Hi! I'm Hari Raghavan.
👋 About me
I love moving atoms and pennies with bits. I'm a loyalist to some people, some causes, and all dogs.
I love unblocking bottlenecks, anything that makes the world more efficient or less annoying. I love talking about / working on / investing in anything that can be described as an “API for X”.
My favorite things at work to talk about
Optimizing strategy at the intersection of Product x GTM, especially for complex businesses (data companies, marketplaces, fintech, or new categories)
Compensation approach (especially for tricky roles like founding team / execs)
Fundraising strategy — as both a founder at AbstractOps and active investor (out of Operator Fund), we see a lot of data on both sides of the table
My favorite things in life to talk about / do
How government / politics in the US is broken, and how one might fix it
Great wine or cocktail bars
Fantasy novels (huge Brandon Sanderson dork)
Good TV (I think I’ve seen ~150 shows)
