Semil is an tremendously helpful investor and advisor to Instacart. He has a rare combination of operational experience, investor savvy and casual attitude. He's been extremely easy to work with -- something we value as busy entrepreneurs!
Semil is a thoughtful advisor and knows mobile product inside and out- as an entrepreneur in the mobile space, I feel fortunate to have him as a sounding board and can always rely upon him for useful, productive feedback.
Semil was able to identify the value in our product early on, and committed to an investment in our company before others saw the same value. He's been a champion of mobile in a way that demonstrates not only his excitement of the space, but also of his deep knowledge of both product and investment trends.
If mobile is part of your business strategy, Semil is a great guy to know. With deep knowledge in the space, his value covers direct advice/knowledge, immediate introductions to talent and prospective investors/partners in the space.
Semil's a G. He's been there for us throughout and I can't say enough good things about him. There are times when I've texted him close to midnight and heard back from within minutes - that's the kind of support you need as an entrepreneur. And it really helps that his radar is pretty spot on too. We're lucky to be working with Semil.
