How Well Do You Know This Investor?

10

Look, none of us are here to pat each other on the back and dance around soft letdowns. Delian understands what his job is (and what it isn't), knows where to be fast and efficient, and doesn't waste time- his, or yours. He's lightning quick on email responses, totally throws himself into your world, made time to visit in-person as fast as possible, and asks the hard questions to (quickly) get a sense of what it's like to walk in your shoes. Every interaction with him (and Keith) was to-the-point, efficient, energizing, and blunt; if your baby is ugly, he'll do you a favor and tell you. He wrote us a thoughtful pass note (more than "not a fit at this time"), offered to continue to give advice until we could be in a more relevant stage to FF in the future, and it was obvious he backs his quick action up with lots of thought. If you want to push yourself, Delian has high expectations. If intensity is uncomfortable, then don't waste your time.
