How Well Do You Know This Investor?

1

Stay far, far away. This guy falls into the class of investors that founders whisper about as being full of hot air. Treats founders very differently based on how much he thinks they will contribute to his personal brand (regardless of actual success of the founder). His lack of any serious operational experience is belied by the mostly-fluff advice he gives founders or tweets about. Erik is purely about clout chasing and trying to seem smart/important on Twitter without actually having anything useful to contribute. There is so much capital out there you don't need it from a deeply insecure status-chaser.
