How Well Do You Know This Investor?

One of the closest partners


TX led our first round (a $1M pre-seed) and was the key person in making our second two (a $5M seed and $15M series A) happen. When we first met I liked him but didn't really know what to expect — he's a buttoned-up guy and seemed like a typical VC. In working with him, though, I've been just blown away: he's the hardest-working person I know and went to bat for us in SUCH a big way at every stage: quarterbacked our funding rounds, arranged venture debt on amazing terms, closed key hires, etc. When I told him I wanted to have kids before long he encouraged me to sell some shares in secondary so we could afford it and helped me negotiate to make it happen. When I thought we might need to haircut Fika's pro rata to get a great investor at Seed, TX was *incredibly* kind about it and volunteered to do it (while smaller investors were jerks). Every Series A investor in America seems to know and love him (I've had partners at a16z/Sequoia/etc. sing his praises) and he's also just a wonderful guy on a persona level. Absolutely could not recommend more highly.
