Lacking respect and seniority
Pros
Are getting better and better, they are learning and developing
Cons
- to much hands on - lacking respect - think they know everything the best, lack of listening - lacking seniority but that us getting better and better - absence of long-term strategy what they intend to do with their assets. One day they are profit focused, another day they are investement focus od exit focused. Hard to build on that.

Huge success with some companies gives them an unnecessary cocky attitude
Pros
They have huge capital behind their back as well as a lot of huge success stories. VC is just one leg of the groups business. They can find good synergies for their portfolio companies if they are motivated enough.
Cons
The success and magnitude of their group makes them cocky at times. Both I and other founders got a feeling from them that they are making clear to founders that they are the ones who has the cash in this relationship. Also, I was in touch with them multiple times during the development of our business. Multiple times they didn't follow-up on meetings and with steps they promised to do. They ghosted me at times. Generally, I had a feeling that they were passing me like a hot potato among the members of the team.

Professional approach, speed, clear conditions. However, offering ultralow valuation on purpose.
Pros
Speed and transparency
Cons
Trying to decrease the valuation artificially
Advice for management
Don't push too much on the valuation
