Vinod is very responsive, quick to make decisions, and valuable in building your company. However, he will take advantage of situations to the detriment of others on cap table including founders and other investors. He was a large enough investor that other investors were reluctant to come into the round. I would recommend having him on your cap table, but not being in a position where he has significant leverage (ie largest ownership stake or majority voting control).

I first contacted Niko through a blind message (on LinkedIn, as I recall) and he was very open to learning more. His firm didn't invest, but he was always pleasant. I later re-approached him, once my company had made more progress, and he was responsive and pleasant as usual.

Josh passed on us rather quickly, but he has been a great soundboard over the past few months. Was super transparent with us from the get go. I am actually most amazed by his willingness to respond to any question in a timely fashion. Despite being young, he seems respected by his peers. Ambitious and a hustler, he will make for a good investor for years to come.

Jess made a bet on New York and enterprise tech long before it was clear when Boston was still the biggest game on the east coast. She works incredibly hard, always puts founders and founding teams first, and Work-Bench punches way above their weight (or AUM) when it comes to customer introductions, corporate engagement, and recruiting assists.

Amanda has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Extremely helpful, lots of great feedback, and asks lots of questions we frankly should've been asking ourselves already.

Cyril is the dark night of startup seed rounds in SF. He's not flashy and doesn't do the fake twitter beef thing (which seems to be very on-brand for many other investors), but holy s*** does cyril know everyone. Even rounds of funding later, I still email cyril for intros. He's the dumbledore of seed-stage startups.

The bad cop to Eric Bahn's good cop. Very no BS, asks the hard questions, though not in a mean way. Just very rational and practical.
