Pleasantly Surprised

ff invested in my company, and while we were grateful for the money, they were a smallish part of the round, so I wasn't counting on much aside from the cash. To my surprise, John has been the most on-the-ball, helpful investor in our latest round. He responds immediately to his companies' needs and has hooked us up repeatedly. I have been pretty much blown away by how hard he's worked for us. Definitely recommend.

No Response

Was introduced to John through a very high value advisor of ours. John didn't respond to my email for 2 weeks, and even then only said that his admin would schedule a meeting. After never hearing from her, I sent a follow up email asking if he was interested.....still no response.

Seriously, at least have the courtesy to reply to my email! If nothing more than out of respect for our mutual contact!

Best Work Ethics

Fund: ff Venture Capital

PUBLIC:

I was not part of the initial investment process, but joined the company just after.

Over time, I had the chance to work with John and his team on different aspects related to the operation of the company from marketing aspects to social and financial aspects.

John and his professional team have shown me that there are other ways to be a VC.

Where most VCs try to send expense reports to the company and force the company to make unneeded expenses (like consulting, recruiting, travel and what not), John has made every effort to help utilize the investment better. By offering his CFO and other shared services at nominal or no cost, by offering office space at nominal or no cost as needed, by offering and using all his introduction capital to get us involved with any interesting party he knows and much more.

John put his own skin in the game and it shows.

I wish more VCs acted the same.

Very Smart and Efficient

FF and John Frankel participated in our initial round. The process was efficient and fair. The terms was also "reasonable". what is most interesting about John is his involvement in the social / mobile space and how he can explain the outside view to a very focused CEO or anyone else who will listen. I would recommend FF highly.
