Jim brings crisp and cogent thinking to every step of the process, from initial pitch to ongoing board call and strategy meetings. He is the definition of smart money and a value-add investor!
Jim is a great VC because he does the work. He doesn't hide behind email. If you have a question he'll get back to you. In fact, if you want to meet him, he's not going to make you manipulate one of his friends or portfolio CEOs for an intro: he's approachable. If he's at an event he doesn't hide on the sidelines with a glass of white wine, he'll head right to the tables and start talking to startups. He has a clear and easy to understand investment strategy so you're not left guessing if you're a good fit. He's humble and smart which is a kick ass combination.
