How Well Do You Know This Investor?

Have known this investor for years (know them very well)


Julian is the most genuine, supportive, and helpful investor I have met in my career. He led my company’s Seed round, and made time to chat with me every Tuesday morning for two full years - that’s an incredible commitment compared to every other investor I’ve ever worked with. I fondly remember our conversations - he was bursting with energy and full of ideas for us, from new features we could add to the product to marketing strategies we could try to get the word out. I would leave our calls feeling excited, motivated, and ready to win. When the going inevitably got tough, Julian was our rock - he helped us stay on course and guided us through various difficult times and situations. For that, I am forever grateful. As the years went by and I eventually started a new company, Julian continued to stay in touch and he made numerous helpful intros for me. He had nothing to gain directly from being so helpful, but that speaks volumes about his character - he truly wants to help entrepreneurs succeed. I couldn’t have asked for a better lead investor, and I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for a partner who will have your back as you build your company.
