Adeo Ressi, founder of TheFunded said that the reasons for VCs to be added to the list is because of threatening TheFunded, pressuring CEOs to write positive reviews about their VC companies, and failing to make newer investments.

Companies on TheFunded’s blacklist will remain in the database but will be flagged.  Firsts that are on the list for not investing recently can submit proof of investment within the last 4 weeks.
