Ali is actually helpful! She is absurdly well-connected and has a ton of grit. She comes at investing with an operational mindset; from the sense of getting stuff done, moves the needle.

JJ is really smart and knowledgable. They definitely take their time to do diligence, but if they invest, I think its worth it. Underrated firm.

Paul insisted on spending at least 10 minutes of our 30-minute chat just talking about my career path on LinkedIn instead of talking about the business. Felt like I was being grilled during an investment banking analyst interview. Was easily the most frustrating meeting I had during that round. Huge waste of time and doubting his judgment. 0/10 would not recommend.

Gil classifies Angular Ventures as "deep tech" and its a great classification given the depth of understanding and willingness to dig into complex, opaque markets. He demonstrated conviction very quickly with regards to our company and his understanding of our off the beaten path market was incredible. He is a pleasure to work with and his knowledge of the broader VC landscape has been and continues to be invaluable to us. Recommend working with Gil to any and all founders in the deep tech space!

Vinod is very responsive, quick to make decisions, and valuable in building your company. However, he will take advantage of situations to the detriment of others on cap table including founders and other investors. He was a large enough investor that other investors were reluctant to come into the round. I would recommend having him on your cap table, but not being in a position where he has significant leverage (ie largest ownership stake or majority voting control).

I first met Nika when I posted on a Facebook group asking if anyone was attending an education conference in San Francisco. She responded, stating she'd be happy to meet. She was on-time for the meeting and spent over an hour talking with me about education and providing feedback on my business. Even though her firm invests in a later stage than my company, she's happily met with me several other times when I've reached out to provide an update. She's also reviewed my pitch deck and video pitches without any hesitation. She asks thoughtful questions and always offers a helping hand. It's always a pleasure speaking with Nika, and I would highly recommend her.

Vinay was one the first checks into our seed round and has been a disproportionate value add ever since. He's sharp, but more importantly, kind and compassionate. He cares about you as a person and is willing to take the time to build a real relationship. Helped with numerous intros that made our round possible. If he ever reaches out, take the call 100%.

Probably the most arrogant person I’ve ever met. I had gotten a few term sheets from other Tier 1 funds when I spoke to him (so I knew my company wasn’t a total dud), but still he was dismissive, unengaged, and an all-around asshole.
