We are not in an investible sector/stage for him but Wenz has been a valuable thought partner and gives pointed, no BS feedback on how to think through key decisions. He helped us put together materials, spent a full hour giving feedback on our mock pitch and made plenty of introductions. Will probably have quite the track record a few years from now - watch this space.

John passed on us on the first Zoom and gave clear reasoning why, which we appreciated. None of the "let me bring this back to my team...". He spent the rest of our time sharing information on playbooks that worked in our space and what he would look for, which is great, since as founders we only have anecdotal information on larger competitors' initial GTM.

Pretty unusual experience when we were raising our seed round - dragged out the process and even asked us to give a presentation to one of her LPs (??) before passing. Would not recommend.

Brian is good people. Consistent sounding board during the ups and downs, and because Story is not focused on the hype cycle of silicon valley he has a meaningfully differentiated view on problems worth solving.

Very impressed by her depth of knowledge and style of thinking. She was able to bring clarity to a lot of half-baked ideas.

A riddle wrapped inside of an enigma. Who is this guy and what is his endgame? The first time I met him I was surprised to feel the realization that his reputation may have built on smoke, mirrors, and—as another reviewer mentioned—seemingly propped up by his twitter follower numbers. I mean, he's even given private classes on growing your Twitter following and how to tweet to optimize for engagement. To state the facts, Erik really doesn't have enough experience himself as an operator to be an effective investor to a founder. Can he introduce you to literally every other Silicon Valley investor and some Product Hunt alumni? Sure. But where does that get you? Perhaps the ability to impress a few first-time founders and young twitterati by namedropping the hypebeast investor on your cap table. The more time I spent around him, the more I realized that there's significantly little value he could bring besides the check. So, seeing an opportunity, and even being a chosen member in one of his 'communities', I reached out to pitch him at my early stage... and got the ghost, twice. He's hired a few bright folks to build a unique community with OnDeck but I just fail to see much else. This is business, not a reality show. 3/10, do not recommend.

Darian met up with us quickly and made his investment decision within a day. He already knew a lot about the space and came prepared. Since investing, Darian has made the most customer introductions and candidate introduction of any of our investors. He's always been available and helpful to us. I couldn't recommend him enough.
