Super positive experience with Nico. Even if he turned down investing in my project (he is not perfect😉 ), he invested a lot of time in my success (post rejection). From providing feedback, advise and his network, he became an incredible help for me. Even if my VC network grew in the last couple of years, Nico will be always my first choice because his value goes way beyond the money he can invest.

Nic has been around for years and it shows. Great perspective. Can be abrasive at times but he is well aware of this and good humoured when called on it!

I’m a huge fan of Backstage, and Christie lived up to expectations. Thorough, thoughtful, empathetic. She answered all of my questions and asked good ones about our venture. Definitely recommend, especially if you’re a woman founder!

Josh Buckley is one of the best investors in SV today and making waves! We took a check from Josh 8 months ago and could not have been happier about our decision. Josh is the perfect amount of hands on and hands off. He knows when he is truly being helpful because he is a recent founder and current CEO himself! You should take his check. 10/10

Mo and the firm made a quick decision. They communicated well along the way, and since writing the check, have offered several customer and partnership introductions on their own accord. Thankful to have them as part of the team!

Murph is as founder-friendly of an investor as it gets. He is excited about big visions but also helps ground his companies and tactfully brings up prospects of getting acquired. If you need a bridge round, he will be the first to step up. Only flag is the team around him runs a somewhat haphazard diligence process and creates noise.

He's an absolute maverick. He has old guard knowledge with a new guard vibe. He knows things that other people don't know. He invests with conviction and doesn't optimize for external validation. Sticks to his ethos and very much appreciated that he sticks to his values.

Hustler, super willing to help every step of the way. I've had a very pleasant experience with him, though I've heard some contrasting stories about how he ghosts/isn't the most helpful from close friends.

Alexis was our first institutional investor while at Initialized. From day 1, he's simply had our backs. From candidate hiring and closing, to customer intros, to navigating tough times, he's been a bastion of calm competence and always incredibly supportive. For instance, 6 months after he invested, a co-founder left the company. At the time, it was a super heavy blow. Five minutes after emailing our investors with the news, Alexis called me and simply asked, "How are you doing and can I do anything to help?" There are dozens of other examples like this. Couldn't recommend him more highly.
