I'm surprised some people on the board think poorly of Jeremy Levine.
I was really impressed with him and his former squire Mitchell Greene. They tried to do a late stage liquidity investment in my company, but ended up getting bid out by a strategic acquiring company. Sequoia was involved in the process and despite having a better brand, we were more impressed with Jeremy than the guy we were working with at Sequoia.
My only critique is that Jeremy ended up getting me to include more parties in the deal by starting with a valuation which was too low.
As long as you have a backbone, and can stand your ground, he's a very honest, upfront guy to work with.
Very intelligent too, can add more value than just $$.
Once my current venture gets some wings, I am considering offering him a board seat w/o a financing.PRIVATE: Members Only (342 Characters)
