Met with TJ & others from Base 10 after a few preliminary calls w/ another member from the team. Unfortunately, they canceled/rescheduled multiple times last minute, were slow to reply to emails & when we finally did meet, were unprepared / seemingly disinterested. Some of the more junior members of the team were sharp & great to meet with - unfortunately, the experience we had left a bad taste. Maybe it was just an off few months - 2020 was weird.

Met with Chirag after he reached out cold himself - he was quick to respond, setup an initial meeting & was perhaps the most down-to-earth VC we've connected with. He continued to be responsive & agreeable to calls we requested as we've stayed in touch. Would recommend 10/10.

Ed came in hot and we immediately clicked - both regarding what we're building and personally. He's a big personality that gets it at many levels. Also, having spoken to hundreds of investors, he (and the rest of the Boldstart team) stands out as a caring and high quality person. We were fortunate to have Ed and Boldstart lead our round, and have been excited about the value they bring to the table.

During our seed round we spoke to hundreds of investors. Mike, regardless of whether he would have invested or not, would have stood out for the quality of human that shone through in our interactions. He's knowledgeable, direct, kind, and we couldn't have asked for a better partner to lead our round. I would absolutely recommend Mike and Resolute Ventures to other founders.

Srini has been a great partner and advisor and most every conversation is more focused on our success than on Intel Capital's success. In other words, he is very much a partner to the company and other investors...we are all in the boat together. He makes valuable introductions, stays current with our industry and brings new news and insight. Is clear about what's required for success and how he views a situation.

Allison leads marketing efforts for Playground Global and has assisted us in some key marketing efforts for our company (PR, positioning, brand, etc). She has been an invaluable addition to our marketing team and her expertise and resources (access to PR agency, etc) have allowed us to make a far greater impact than we would have on our own. Allison's role is a great example of VC value add that goes beyond pure financing in the service of making the portfolio company's as successful as possible. I consider her a key part of our extended team

Nitin is a straight shooter. He will tell you as it is about your idea. Unshacked overall and Nitin in particular invests in the founder first and the idea next and makes a great effort in helping the founder get through the maze of converting their idea into a viable business model. His thought process is all analytical with regards to customer acquisition and pricing which helps founders to come up with the right messaging to attract customers. You can always depend on him to take a call and give you his honest feedback.

Maria hustles! She made sure everyone was moving fast on closing the deal we were working on together. She was always on top of ops related things, and helped us tremendously along the way. After we closed the deal, she connected me with the right people and made sure all my questions were answered.
