Simon is a great resource to have in your network. He's unique in that he understands the government ecosystem as well commercial industry needs. In my experience he was a supportive, honest, helpful and "well behaved" board member. I'd recommend him and In-Q-Tel to anyone interested in the US government / defense / intelligence community markets.

If you are doing anything in the commerce or b2b SaaS space FIND HIM and get him to invest. He blew up my inbox with introductions to people he knew very well who actually all had real intentions of buying a product in my category - I didn't believe it at first when he said he spent 4 years thinking about my product and category but he clearly did, and talked to all the big buyers, knew where we'd face friction and had a stable of folks ready to help. Before he even asked about investing he probably added $5M in ARR to my business. He proceeded to show up wildly over prepared to every board or informal meeting, and pushed us to execute at a higher level. Im thankful we had him.

Aneel made several intros for us, and has been very helpful overall. I don't view him as a VC to call when you need to figure out strategy. Instead, he has a massive network, including a lot of high networth individuals, celebs, VCs, etc.

Fern is the best investor any startup founder could wish for. She is incredibly smart, well-connected, and always willing to help. And when she leans in, she goes all in. She's the most generous investor we have on the cap table with her introductions and with her time. On many nights and weekends, she texted and emailed with insightful feedback and ideas to take our startup to the next level. I feel like she's thinking for us all the time.

If you need a strong early stage fund, Alex's first fund is a great addition to your round. He has been extremely helpful in both his expertise in building robust financial models for SaaS businesses and relevant relationships from his extensive network. His time in SF and at NEA/Morgan Stanley make him unusually positioned to open doors to Israeli companies in the US. He is very much an American VC in Israel with the benefits that come with it. He proves his worth from the first meeting and I trust his position and directness as a thought partner building an enterprise startup.

John is very approachable and helpful with his feedback. He knows a plethora of edu-tech companies and often leads with references of what & how other startups are building, learnings of which can be applied in new products. You can connect with him on either Linkedin or Twitter DM, he will respond. No intros needed.

David and I met a few times during our seed fundraise. I really enjoyed our conversations, even if we didn't end up raising from them.

Alex is responsive, knowledgeable, and has been a great resource to our startup. We pitched to Inflection after realizing that both his fund and our company are philosophically aligned. After a couple meetings, Alex and team decided to invest in our pre-seed round. Since then, Alex has been very helpful in advising on strategy and meets with me on a regular basis. He's always responsive and goes above and beyond what I'd expect from a pre-seed/seed investor.
