We pitched Byron and Philippe for our Series A. We came in, gave a pitch, they asked good questions, and at the end of the meeting, they passed. I give Byron high marks for saying no, there and then, and not dragging out the murky no. It seems they only back early stage if a) they know you and b) you already have vertical traction. Despite it feeling a little clubby and insular, I appreciate the way they handled themselves for being direct. I would definitely pitch Byron again.
