    Easy to use, detailed reviews, let's me know what I'm in for.



    This is fantastic. Just found this after a terrible interaction with a VC and found out I was not the only one. I will now be researching all VCs I don't know prior to chatting with them here.

    Amy Spurling has used this product for one day.

Really important and necessary service for a startup world. Respect! I would suggest adding something like "Divorce and its consequences", if this happened. The founders need to know how investors behave in such cases. Is it fair, dignified, meanly or absolutely disgusting?

Ok, we've just launched a product on PH, now it's time to run through the list of investors :) If you manage to maintain a high-quality data, it should be a very useful service.
