Rich Wong is one of the most founder supportive institutional investors I know. He was an excellent board member, always looking to balance the many points of view, and he never gave up on us, even in our toughest times. Throughout my experience with him he approached every conversation with integrity and respect.

He will bend over backwards to get on your cap table and then you will never hear from him again. He’s not an investor, he’s just an opportunist who prays on inexperienced founders and schmoozes them with his outsized intellect. We felt extremely time pressured by him to close and in retrospect when we spoke to other founders in our YC batch - they did too. It seems like he likes creating artificial stress to make you sign without thinking.

KP's background in construction makes him preloaded with relevant network and experience. He's made a real difference for us and I'd warmly recommend him.

Honestly the most genuine nice guy ever. Their active mentorship style with the companies is very hands on and helpful. Just be sure you have the right hands.

There are very few people I respect more — he’s been an incredible value-add investor and advisor to us. Really strong consumer product instincts — enjoys getting in the weeds around product experience, king of candid feedback and incredibly well connected. There are people who talk and people who walk — Nate walks. 10/10

Chris has been a great partner in thinking through ideas and sharing tactical advice. He always makes himself available, is extremely responsive, and he cares personally. I'm grateful for all the time and energy Chris has put into helping us build a stronger business and grow personally.

What a nice guy. On my shortlist of investors I will talk to when I'm ready. Ben is actually hilarious and just a pleasure to know. He's humble and ready to grind to help you out.

It's hard to imagine there are better people today to work with than Alexis. Beyond how hard he goes for your team both privately & publicly, Alexis's moral compass is aligned in a way that few people's are (especially in venture). Alexis is truly involved in companies that are making the world better and you can trust him to support you thoughtfully and with good intentions through the good and the bad times of building your business. Alexis understands what it means to be a founder and how to build incredible product, but has an uncanny sense for internet culture at a time when the world's economy is being increasingly driven by attention.
