PUBLIC:

Fast thinkers, fast movers. Tend to make lots of bets, including multiple bets in one industry if needed. They love crazy business models - the kinds of things most VC's would shy away from. True VENTURE investors.

I ended up taking a DFJ investment in one of my start-ups, and they were great. Help when I needed it (recruiting, contacts, etc.), but mostly hands off, which allows you to move fast. Far better than KPCB or Benchmark, who promised the same and then slowed us down by 50% with all their meddling.
