The one thing that comes to mind is Ali normally feels 'guilty' about how much she is helping you — she's super hard on herself that she's not being more helpful. I can't say enough good things about her, just available 24/7. Wanting to help founders from day 1, and her background and experience is insane.

Cory is phenomenal. He is the most responsive of any of our 20+ pre-seed/seed investors. He's an operator by nature and that makes his feedback and perspective much more valuable than career-VCs. He is one of the rare investors that actually has strong product intuition. He catalyzed our most recent fundraise - it wouldn't have happened without him. For technical builders early in their journey, I will always point them to Cory.

John runs the Seattle Angel Conference. It is an annual "fund" where newly minted angel investors are supposed to learn the angel investing process. John can be a gruff guy, but he means well. The trouble is the Fund itself. It is unpredictable, disorganized, and there is zero ability for the entrepreneur to know if they are a fit for the fund because there is not a consistent thesis. They run a pitch competition of all of the companies as their means to determine who to fund. They also require a $100 application fee. This means that a company can apply multiple years in a row with wildly different results. John does not manage this mess well, which is unfortunate for the companies paying to play. One on one John knows his stuff and is willing to make introductions, but when he convinces you to do the fund competition, it sours the impression, quite often. The fund may be good for new angels and it has value there, but now that they have opened it virtually to companies from all over, it has made it a bigger circus with less value to the Seattle local companies than before. Only the most connected companies stand a chance because a large part of the pitch competition is a popularity contest to get angels to support you.

I only had one conversation with Jon after he reached out, but he seemed like a nice guy and I have nothing negative to say about him. He just moved to Mucker from a previous fund, interested to see the relationship develop.

Has an impressive list of investments. Was nice to talk to. Didn't offer that much insight into overall business, he's more of a hands off investor type.

Though Claire passed on my company, I've found our conversations to be extremely valuable. She's very bright with an impressive ability to quickly pull out key insights (risks, upsides, likely challenges) of a business, and ask the right questions. I appreciated that she was transparent we weren't a fit in our first meeting (and super nice about it as well) - loved that she was sensitive to wasting founders' time. Even after the pass, she's been super helpful in providing other intros using the robust network she's built. Generally a really likable person - great sense of humor, straightforward, humble and authentic. Would strongly recommend to other founders (and have!).

Quentin is humble, down to earth and a past successful technical leader. Most investors do not have operating experience and in result are not as helpful since they do not understand what founders need to handle day to day. Quentin has a lot of experience leading teams operationally etc. and can provide plenty of advice. He tries to be helpful wherever possible and is incredibly pleasant to work with compared to many investors.

James is very smart and made a strong effort to learn the subject matter on his own time. He is an extremely tough negotiator. Hopefully he is negotiating on your behalf.

No one talks about how Dan is one of the enterprise SaaS greats in the investing world. He spots great B2B SaaS companies from miles away and is willing to work with you day 1 even when no one else is there. Super versatile, and is responsive whenever you need him.
