"Doug and Vast are the perfect start up investor. They’re thoughtful, available anytime for advice, and trust the direction and vision of the founders. Most importantly, they are as committed and consistent with our team of 100 employees as they were when we were just 4. We love working with Vast.".
"Vast’s knowledge, energy and network helped shaped Moat’s foundation and strategy from the beginning. They invested in Moat’s seed round, and realized Moat’s vision and potential immediately. And Aniq’s contributions as Moat’s President were invaluable — including building relationships to close many of Moat’s largest clients, and hiring a majority of the Moat team."
"Aniq, Doug and Vast’s ongoing contributions to me and ASAPP have been invaluable from the start. We discussed ASAPP’s vision before launch. They have referred customers, employees, investors and advisors. They pre-emptively offered to invest — and did — in each of ASAPP’s rounds. And they are always available with helpful advice."
Doug and the Vast team were early supporters in my first business (Recombine), and they have been consistently incredible partners in helping to build my next venture (Phosphorus). At the core of their value has been the trusting relationship we’ve built. I’ve been able to rely on the Vast team for real input on meaningful decisions, useful introductions, and an ability to empathize with the businesses’ needs—not just as investors, but as fellow entrepreneurs. My companies have been incredibly lucky to have them on our cap tables.
