I've had a lot of interactions with investors and there's probably just a few that have turned sour or negative. Jude seemed to have a good rep (positive reviews on yc bookface), but while the call started out nice, he started to ask very probing questions, such as how much of round filled and who else was investing. When we didn't answer these questions well (we were early in our process) he proceeded to berate us saying that we would never get our round done. I didn't walk away from this interaction feeling like Jude was a good or nice guy.

Extremely rude during our meeting. He acted like he didn’t want to be there from the minute we began and actually interrupted not even 3 minutes in to say he hated the idea. I’m all for direct and to the point meetings but this was abrasive, condescending and gave me the sense that he shouldn’t have taken the meeting in the first place. I‘ve pitched 100+ investors and this was one of the worst meetings I have had.

Predatory VC! Deliberately extended timeline for investment to burn runway. After signed term sheet and two rounds of redlines on the deal docs and a board seat, he came back demanding individual veto rights (as a person not a share class) on hiring/firing executive team, financials, etc. Malicious intent!

Very impressed by her depth of knowledge and style of thinking. She was able to bring clarity to a lot of half-baked ideas.

Veronica originally requested to meet with me, but everything I tried to schedule a call she was on vacation or unavailable. When I followed up after her vacation, she continued to ghost me and never returned any of my messages.

Would not recommend. Does not take calls as a rule, so you have to email your thoughts and he will ping you whatever he can reply as 1 liners. Pushes for his own terms. Will not do what is right for the company and moment things were not going so well, totally ghosted and did not step in to help.

Known Pete for years. He personally invested in my latest company. He works his ass off. I have only met very few investors who follow through every-time on what they say they are going to-do. Ridiculous introduction to dream customer proposed...in my inbox the next am. Says he has a friend who'd make a great engineering hire...i got a text intro hours later. I've had other investors and board members where it is like pulling teeth to just get them to-do what they say they will, not the case here. He's been great. I try to put him in touch with anyone in my network looking for funding, advice, just someone to chat with.

You will rarely find someone who's this well-versed in enterprise SaaS, especially since he's done it himself. We learned so much from our first meeting with him, but his uppity demeanor was a really big turn off. Seems too stuck up to actually help founders
