How Well Do You Know This Investor?

One of the closest partners

10

Erik is one of the best investors I know. He is super accessible and broadly curious. He is in the top 1% of people deliberately building a diverse community of founders / angels / technologists and is extremely generous with his network -- angels, customers, experts in the field. I have personally benefitted repeatedly from the depth and breadth of Erik's network. It's easy to underestimate community / network, but enduring companies are built on long term relationships not short term tactics -- and Erik is optimizing for the long term. If you're a tech bro he's probably not right for you. If you're a cultured empathetic long term thinker who cares about the tech community broadly and pushing your thinking / network beyond the typical tech/VC bubble then there's no better person to partner with than Erik.
