I don't know Gautam in the traditional VC context (his fund focuses on B2C while I am B2B). However, I know him as a fellow founder. Even before he joined M13, he was very helpful to me (more than my own VCs) and I know he does the same for other founders as well. I can only imagine how valuable he would be as your VC.

Entitled and arrogant. Expressed excitement to chat in person but then ghosted after confirming meeting over email. Gets up mid-conversation if she's not interested.

Founders, don't take the meeting, just don't. Unless you want to be gaslighted by people who don't understand VC or entreprenuership (or even seem to really care about it.) Jarrid is interesting. I think he means well, he just seems to be caught up in the hype. He seems very intelligent, but investing doesn't suit him or his colleagues well. I am not even sure why an LP would give this group money. I get it that they're a new firm, but they are hyper-disorganized, and all over the place, and the founder will pay for it. They are more concerned with a Hollywood pursuit; the "lights, camera, action", their fashion, and the likes on social media than they are the fund, and truly serving founders. The entire team needs to practice more humility, and realize they too have much, much further to go. A $40M fund is bread crumbs, don't get so caught up in the hype, and lose focus. Founders, RUN. LPs, RUN.

Ron is one of the highest integrity investors I know. He genuinely cares about founders and not about the financial outcome of his investment. He wants whats best for founding teams.

Jason invested in our small company in May 2020 and our trajectory has never been the same. The input from him and his team has completely changed how we operate as founders and the results speak for themselves. Since he got involved we have pitched over 200 VC's and our monthly revenue has increased seven times by October 2020. He is honest and straightforward with his feedback and understand what it takes. We would not hesitate to recommend Jason and consider ourselves lucky to be part of the Launch community.

Graham has been amazing. While our company was too early for GGV he's been super helpful in making strategic warm intros to relevant investors. Graham is super transparent and overall a nice guy. Doesn't play the typical tire-kicking VC game but is very focused on adding value even to companies GGV doesn't invest in. Graham is the sole reason I would like GGV on our cap table.

Sara was one of the mosts genuine and responsive VCs we had the pleasure of meeting while fundraising for our seed round. I felt that she really wanted to understand our business, but not in a way that was malicious nor for seeking competitive intelligence (something we felt with some other firms). Wing eventually passed on the round but Sara has continued to be helpful with intros to valuable industry contacts and invites to exclusively events. Even after passing, it feels like she's still invested in seeing our company succeed.

Jason is a thoughtful, kind investor who's always trying to be supportive. He's most helpful when making connections for you, but he's also great to talk through strategy with.
