Deepak found us, and nudged us towards accepting DTC into our Series A. He was persistent, but respectful. In doing our due diligence, other founders relayed stories about his expansive network, creative problem solving/thinking and easy-going nature. We found all of those things to be true, and we would recommend working with him.

It's honestly hard to beat someone like Kirsten when it comes to being an incredible marketplace investor. She's the best of the best, incredibly knowledgeable, and every time I talk to her it feels like I'm learning something new and skipping years of hard-earned insights. Not to mention she's so nice. Great person to riff with, and when the going gets tough, she's in the weeds with you. Incredible.

I work in an industry that they don't normally invest in, but the conversation with her was my first time in the valley where I felt I had the full attention of the investor I'm speaking with. No matter the industry, if you get a chance to speak with Whitney Sales, do it.

Launch Capital is the least founder-friendly firm I've ever worked with. They participated early on and have continued to hamstring us at every single round of financing since the beginning, putting our rounds and other new investors at jeopardy (which ultimately would handicap their own investment but they don't seem to care). They have added exactly zero value. No customer intros, no recruits, no PR -- nothing. I would never work with them again.

I've known Gil since 2012, and while he's never been an investor in any of my companies he has been there with advice, perspective, and network whenever I've needed it, no conditions on strings attached. When it comes to solving problems, I have always found him to be thoughtful, and analytical. He has a way of shining a light on areas you may have overlooked, or not even thought about. If you've just met him, his style of questioning might make a first-time founder feel a little bit defensive. But know that he is trying to get to the core of the problem or solution, and while it may feel he's being too analytical, he's really driven by a desire to be as helpful as he can. My favourite conversations with him have always been when we dissect a problem or challenge and jam through ideas of how to build out a solution. Gil is a great strategist, and if he wasn't so into VC he'd make a formidable entrepreneur. He's a long-term thinker, is a relationship builder, and is one of the rare VCs that says "how can I help" and genuinely mean it.

Leah is incredibly thoughtful, down to earth, action oriented and realistic. Our funding round with her was closed super fast, every interaction with her and her team has been seamless. She always makes herself available but has not been super proactive with outreach and support - with may or may not be a good thing, depending on the level of involvement you're looking for in your partners. She is INCREDIBLY personable and real; 100% the kind of person you want to have a personal relationship with. In doing my due diligence prior to taking investment, I contact others who've invested in her in the past, and all have similar, long term relationships with her years after initial investment, suggesting that she is the sort of person who operates with decorum, values those relationships and operates as such.

Eze is honest and is always trying to provide value, regardless of via a direct investment or not. Even before we did a deal Eze and Remagine were eager to intro us to multiple corp partners to help push our business forward. Value does not just stop after the check has cleared.

so untrustworthy!!! We pitched Tony at Petri a few times and he shared our deck with a competitor and completely ghosted us at the end. seems like an investor who cares more about their twitter persona than actual customer service. Recommend to all bio founders to avoid him

Amit took a meeting from me despite: cold email, young, solo founder, questionably early traction. Through the whole meeting, he was a joy to talk with. He asked highly relevant questions, gave non-imposing advice, and laid out clear milestones for what metrics I should be showing before he'd bring the deal in front of more partners. He passed in-meeting in an effort to not waste my time, which I appreciate very much. Amit is someone to keep around even if he doesn't join the round. Simply a friendly person who treats you as a teammate right off the bat.
