Really strong and impactful advice throughout our relationship. A ton of operating experience that's really helped us scale the company as well.

While being very vocal on social media (esp. Twitter) about how founder friendly and responsive IQ is, in practice, I was disappointed with his approach to interactions. There seemed very little enthusiasm or even interest forthcoming which in turn made me feel IQ couldnt possibly be good partners for us.

I liked how our conversations were focused on business fundamentals and potential future growth of our joint business rather then just move funds back and forth. Steve had good insights and healthy intuitions with regards to our service (which was outside of his regular scope of expertise). This in my opinion makes him a worthwhile business partner.

Okay, total 'boy'. I'm sorry I know that was a super fratty way of describing something in an already nepotistic realm, but he's just so nice and chill. First meeting I ever had with him was over drinks and he's just super helpful and kind. Impressive portfolio, and sharp investor.

Patrick is a very helpful and well connected investor. He connected us to a related investor, and also works collaboratively with other strategic investors. He has also made contacts within his portfolio to other investments which are beneficial to us

Very busy, but very kind. Have never worked with her directly, but have spent time on phone calls with her to field my founder anxieties back in the day.

His team mistakenly identified us as a YC company and as soon as we mentioned that we were not at the in-person meeting, he immediately lost interest. Had some nice remarks on market-founder fit, but tbh, we were pretty early compared to where we are now. Didn't get a strong sense that he understood tech or healthcare.

Keith is an incredibly friendly guy when you first meet him. I was honestly quite starstruck, as he is a noted member of the Paypal mafia. I was introduced to Keith by a fellow Stanford grad from my grade while working on an AI startup, and Keith immediately agreed to meet for coffee. I was warned by another friend that Keith has previously been embroiled in a sex scandal at Squarespace, and to be careful. For our first meeting, he proposed to have it at a fancy restaurant in Mountain View. It was a bit of a weird ambiance, and I left thinking that he’d told me about his personal life and asked about mine more than felt comfortable. On our second meeting, I bought my Co-founder and COO. Keith proposed an investment, but ghosted us promptly after when we reached out to followup.

Jim is experienced, thoughtful, and wise. He'll tell you up front if he doesn't see you getting VC on favorable terms and what to do to be in a better position--rather than string your along and beat you up later. His portfolio is primarily Gov-tech, but it's done well.
