Turner committed to our round before we had a lead. Our conversations and diligence process really helped focus my thinking. He has been one of the highest ROI investors on the cap table and is always very responsive. I always recommend founders to try to get Turner on their cap table.

Joe is an absolute force of nature on our cap table. He responds to emails within minutes. He makes high-quality introductions for us on a weekly basis. He has deep conviction in what we're building and reinforces our enthusiasm while also clearly laying out his concerns and constructive feedback. We're lucky to work with someone who cares as much as about his work and his founders as Joe.

Josh was one of the first investors to have conviction in our company. I wouldn't have been able to get my recent round done without him. His introductions and advice during fundraising have been instrumental. If you're lucky to have him on your cap table, be prepared to get introduced to a ton of amazing people from his network.

Erik has been there with us since the start, supporting, making intros and welcoming us into both the Village Global and On Deck communities. He has an incredibly strong network, and is always available when we need help from him.

Terrence is historically very low-key and very low publicity, but IMO one of the most underrated investors. He is the most founder friendly investor I've ever met.

I haven't been impressed with Antler as a VC firm. They haven't been super helpful even though they take a program fee. I would avoid them if you can. The only benefit they bring is for future fundraising. If you are looking for any other support, don't count on Antler. This is generally the sentiment that we have heard from other founders who received funding too.

We applied to the Northwestern Mutual Black Founder Accelerator, Precious was great getting to know and pitch. She has humble beginnings and brings that perspective to hearing new ideas. Since this was going to be a virtual cohort it was very competitive and I've been at this long enough to know that pre revenue startups are hard to get placement in these types of opportunities. All I can say is that she followed up like I had won and we continue to include her on our monthly updates.

Disappointing experience. Roy gives off the impression that he's opinionated and thoughtful, but the feedback he gave us contradict each other, and he didn't bother filling the gaps of his knowledge in verticals that fits Bloomberg Beta's thesis, and are ones he know less about. One of the least enjoyable experiences I've had.
