Feedback is Golden
Had a good experience interacting with them. Did not get "yes", but got a good reasoning behind of it.

Strange Way of Doing Business
They weren't the worst VC we've spoken to, but they were very blunt and hardly let us speak. It was all about their own opinion without even hearing our answers to their questions. Lastly, when it came to our product, they had to ask their mates what they thought instead of using their market insight. It ended negatively for us but without any feedback other than 'our mates weren't interested so we're not'.

Out On a Limb but Hitting the Mark
Spoke with William, he was super nice had great points and used his logic to assess our pricing and business strategy even though he does not have a huge understanding of our market. Generally enjoyed the conversation

Frontline of Poo
Very rude meeting - began every question with "but" or "no" and then took over 5 weeks to come back.

A Sweet Sounding No
Ran a very transparent process, and clearly communicated feedback that they felt our start-up would require too much capital over time so wasn't for them.

Held Back by Playing it Safe
Very smart team, very respectful to founders, but too risk adverse potentially due to composition of their funds.

Get In If you Can
The best early-stage fund we have worked with by a long distance. The team are very supportive, intelligent and genuinely added value. Well regarded and well connected in the VC community which makes raising subsequent rounds considerably easier. 10/10 recommendation.

Keeping it 100
Frontline is one of the few VC’s that say what they do and do what they say. It is a transparent and well thought out process. Obviously we were disappointed to get a No but the reasoning was detailed, honest and well thought out (which is extremely rare)
