Investor is committed to Deep Tech and B2B. He is thoughtful, accessible and open to working through the complexity of startups. He comes off as very friendly and experienced (he was a founder) but don't underestimate his business savvy. He is entrepreneur-focused and is one of the few investors I have met who means it when he says that he invests in teams.

Smart guy but incredibly rude. Cut me off 10 minutes into my pitch and told me all the reasons we were going to fail, did the same to other founders.

I met Priya virtually after she reached out. We had a good introductory call that led to multiple calls with her and her team at Mayfield. I have great respect for their process but it went left after they did customer interviews. She said they needed to have a in-person meeting prior to submitting a term sheet which I actually respected no one is wiring millions of dollars to founders they have never met even in a pandemic. After a few calls I started to get a weird feeling she was texting me during the day with follow up questions and then all of the sudden there was radio silence. I think transparency is key in VC and if you cannot get full buy-in from your partnership you should not take founders through multiple hour long calls as well as get real customers to talk with you unless you are definitely going to put a term sheet on the table. Maybe it's the fund but this is a very old school way to get deals done and it leaves a bad taste in the mouth as a very busy founder trying to run an effective fundraising process.

Spent a lot of time with this investor and firm. A couple of calls, a lot of expressed interest, access to the data room, and then a complete ghosting. Disappointing experience overall. As the process went further it seemed like there was less and less respect for our time.

Though she didn't invest, she was very approachable. It wasn't the standard "let me know how I can be helpful" but felt like an actual empathetic conversation despite being a mismatch in what we were building and their interests. Most investors don't reply, or just say no and that is the end of it.

Incredibly decent human being who just happens to also be a very good investor. Great person to have on your board, especially if you're in the music and media space.

Founded WikiHow — very well connected from a 'super angel' perspective. But also super into the 'hippy/spiritual' world that all these VCs are into, and a bit unresponsive. Nice guy though!

Including Alan in our seed round was one of the best decisions I've made for our company. After committing to our round, he helped us close a handful of highly sought after investors that have been a huge help to our company. In our Series A and recently Series B, he has continued to make more high quality introductions to partners at funds than anyone else on our cap table. I've never felt as though Alan is a typical investor. Being an operator himself, talking with him has always felt more like spending time with a peer. He’s extremely frank/honest/to the point but in a kind/empathetic way that makes it easier to engage in difficult conversations. When Ive found myself in hard situations, he’s the first person I call. Grateful for his support and would recommend anyone who get a chance to work with him to take it.
