An associate was supposed to call me to chat before I was scheduled to pitch at their office. The associate blew me off and then called me later to tell me to come into the office. He was supposed to meet me with John Simon.
I was left waiting for 45 minutes in their conference room and when John finally showed up the associate was nowhere to be found. He blew me off again! John then told me that our hour time slot had to be cut to 15 minutes because he was running late. He must have felt that it was alright to keep me waiting but he couldn't do that to his next meeting.
He then low balled me and said that I could probably find other VCs willing to pay me more because they probably didn't have the same quality of deal flow as GC and that they were probably unable to post the kind of returns that GC has posted. I have never met anyone as cocky as him in my entire life.
Life is too short to deal with people like this.PRIVATE: Members Only
