The best way to tell me what you think is to send a tweet to me on Twitter. Please do not spam my Twitter account with dozens of tweets to get attention, as I deliberately ignore those.
Sadly, I can’t respond to all questions, but I do answer quite a few.
Getting a reference through someone I know is the best way to get attention from me as an investor, or any other capacity. I am only co-investing with strategic investors and I am not leading an investment round. So please propose or contact me only if you have a lead investor with a termsheet. I prefer US incorporated companies.Why? See here.
