Josh is uncommonly kind, incredibly helpful, and razor sharp. He has an amazing network and puts founders first. You should be so lucky to have him on your cap table.

It's rare to find someone who is 1) genuinely interested in technology and products people are building 2) wants to be as helpful as possible to founders 3) super smart and 4) just an extremely nice person. Jacqueline definitely has all of these traits, and SignalFire is an exciting and innovative firm to partner with.

Greg is thoughtful, conscientious, and engaged. Ultimately there was not a match between his fund and our ambitions, but it was a solid respectful process which moved quickly.

My co-founder and I are currently raising a seed round, and although Shawn (and the rest of the team) did not end up investing in us after a few weeks of diligence, they were straightforward, honest brokers throughout the entire process. They updated us on where they were constantly, respected our timeline, and after passing gave detailed, constructive feedback. I would highly recommend them.

Very knowledgeable. No BS - straight the point. Open conversation that I learned a lot from. Colin showed great data from some of their previous deals that were extremely useful for my business. We aren't working together (yet) since we don't really need the money (yet) but great impressions overall. Would recommend.

Just also runs the Chapter One VC fund, but I figured it would be worth a separate review for his acceleration program, called Product Club. The application and selection process was very transparent and fast. Right from the moment we learned we had been accepted Jeff made himself available to various channels and it remained that way until after the conclusion of the program. the program itself was very valuable to our startup. The quality of the one-to-one mentorships was great, and we were able to close a pre-Seed round largely thanks to joining the program and Jeff's contacts. I guess the best way to summarize our experience is to state that we would be willing to give some equity to participate in the program even without the $100,000 investment.

I'd met Ryan through a warm intro and pitched via Zoom. He ultimately did not invest. Pitching Ryan (and Weekend Fund partner Vedika) was the single best experience I've ever had pitching an investor. Despite the product being highly technical beyond Ryan's scope, he truly listened, asked intelligent questions, and riffed on the idea with me. The rejection email was very well thought out, and clearly not the classic cop-out feedback most VCs give. He's been highly responsive via email since, and is always willing to field updates. Ryan is simply a nice person.

Paul and Azure are pretty "typical" investors but I mean that in a good way. They allow a ton of freedom while still being outcome oriented. Prompt to respond. Straight shooters.

Even though Mac is a new fund manager, I believe that he's going to be the new face of venture. He works extremely hard, makes sure to help us out even though he's not an investor. He comes from a very good place and clearly has a passion for what he does.
