Scott Johnson Seems Quite Good!

Fund: New Atlantic Ventures

Posted by Anonymous on 2014-05-06

PUBLIC:

Not-so-great:

Like many VCs, seems a bit too focused on "the pitch" (the deck, show, and script; "pitch as performance") rather than regarding the pitch as the time-wasting, full-tangent/kabuki contrivance it is (having little predicative merit).

Don't come too early. All seed-stage funds claim there's no such thing; however, they're lying. If your ducks aren't in a row, you'll blow the opportunity.

Good:

Responsive and, while ultimately disinterested in having us pitch, actively helpful. That is unheard-of. I've spoken with him quite a few times, and find him smart and good natured. None of these guys are princes, but he's orders-of-magnitude more engaged and engaging than most other VCs.

All VCs talk about "disrupting, disintermediating, re-inventing," blah-blah-blah. They're more vapidly aspirational than they claim us entrepreneurs to be. Scott is notably different. I believe he actually likes what he does. He doesn't froth at the mouth, isn't beguiled by his own rhetoric, and is smart enough to actually help direct the ball.

Get org'ed, make sure you have a really solid opportunity and know how to exploit it, and find Scott. He makes almost every other VC I experienced look cranky and inept by comparison.
