Rohit Mathur

As the executive director of TiE Seattle, Rohit Mathur encounters plenty of cutting-edge startup ideas. Now, Mathur — who previously served as regional director for technology consulting company MindTree — is kicking around a new project of his own.

The startup is called YAssume, and for now Mathur is keeping things close to the vest. “We are still in alpha mode so keeping it a bit stealth for the moment,” Mathur tells GeekWire.

The company, with operations in Redmond and Hyderabad, India, has received commitments for $80,000 and is currently in the process of pulling in more.

YAssume has five test customers who are using the product, which is designed to help salespeople discover, qualify and connect with new prospects. There’s certainly a lot of competition in that arena, most notably CRM products such as and group collaboration tools like Jive Software.

But Mathur believes YAssume can fill a niche, helping sales people automate tasks and integrate with existing system.

The company was co-founded by Mathur and Akkiraju Bhattiprolu, a former senior manager for ADP India, earlier this year.

Including the two founders, the company has six full-time workers. Five of those workers are based out of Bhattiprolu’s house in Hyderabad, India. A public version of the service is set to debut this fall.
