Eric Ong is the most impactful investor on our cap table. He'll take the time to deeply understand the ins and outs of your business which allows him to have the context to truly anticipate your needs as a founder. He's incredibly sharp and is our first call for advice. He's someone we can be fully transparent with, no matter if it's good or bad news. He's the type of VC that will roll up his sleeves to help you accelerate your business. He's very well connected and has made countless customer & partnership intros that have dramatically changed the trajectory of our business. In situations where he might not have an immediate 1st degree connection, he'll go out of his way to get intros through his 2nd degree network to ensure we get in touch with the right folks. This level of dedication means that he's never missed the thank you section of our investor update. Eric is stellar and is undoubtedly one of the rising stars in venture. If you have the chance to work with him, 100% do so.

Zach Aarons is one of the smartest investors in proptech / construction tech. He's incredibly helpful with intros and makes quick investment decisions. He is a tough negotiator when it comes to early stage fundraising, so keep that in mind (hence the reason for 9/10 recommendation). Though the quality of my interactions with him have been always stellar!

Alan has a treasure chest of startup knowledge that he can deploy at a moment's notice when you're in need of advice. He's the only investor in my captable (out of dozens, including my lead) who I trust completely.

Took a handful of meetings with Paul. He is educated and thoughtful. He committed to our round, signed paperwork, and engaged legal counsel. 4 hours before the close and wire deadline he sent an email saying he would no longer be investing. Bungled our entire close, churlish.

Mo is the type of investor who asks how YOU'RE doing first before how the company is doing. Because he understands the founders mental state is extremely important in such stressful times. After that, he listens to your current problems and tries to find people to intro you as soon as possible. Def a founder friendly investor. Lets you continue running your company with him being there to intro you to any other experts you may find of value.

Seemed excited during meeting, he and the rest of the team subsequently ghosted all correspondence (after we'd spoken several times with his associate). Will not be going back.

Astasia didn't seem super interested in our first call. She ended the meeting early with "I think I have everything I need" which felt weird. She then followed up a month later saying she really enjoyed the conversation and asked for a followup meeting. So far it has been sort of a weird experience.
