I Would Suggest Renaming Firm to 'Generic Capital'

PUBLIC:

I was contacted by Steve as they were very interested in hearing my pitch. He talked me into coming to their town on my dime. I also spent serious money on a hotel near their expensive offices. When I got the offices for our meeting, Steve and Joel didnt even allow me to pitch, instead bringing me to a couch where they proceeded to railroad me and not hear my plan or vision. Im an expert in both my field and online marketing, and deserved to be treated that way. In fact, if someone flys to see you at your request, spends $200 a night on a hotel, you should have the professionalism to allow them to actually DO their pitch. I wasnt allowed to, and was even belittled while there. Steve never followed up to my follow up email to him. Its very ironic because their website brags about how these guys will be a refreshing experience from how most investors treat enteprenuers. Quite the contrary, they were MY WORST experience of any of the 16 pitches we made accross the country. Beware of these guys, let them pay your airfare and hotel if they are really excited to meet you! They can afford it by the looks of their offices, and they really DONT really care about enteprenuers, as someone who has actually been there and met them.
