PUBLIC:

I actually read all of the posts before "signing" a diligence agreement with GHV and took all the precautions we could - we got a very reduced "fee", went back and forth on the contract multiple times over legal terms, asked for precautions, talked to others, etc, all trying to hedge our bets. Manny and his team (to remain anonymous as some of them are advisors to GHV and not official employees of GHV) legitimately seemed like nice guys and seemed interested/excited in what we were doing. We entered into diligence with them, and spent the next 2 months putting together all of the information they asked for. We built up a good relationship, they asked us questions and for further information, we had lunches, drinks, etc. I believe they even put together an investment memo on our company. I was convinced that this was a fair process and that others were wrong about their previous experiences with GHV. Then, however, one day they went silent. They claimed to be drafting a SPA for us but simply stopped returning emails and phone calls. We never received a formal response one way or another. I would have been fine with them "passing" on the deal but would 1, have liked to know why and get some feedback considering we paid their fees, and 2, would have liked to have been given a response up front instead of waiting around for 2 months for them to get back to us. It was a huge waste of time, and in my mind, an example of some of the worst business etiquette I have ever experienced. Not to mention we turned away other investors because we felt bad about breaking the terms of our arrangement. I used to be on the investor side of things and we would AT THE VERY least give honest feedback even to companies we never went into any sort of process with. I legitimately enjoyed our time in working with GHV until this latest happening and thus I was giving them the benefit of the doubt before posting anything here. That said, with still no response on their end, I felt it was only duty to post about our experience. To have taken up our time, money, and our resources and not even give any official response one way or another just seems unacceptable.
