Fund: 406 Ventures

I pitched Maria Cirino and Graham Brooks several times. Really had an exceptional experience. They were a recommendation to us from a friend, which is what put them on our radar screen initially (they are not typically known around Boston as a firm focused on straight consumer internet, but I had heard some very compelling things about Maria as an operator from several folks who know her well).
Graham took the initiative to really dig into our business so that he could get a good initial feel for what we were up to. Super nice guy.
Ultimately, they weren't a good fit for our business, but they were incredibly helpful with numerous relevant introductions (including a fellow who ended up on our Advisory Board). At the end of the day, we secured some very valuable introductions and a relationship with this fund for our future endeavors. Time well spent. I would have no reservation recommending them.PRIVATE: Members Only
