Empty Ashwin

Enterprise Ventures

Only one way to describe Ashwin Kumaraswamy -- Mr Empty. Empty head, making empty talks.

He has no authority. He makes requests which are simply empty and ridiculous. He claims to understand IT (enterprise hardware and software) and business, more than he does.

Avoid These Guys at All Costs

Tech Coast Angels

If you are in the startup business and don't care about product, creating value, or your company achieving long term goals, TCA is right for you. First they only invest in ideas so that are so safe because they have been de-risked by several other companies doing the same thing who were successful years ago. Meaning they will encourage you to sell your company by flipping it to a competitor in about three to five years.

They want as much of your company as they can get to cover their asses in heavy dilution that will not occur. Do not fall for their game. They don't do due diligence even though they say they do. All there decision are based on people who are related to them or know nothing about your industry. You are better off going up to Silicon Valley and finding someone who believes in you.

In short if you want to change the world look elsewhere, if you want to be a millionaire and will do anything to become one (including selling your soul, your company, and your dignity), these guys will be your best friend.

Great Partner, Poor Fund

Teuza Management & Development

My company was scouted by one of the junior partners, Yakir, who was very interested and showed great involvement and zeal for our particular field of work. He setup a meeting between us and more senior members of the board who pulled a last minute no-show.

A few days later came the message that our industry is out side the fund's field of interest.

All in all, Yakir, whom we actually meet, was great. Insightful and to the point. Teuza the company however, were far less impressive.

Larry Begley and 406 are Top Tier Boston VC's

406 Ventures

I have known Larry for over a year, and greatly admire and appreciate his willingness and ability to roll up his sleeves and help me grow and scale my company. His areas of operating and industry expertise are highly valued by not only me, but also my leadership team and my board of directors. Larry is a great friend, advisor and mentor for any company that is looking to change the world for the better. His partners at .406 also add great value in connecting businesses with potential opportunities.
I highly recommend Larry and his partners at .406 to any company at any stage that might be looking for business insights or operating expertise in growing and scaling their business.

Untrustworthy

Aperture Venture Partners

Poor response time, and when we did get to do a phone pitch (and after they requested and received our corporate overview) they dropped a bomb in the middle of the pitch that they had just closed on a deal with our key competitor. The partner we interfaced with is Tony Natale (relatively new with them), who has a pretty poor track record. Previous firm went under.
