The VC Guide Review is a *protected* & *anonymous* form for founders to submit their experiences and reviews of VC's and investors they've met and worked with. The goal of VC Guide is to be as helpful to as many founders as possible when navigating the venture world, and to level the playing field.
The intention of these reviews is to be helpful and informative. We discourage founders from disparaging investors for the sake of it and to be as honest & objective of their experience as possible.
We do not ask for any names or any information that can be tied back to an individual, and the submission form is protected on an invite-only basis into the VC Guide Founder Community to ensure quality of reviews.
*Note: Anyone who shares the VC Guide password to anyone outside of the VC Guide Founder Community will be banned.
For each review we explicitly ask the following with an open text box for founders to fill out:
"Please leave an honest review of your experience of either talking or working with this VC/investor. Anecdotes are welcome. Try to add as much context as possible to the circumstances of this review, as the intention of this is to be as helpful as possible to other founders."
In addition to an open-slate review form, we ask additional & optional questions to allow founders to add more context to reviews, including:
The reviews also contain optional sliding scale statements that ask: "On a scale from 1-10 (1 = strongly disagree; 10 = strongly agree), to what extend do you agree with this statement?" The sliding scale statements and their explanations are included below.
1. "Respectful, Responsive & Decisive"
2. "Adds Value (Hiring, Fundraising, Selling)"
3. "Trustworthy (Understands Market & Delivers)"
4. "Would You Recommend This Investor?"
