John is great to work with and he's extremely strong with B2B GTM. Separately, there are few VCs that are as intentional about their LPs as Unusual

Judy is a relatively disengaged investor with an over-inflated sense of her own abilities and network. She is not a particularly good listener. Can be loyal to her winners, though.

Stay away from Jennifer and this firm at all costs. They would make promises and then ghost. They are total time wasters and rarely follow through. Your time is better spent with sincere, hard working VCs who care about founders.

Sarah and the team at Amplify are a delight to work with, and eager to help and build relationships, well before you're actively raising, or even have a company. Sarah has provided many useful intros, and great advice, even though we haven't taken any money from them (yet - my company is still early).

I've met Joanne a few times over the years, and found her to be one of the few people in the industry who actually care. The first time I met her, my startup was struggling. She was simultaneously incisive and quickly realized the problems we were having (which prevented her from investing), but also caring and was kind with her time in trying to help. We kept in touch over the years, and every time I've spoken with her, I felt like I learned something valuable and also like she saw me as an actual human and not just a company with a dollar sign in front of it.

Has a niche in supply chain/logistics and this seems to allow him to have a holier-than-thou attitude. During the pitch he's quite negative and condescending (pitched him twice). After the pitch he and his team seem to lack conviction. I'm not sure what value he/his firm would be able to give post-investment but I imagine it wouldn't amount to much besides a check and a few intros. I'd only ever recommend speaking/pitching him if you have an extremely-focused supply chain/logistics business—or just pitch him for practice. I recommend you just speak to Dynamo instead and prioritize them over Schematic. Much more of a human connection to be found there, even if they pass as well!

Ashmeet is A+ investor. He did not invest in our company but my experience with him has been terrific. Entrepreneurship is hard and one thing an investor can do to make it less hard by giving the qualified and timely feedback. Ashmeet does that. Inspite of not investing in us, he has been very kind to introduce to other investors/industry people.

Look, none of us are here to pat each other on the back and dance around soft letdowns. Delian understands what his job is (and what it isn't), knows where to be fast and efficient, and doesn't waste time- his, or yours. He's lightning quick on email responses, totally throws himself into your world, made time to visit in-person as fast as possible, and asks the hard questions to (quickly) get a sense of what it's like to walk in your shoes. Every interaction with him (and Keith) was to-the-point, efficient, energizing, and blunt; if your baby is ugly, he'll do you a favor and tell you. He wrote us a thoughtful pass note (more than "not a fit at this time"), offered to continue to give advice until we could be in a more relevant stage to FF in the future, and it was obvious he backs his quick action up with lots of thought. If you want to push yourself, Delian has high expectations. If intensity is uncomfortable, then don't waste your time.

Lisette was great to pitch to. Her questions were very thoughtful and I could tell she was rooting for us, gathering as much information as possible to present to the other partners.
