Alan is harmful. If I could turn back time, I would have never gotten in business with him. That's my biggest regret.

One of the most valuable investors on our cap table - Terrence brings out the best of your team and company. He calls people up before formal introductions to get them excited about your company, and strikes the perfect balance between identifying the je-ne-sais-quoi of what makes a product special and analyzing the fundamentals of your business via metrics. I cannot recommend him more as a trusted partner and investor.

I have left every meeting with a positive experience. Seema is super transparent about her process and has been proactive about building a relationship even outside of a fundraising cycle. She's super in tune with the current market, super helpful in fintech.

Shuo was such a pleasure to speak to. Every meeting we had got us more excited about the possibility of working with them. Fifty Years definitely invests in deep tech companies, I think in general they don't understand the medical device industry as well as biotech so they are more hesitant with those companies.

Danielle at 1517 Fund was a pleasure to speak to. She was encouraging throughout the process and always had an optimistic mindset. In the end, the fund is more focused on quicker to market solutions vs. deep tech.

John Capodilupo has been one of the best investors in the company. He provides advice and guidance as a fellow founder on how best to build the company. He is understanding through the challenges and extremely encouraging when we need it. I highly recommend Accomplice and John Capodilupo.

J2 is a new VC. Both Alex & Jon are two very driven individuals passionate about being VCs. They are however inexperienced as VCs and are a bit all over the place, making lots of big claims but not delivering. They also are not 100% transparent and do ask for advisory shares on top of their investment once they have invested.

Highly recommended. He and his partner are the most helpful investors we've ever met with. They think deeply about what you're working on and offer really excellent advice. We have not yet tried to raise from them, so can't speak to that part of the process, but they have been very additive so far.

Jocelyn is an engaged, respectful VC. She works hard to understand your product and business. Her advice is helpful, as is her teams. She gets you a clear, helpful answer very quickly.
