I worked with Alison while she was at IOC with Evan Jafa and Tony B. Although she was definitely the nicest partner at IOC, she was not very helpful. The advice she offered our team was not very useful and seemed to be recycled from other companies she worked on. I would not put too much time or effort into this relationship if you are solely looking for an investment. She might be able to make a few valuable introductions but I never saw anything productive come out of our relationship.
