Like Many Other Israeli Funds, Have No Concept of Doing Business.

Will provide false hopes then drag you forever. Will not answer e-mails for weeks. Operate on trends rather than real analysis of investment opportunity. Very arrogant.

They learn and learn and learn about you with no real point. I've seen some real stupid investments that they did which makes you wonder if they don't just waste their limited partners' money.

3rd Tier Group: Dumb Money!

Fund: Giza Venture Capital

Posted by VCresource on 2007-09-06

PUBLIC:

Giza is considered to be quite a poor quality VC in the general Israeli VC community. They are considered to be a very opportunistic group of guys that are more focused on favorable deal terms than actually working together with the entrepreneur to build a company. They are quite lazy and don't invest much efforts in due diligence (typically just piggyback on other VC efforts) and don't have the needed operational expertise that could add value on the boards of their companies.
I would take money from them only as a last resort and nothing else worked

Unprofessional DDsers, they think they are, and usually will come with Zillion questions (mostly not relevant) showing how lost they are in their huge amount of data, diving in their own pod.

Arrogant is the Least to Say

Fund: Giza Venture Capital

Arrogant is the least to say!

I know them for quite some time, and in my previous position, before starting my own company they have approached me several time for consulting and advice for one of their portfolio companies.

Recently I met with them several times; every meeting was with no goal, no clear answers, and no clear questions... the typical See-More people. Not only do they make you spend your time, but they also don't even have the minimum respect to call and give a clear Yes or No answer!

Is it only the Israeli VC's that are so ARROGANT" At least that is what my experience shows.

Arrogant and Untrustworthy

Fund: Giza Venture Capital

Posted by Anonymous on 2007-03-24

PUBLIC:

This VC turned to us saying "we are very interested in your line of business. Please send us a biz plan". After we sent them, we got a reply saying "hi DUDE. I don't believe I'm returning back to you, but if you ever decide to change the focus to xxx... call us back" (this is no joke, and we have the email correspondence). I-„¢ve hear many incidents regarding this VC, but I-„¢ll leave the writing of this to the people that experienced this from first hand, like the incident we had.
