Worthy to work with
Pros
They are honest, open, and well balanced between taking risk and conservatism. They are able to take decisions that are a bit risky but not crazy.
Cons
I am not really happy with their availability. They have a lot of start-ups and not sufficient staff to cover the possibilities to act as fast as we need. I am not used to asking for something for 2 to 3 times.

Nimble fund for smaller tickets, even before seed round
Pros
They are simply flexible in terms of the company strategy. Very open to any new ideas and they try to be generally helpful.
Cons
They are a smaller fund with not much capital under management. So they cannot invest bigger tickets. Not a good fit for big rounds.
Advice for management
Make your contacts more actionable for your portfolio founders so that they can leverage your network. I would appreciate if you could put a little effort into connecting me with the RIGHT people within my target company

Professional risktakers who accept the risk
Pros
Accepted us not fully understanding the potential of the technology. They believe we are building something great. Exciting enough to invest. They are really professional, trustworthy and reliable. From one part of negotiation to the other it went smoothly. The process was predictable. They were sticking to the spirit of the term sheet rather than negotiating again when closing the legal process. That proved good posture to us. They were really open and honest. I heard from other start-ups that they didn’t take advantage of founders even in bad situations.
Cons
They are subsidised by public money so they cannot to do follow-up so they are limited in what they can do. It’s only a one-off investment.
Advice for management
Maybe to switch to 100% private. These public programs spoil the market. In Poland VCs are poping up like mushrooms even if they have little experience. These guys are risk taking which I appreciate.
