Erik is hands down one of the most helpful investors I've met, and on our cap table. He wasn't afraid to back us with a first check before anyone else, and then was extremely helpful with dozens of intros & backchannel-ing to help put together our next round of funding. He has a genius community builder & marketing mindset, and is always available to help and incredibly well connected.

I moved ~5 other pitches to try to be fresh as I'd had several positive and helpful meetings with FRC and wanted to be fresh. Then he rescheduled the day before, where I had now had 5 pitches before a late evening pitch with him. Then was 10 mins late for our meeting. Took it while travelling. No video. And clearly hadn't prepared. Struggled to understand the problem. Was super patronizing. Genuinely, most disappointing meeting of our last raise.

He cancelled our 2-weeks in advanced scheduled call last minute and sent a mass Bcc style email to every founder he just cancelled. In his email, he said he decided to take a few vacation days that week and will unfortunately not be able to make the meetings. Since he doesn't think he has any remaining meeting time available that month, he will open more slots for the founders when he returns. I guess the founders are supposed to check his calendar periodically to make sure they have a 15 minutes call with him in case he opens up more slots. He must be delusional. Respect for others' time: 0, Communication Skills: 0

Minnie is a rockstar and thus far is our favorite investor on the cap table. She stepped up to lead our seed round out of an accelerator and after working with us to negotiate a pretty founder-friendly term sheet she was extremely helpful in leveraging her investor network to get the rest of the round closed. Her biggest day-to-day value adds are her network and her operational experience from her time as an early exec at Google and a co-founder of Shift. Always there when we need support but certainly not overbearing -- I'm always happy to pick up her calls (and vice versa).

No bs kind of guy. Him and Gaurav are a good cop + bad cop duo, Anamitra seems to be the bad cop (not in a bad way, but he's not the kind of guy to exchange pleasantries for too long during a pitch meeting). I liked working with him and he gave us a response on investment quickly.

I've known Tom for years, and he's one of the most singularly self-interested, self-aggrandizing, and decidedly unhelpful investors in the US or Europe. In each of roles, current and prior, he's only ever been interested in Tom. Pick another partner at GV, or look elsewhere for capital.

Among seed-stage investors, Josh (and FRC at large) is a legend. I've worked with him a bunch personally, and he always knows when to press and when to lay low. He's got a very intuitive sense of what a founder needs at any given time, and given his deep experience and Rolodex, always comes through with a useful and valuable response. It's a cliche, but he's one of the few truly value-add investors that I've worked with. Response time is usually pretty quick, and pitch-to-answer is very quick. In my DD of him before working with FRC, big thumbs up all around.

If you want a pre-seed investor on the cap table who will be a constant source of positivity and constantly hype you up, Turner is your man.
