Two influencers in PDX startup community join RFPIO as advisors

RFPIO welcomes its newest advisors, Raghu Raghavan and Nitin Rai

Raghu Raghavan, Founder of Act-On Software, and Nitin Rai, Managing Director of Elevate Capital and President of TiE Oregon, will join the RFPIO team guiding the tech startup during the product’s first year in the market as advisors.

“RFPIO is solving a real problem in the proposal management process,” said Raghavan. “The product is superior, because it is designed with the user in mind, offering advanced capabilities that are easy for any company to adopt.”

With offices located in both Beaverton and Coimbatore, India, the RFPIO team is a living representation of the success that can happen cross-culturally. Being a minority-owned business, the company is changing the way people do business far beyond the RFP management software they have created.

“Elevate Capital strives to help early stage startups in the Pacific Northwest, with a strong focus on minority-owned businesses,” said Rai. “RFPIO not only met those requirements, they are delivering a valuable product that has a bright future.”

Raghavan and Rai will join RFPIO’s two other advisors, Bob Dunne of BFD Consulting and Jim Fowler of Owler, who are both well-respected influencers in the B2B software landscape.

“I am very pleased to bring these two seasoned entrepreneurs and investors to our advisory board,” said Ganesh Shankar, Co-Founder and CEO of RFPIO. “This new partnership brings a wealth of expertise to help guide RFPIO to greater success.”
