How Well Do You Know This Investor?

Had one meeting with this investor

1

I had an onsite meeting with Alfred at their office. While I completely understand receiving tough, direct questions from investors which is always welcomed and appreciated. When an investor is on their phone the entire meeting and not paying attention, questions being asked that lack context aren't helpful or productive. Subsequently, I was ghosted after the meeting with no response, nothing. Unfortunately this was a terrible first impression of Seqoia and on the complete opposite spectrum of other seed VCs in the valley that make you feel like they're genuinely interested in your business.
