How Well Do You Know This Investor?

Had a couple of meetings

3

We met with Rashmi at the urging of our lead investor, as they felt that M12 (where she was at the time) could add substantial strategic value to our round. She was 18 minutes late to our first meeting and clearly had done zero research on us or our company (which is OK-ish for a first meeting). She asked some smart questions and seemed interested. She committed to getting input from the relevant teams inside of Microsoft and passing that info back to us - good or bad. She also committed to a followup meeting 2 weeks later. When the time for that meeting came (and we drove down to Sunnyvale for it), she wasn't even in the office that day. We met with her associate, who had no idea about any previous meeting, nor any info from Microsoft. We got an apology email the next day and a promise that she would follow up -- she never did, and neither did we. She ended up leaving M12 not too long after, so maybe the problem wasn't really with her, but the whole experience was pretty crappy.
