Fairly framework-y and low vision. I had a meeting with Danny that was supposed to be an introductory chat where we got to know each other. It turned into a grilling over a metric that was fairly unimportant for the state of our business. He apparently uses this approach to "see how founders think." It was a lost opportunity to understand a market and thesis more broadly, especially one that is nascent. Danny might be good if you're later stage and looking for growth funding for a known business, but this type of thinking is what keeps Index out of the most cutting-edge Silicon Valley seed deals.

Definitely know your numbers around Danny. We waited around for a few minutes for him to arrive in the room before starting, and he prefaced the meeting saying that he would have to run in about 30 minutes to another meeting. About five minutes into my presentation he got really fixated on one slide and grilled me hard with a bunch of questions on one particular metric. He requested more in-depth analytics which I had to pull up on the spot and spent the next 20 minutes talking about how other companies he has seen/are in his portfolio had better ways of measuring and tracking metrics than I did. He
did give some pretty good feedback which we implemented but ended up leaving the meeting before I could finish the rest of my presentation which was really awkward for everybody else in the room.
