansions that will have shown the biggest impact on both our users and the company and for that we are eternally grateful.”
