He is a cancer on our business. He constantly is causing drama among our investors. He requests an immense amount of busy work from my team because he refuses todo any work himself. If you are talking to his firm, do yourself a favor and stop. My biggest mistake is working with Steve.

-- Jens is by far the best (and smartest) investor I have ever worked with (I have raised over $60M with over 15 investors in the past 5 years in my previous venture). -- Jens is responsive. Makes intros to brilliant founders in his portfolio companies that have been incredibly helpful. -- Jens understands the market you're in, the product you're building and the customer you're targeting (even though his fund is industry agnostic!). He's the most experienced and hands on investor (in a really good way) that I've ever worked with. -- Jens is well read, and is able to help with research/books/articles or personal anecdotes on the problems you deal with. -- Most importantly: Jens is a founder. He knows the struggle. -- I cannot recommend Jens more to any founder at pre-seed or seed stage. Jens' focus is getting you from pre/seed to Series-A with bi-weekly calls (and chats in between). He's been instrumental in getting us there in every way.

1. Does not care about founders, their opinion as a founding team or their interests in financing rounds, secondaries, strategic decisions, key hiring decisions. 2. Have experienced jealousy from my and other teammates financial successes. Voted against secondaries because "I couldn't afford XXX when I was your age, so you don't need that either" 3. His view is focused on "is this a great market." Does not evaluate founders deeply and therefore has little connection to them. 4. He is generally very responsive, helps makes intros to hires (even though we have never hired anyone he recommended due to poor quality) and makes investor intros (which have helped). 5. I would not work with him as he adds no value other than having a big fund behind him, no knowledge of what we do (nor an interest to learn), no perspective on unit economics, revenue figures, growth strategy. All he cares about is returns without thinking how to get there. Not recommended.

Lainy has been one of the most value-add VC’s I’ve worked with. She brings much more than capital to the table. She is there for the little bumps along the road but is also invaluable when it comes to strategic decisions, executive introductions, and so much more. Lainy is forthcoming and gets directly to the point. She does not impose herself on her portfolio companies but always picks up the phone when her input is wanted. In short, she is everything a founder could ask for in a VC partner.

Jai really cares about the founders he meets and is always open to connecting with other founders, VCs, or other industry members. We've had plenty of discussions about various aerospace industries, in which he's offered valuable insights, not only from the financial / fundraising perspective, but also the technology angle. I would highly recommend working with Jai since he's an upstanding character and wants to treat people he works with with respect and decency.

Geoff is incredibly supportive and has a vast network for portfolio help. His character truly shines when things are tough and our team needed the most help

Anne is literally amazing. She doesn't care who else is in the round and will be the first check in. Badass investor to have on your cap table.

Delian has a fairly polarizing personality and is fairly 'meme-y'. With that said, for the founders he works with he will move mountains. He has punched well above his weight for our team over the years. 10/10 would recommend working with him again.

Marshall is young but very hungry. Will grind super hard to help the founders he talks to. Only wish is that he was more available!
