pieter abbeel, co-founder at Covariant.ai Shelley / 11.2 were one of the first we spoke with, as I'd already met her several times before, and it was clear she is really on top of the AI space, both technically and business-wise. We were very excited they decided to participate in our seed round, and have been extremely happy working with them since. Shelley has been exceptionally helpful (I realize all VCs will claim this, but you'll want to reference check, because intending to be helpful and having the time/connections to be helpful can be two different things. Shelley helped us with over 20 customer/partner leads (and counting), which has been critical for our velocity at covariant.ai. She works harder than most other VCs and really appreciates what it takes to build advanced AI/robotics. We'd have her as investor again in a heartbeat!
Ravi Raj, cEo at passage.ai Shelley is a great believer in AI and machine learning. Her insights, interest and passion for the space have benefited us tremendously. She has opened doors for us at several large enterprises and made intros to some great partners. We are so glad we picked 11.2 Capital as an investor!
Dan Perez, cEo at hinge health we were struggling to recruit a CFO, so we asked Yizhen for some help on our accounts, and he spent like 40-50hours over 2 weeks basically filling in as a CFO to get our accounts in order. and he's continuing to do it. Shelley and Yizhen are very well connected in Silicon Valley, and they've made plenty of investor and customer intros. So as you grow, it's really nice to think about the next few rounds, and an investor who can connect you with follow-on investors in Silicon Valley (NEA, DFJ, Kleiner Perkins, Sequoia, etc).
Yu Xu, cEo at TIGERGRAPH ShellEy was crucial in introducing and helping the company closing our early customers, and introducing new investors. She has deep technical background and is genuinely inquisitive in how complex underlying technology works, which I believe helps her to help companies more effectively. I’m grateful to have ShellEy as our early stage investor.
sean byrnes, founder and cto at flurry SHELLEY HAS A GREAT INSTINCT FOR FINDING GREAT NEW COMPANIES AND HELPING THOSE WHERE SHE INVESTS. SHE WAS THE FIRST VC TO CONTACT ME AFTER WE STARTED FLURRY, BACK BEFORE ANYONE KNEW WHAT WE WERE WORKING ON.
curt becker, ceo at molecular assemblies I’m grateful to have had the chance to do business with Shelley. She has been a great advocate and opened many doors for us. Perhaps more importantly, Shelley asks deep probing questions that make me think about my business in new and unique ways.
andy chou, co-FOUNDER and cto at coverity Shelley invests in companies with strong technical foundations. She believes that new technologies can change the world for the better - in the hands of the right team at the right time. If she sees this in your company, you’re in luck.

charles cadieu, ceo at Baylabs Shelley's trust in technical founders and understanding of the process to mitigate technical risk made 11.2 Capital an ideal partner on our journey.
