Our Expert VCs are a selected cohort among the 300+ investors on our investor base. They are typically early-stage investors that have an expertise with Pre-Seed, Seed, and Series A companies (some of our Expert VCs also invest in and have expertise in Series B+ companies). Collectively, our Expert VCs cover the majority of company sectors and industries.
What the Expert VCs are saying
"The nature of pre-investment discussions are usually very different from those post-investment. NeonVest facilitates constructive, post-investment like conversations between founders and investors."
- Eddie Lee: Principal at White Star Capital
What the startups are saying
"We were matched and introduced to VC funds, family offices, and angel investors that took a keen interest in engaging with us. It was also also easy to screen out the matches so that we were focused on the right opportunities."
- Jeffrey Liu: Founder of Jenfi (Y-Combinator backed company)
“I enjoy meeting and advising the companies introduced by NeonVest. I have advised these startups on topics including product launch, scaling, customer acquisition and fundraising."
- Phil Nadel: Co-Founder and Managing Director at Forefront Venture Partners (formerly Barbara Corcoran Venture Partners)
"For founders, half the battle is often who you know. NeonVest accelerates the process of building the right VC team by matching you with exactly the mentors you need for your business. Investors see thousands of companies in various stages of their lifecycles. They know what works and what doesn't, and can help you surpass your goals as well as overcome obstacles. I couldn't recommend the Expert VC Program more for all founders. The ROI is incalculable."
- Suchit Tuli: Founder of Quantime
"NeonVest is providing an invaluable service to startups by connecting them with investors, who serve as mentors. Startups get an inside-look in to how an investor thinks about a business and receive constructive feedback on necessary steps to propel their business forward. The ability for startups to gain 1-on-1 access to investors who cater to their specific needs is game-changing."
- Joanne Wong: General Partner at Redds Capital
"Connecting with seasoned mentors who have a genuine interest in what we are doing was very valuable. We received constructive feedback in a supportive environment that allowed us to ask all of the questions we have been wanting to ask of those who have sat on both sides of the table."
- David Cooper: President of Keyport
"Terrific platform for startups to get targeted advice from successful investors, many of whom have their own significant entrepreneurial experiences. A tremendous ROI for startups during one of their most crucial stages."
- Naveen Choudary: Partner at Eastwind Global Partners (making early-stage investments in the AI, Blockchain, Cloud-computing sectors); formerly Managing Director of Tech Investing at Shumway Capital Partners (Tiger Management-backed fund)
“NeonVest provides numerous benefits. We received instant feedback and advice from investors who were specifically curated to our company's stage and domain. NeonVest also provides a methodical and thorough channel to socialize your business to potential investors while fundraising.”
- Edward Hill: Founder of CausEcho
“It's been a good opportunity to connect with companies not typically in my deal flow pipeline and provide expertise to a different profile of company.”
- Matt Weinberg: Principal at Max Ventures
“The Neonvest mentorship/network propels companies higher through connection with top experts exceptional in investment and business operations. Their strategists assess and understand next priority tasks to provide a push in the right direction. Each meeting has been valuable to advance our commercial marketplace and our network is stronger through these connections.”
- Dr. Marien Zanyk: Founder of Zaneez (Ankle Stone product)
