Kyle helped us find and close a key hire, responds to messages at all hours, is straight with you, and truly works as hard as the founders he backs. As a former founder himself, I especially appreciate that he's been in your shoes and understands what you might be going through on a personal level, not just the business. He's frank with you, and even when you're going through tough times, he's there for you. I'm lucky to have him as an investor and I wholeheartedly recommend him.

Met Dean 4 years ago when they just started fund. They made a seed investment decision in two weeks. Took a board seat. Dean is a former entrepreneur - took the company he cofounded as CEO to IPO and $1.5B market cap before exiting. He has been in my shoes and knows what a founder goes through. He is empathetic and very supportive. He loves to help and dives deep when asked. He is very good to building financial models and I have relied on him to build ours and keep it current. They are new to the VC world so are operating a smaller fund. They don't have the connections to other VC funds the way more established funds in the valley do. They funded two hardware companies but are now wary of hardware like most VCs as its a longer ramp-up and needs more capital than they can provide alone. Above everything they are honest, mean what they say and do what they say. Its a wonderful fund for a seed stage start up.

Before we even met, Ameet went out of his way to make introductions to founders in their portfolio & connect us with other potential investors. I've never met a VC who was so generous with his time and his contacts. Cannot recommend enough!

We met with Andrew last year for our seed round. He's a nice enough guy, but a massive waste of time. Every meeting, he drones on and talks forever. He took us through a 5-6 meetings over the course of 3 weeks, a few really strange midnight calls, mentioned a term sheet & specific deal terms several times, and eventually passed because of a product related issue he knew about in meeting #1. I didn't care that he passed, I was more frustrated with just how much of my time he wasted to pass for such a basic reason. Pretty much the definition of an unsophisticated investor.

Deeply impressive background as a consumer investor, though very intimidating/not that helpful as an investor from my own personal experience.

Neil Devani is one of Silicon Valley's best kept secrets. He spends more time on the phone with entrepreneurs than he does on social media hyping himself up. People who know him know he's incredibly intelligent, thoughtful, and helpful. Get him on your cap table if you can.

Peter is brilliant. He is a technical expert in a mind boggling number of fields. If your company involves challenging tech, he's a great person to go to.
