Fund: The Founders Fund
Posted by Anonymous on 2009-12-21
In the morning was Sequoia, in the afternoon was Founders Fund. It was a night and day difference. While Sequoia has two partners who sit back and evaluate us (banter, pitch, questions, banter), Founder's Fund had a firing squad (principles, associates, partners, etc.) ready to interrupt you during the pitch.
To be fair, we had a number of warm introductions so the firing squad problem may have not been specific to Founder's Fund, so know the number of individuals in your meeting beforehand, so you don't have this problem.
Overall, good experience- direct, nice guys, a little bit overzealous (for those associates) to shoot down ideas, but the partners had maturity.PRIVATE: Members Only
