So this is less of an investor review but more of a 'how does he have time to run his company when all he does is tweet all day???' Someone please answer. EOM.

Probably one of the hardest-working people I've ever met in VC. Extremely diligent, and very reliable. All-around great cheerleader and thought partner. Huge fan of him -- he's going to be very successful one day.

Do not take money from this person, no matter how few options you have. You will, undoubtedly, regret it. Inexperienced, volatile, and untruthful.

Serik and Elefund are fantastic. They made intros to other good investors when we were fundraising, and helped a lot after we were done fundraising. Serik is clearly aligned with his founders and is one of the few investors who I felt "gets it." Nate (cofounder of Robinhood) is a GP at Elefund and is also amazing. (You get access to him as a portfolio company). He is a great coach, set us up well with lawyers/agencies/other support, and is fun to work with.

I've known Vishal for several years and we ended up raising money from him and his firm as participants in our seed round. They were always available and made time to talk through strategic issues as we worked on our growth plan and continued to refine the product. Vishal would on occasion loop in other partners of his too when he thought they could be helpful - it definitely felt like we could access the whole partnership if we needed to. That seemed like a differentiator for them and it was important b/c their roster of investors have a pretty incredible network. Generally, I'd say they knew our space, made customer intros, and were sharp on fundraising strategy (though we haven't yet pursued our Series A) and I'd take money from them again.

Charles is a savvy investor who has built a very strong reputation for himself and his founders. He's incredibly ethical, thoughtful and smart. The hardest part about working with Charles is getting his time and attention given the size of his portfolio. I wish he had more time to share so his founders could benefit from his help more.

I've known Danielle frm her days building Thiel Fellowship (9+ years) and every interaction I've had with her has always been warm and plessant. We didn't raise a round from them but the community they've built both the Thiel Summit group (when it lasted; it was a sad day when it got shut down) and the 1517 group (now) are amazing resources all around. They have a focus on non traditional founders (people who didn't go to college in particular) and as a non traditional founder myself, they made me feel completely welcome regardless of where I came from. This was also at a time when all my interactions with people from silicon valley had a "too bad you're not here" undertone. If your story is in line with the 1517 Thesis, I recommend you have a chat with them even if you do nothing more than that. I have never seen someone be a resource for the earliest stages of starting up so consistently.

Nabeel is a previous operator with a lot of entrepreneurial experience. He is straightforward in his feedback and has an ability to provide new perspectives. Nabeel is able to anchor an extreme idea in such a way that it forces me to consider the problem in a new way, even if I would never actually move to that extreme. His network is valuable and he is willing to dig in on everything from product to people issues if I need help. He has a super power for storytelling and creating a compelling narrative for your deck.

ND & Mr. Moessinger are thoughtful, reasonable & attentive without being arrogant, dogmatic, or temperamental. Clear communication made interactions productive even when discussing complicated technical or otherwise difficult issues.

20/10. How do I put her on the top of this board? Literally the most no BS investor I've ever met. Very Asian tiger mom, in the best of ways. Sarcastic & dry sense of humor, but very caring. Practical, rational. Incredible investor, and even more incredible as someone who supports her co's. Even better friend. Must have for future of work/enterprise/AI/logistics founders.
