Responsive but Focused
Pay attention to the "Themes" part of their website. Basically ignore the portfolio. They are very focused on their "Themes". If you don't fit they almost certainly are not interested.

Foundry Rocks
We pitched to 30+ firms for our B-Round in 2009 and got a good dose of the VC world. Some good, some not so much. Foundry was the only firm where we did not have a direct intro. I started reading Brad's blog and felt that they really understood our space. An email, a phone call, a meeting with Brad, then a meeting with everyone and a term sheet within a month. The best part, a year+ into the investment - they really are who they appear to be on their blogs.

Brad Feld is a VC Rock Star
I have known Brad Feld since about 1990, when he was recently out of MIT and running Feld Technology. He has a deep technical background in software and IS design, and he became convinced as early as 1994 that "the Internet will take change the world."

Brad Feld
Clearly Brad Feld has mastered the art of multi-tasking 47 hours worth of wotk into 28 minutes worth of time. I'm about to email him a Exec Summ that he *requested* after we'd exchanged a couple of short emails prompted by a blog he wrote. He seems (at least in the digital sphere) to be a genuine mensch.

Brad Helps Me More Than My Current VC's
Brad took a look at our last round of financing. He loved our product but for various reasons couldn't get over the hump to invest.
