You Could Do Worse

Fund: Bain Capital Ventures

Posted by Anonymous on 2018-07-18

PUBLIC:

These guys have put $10M+ into my company over a few years of working together.

Sometimes they're arrogant. Sometimes they check themselves and listen.

They have a good brand that's respected in the industry. It's not the best but it does help.

Everyone here is smart. Some of them have an ego to match.

There's internal firm politics. It's not great. But it's not the worst either.

It's a good, but not great, firm. You could do a lot, lot worse.

Rich Old Idiots Wasting Your Time

Fund: Band of Angels Management

Posted by pitched on 2018-04-05

PUBLIC:

Typical revolving door for greedy old farts with delusion of relevance and expertise. Their idea of state of the art in search is attensity or other assorted crap like that. Better than the now defunct Angels' Forum -- which I observed closely -- they are there to entertain themselves, and waste your time.
They cannot even keep to their own timetable.

Amish is a Kingmaker with a Record, but He Will Beat You Up on Terms (And It May Be Worth It)

Fund: FirstMark Capital - Pequot Ventures

Posted by IPOorBust on 2018-02-10

PUBLIC:

We raised our A round led by Amish and FirstMark. Due diligence is not for the faint of heart. You probably will not be examined this deeply by others even at B or C round. I have been through M&A due diligence and it was easier.
Amish will also beat you up on terms. He is a shark, this is his business, his team is no joke, and considering he sits on boards of 18 companies, he is better at this funding biz than you will be. Suit up, have a good fight on what really matters, and plan to make back what you were beat up on later down the road.

Now that A round is way behind us, I can tell you that his help, and that of his team, is worth it. He has "nose in hands out" style. He will ask a ton of questions, he will be right there to look at every detail of strategic decision and make sure you aren't missing anything. He will question your data, he will question your hypothesis, his right hand man David is at maniacal level with details. And I have learned to really appreciate it. Amish and his crew have immense impact on our business. He will push you to upgrade your skills daily, he will call you out on your BS, but the context of it all is why you need to grow thicker skin and bigger ears - he is a kingmaker. Look at his track record, it speaks for him.
Also, look at FM team. Not your usual viagra crowd. Everyone from associates to partners - top notch.
Also, come rain or shine or snow, he will be at your board meeting, he will come prepared, and for those couple hours your company is the only thing that exists for him and you have all of his attention, skills, and experience at your disposal. No answering of texts or emails, no taking phone calls, etc.

I Thought They Were Defunct

Fund: The Angels Forum

Posted by CarolSandsCashMachine on 2018-02-06

PUBLIC:

I do not think they exist anymore.
Most angel groups are revolving doors for the greedy people with the organizers making money. One of their angels Mike complained to me that he had lost $4M in investments. The more reputable ones that got suckered into joining -- former CEO of Rambus and former CFO of Maxim (I think), will not even list it on their Linkedin as an experience.
Carol Sands had a Halo Fund in parallel with Angels' Forum. She would invest the funds money in what the Angels' thought were the best deals, but would not tell them that she is also investing. Her background in entrepreneurship was None. Halo Fund's track record dismal. Last I look

Great Support, Fantastic Team!

Fund: Jump Capital

Posted by Anonymous on 2017-09-09

PUBLIC:

Sach and Mike are top notch when it comes to assisting companies. They not only support companies from their first investments into them, but also help to ensure that there is a strategic path towards best opportunities for the company and employees involved. Although there was one poor comment written above, you should take that with a grain of salt, as this is a group that can help you scale with the right resource assistance when needed.
