How Well Do You Know This Investor?


The Investor recently reached out to me on a cold email asking for my deck and product demo saying he's actively investing in my area and then replies back "There are similarities with another portfolio company of mine, both with their current product and what I assume will be their future roadmap." I asked which one is your portfolio company, that is a plain website with no product in the backend. He's clearly fishing for what other people are building and not a serious investor!
Verified Investor Response:
I appreciate the Founder taking out time to share this piece of feedback. As with any active VC, I'm always looking for interesting companies. (Fun fact: my very first investment, Fiveable, was a cold outreach from my end and is one of our best performing portfolio to date.) However, I'm also keenly aware of how precious a founder's time is and so try to be decisive and quick with follow-ups. That's what happened here, and it obviously was miscommunicated or misinterpreted. I'm looking at this as an opportunity to improve. Cheers!
