Spoke with the managing partner who stated he would reply to me within three days, that was 6 months ago and despite me reaching out multiple times, he has never responded.

Actively stay away. We spoke to them about a POC fund and they moved the goalposts on every occasion, firstly they wanted to see 10k MRR, when we hit that, the problem was that we dealt with B2C, once we addressed that and changed models, they had no interest in our sector.
Worked alongside Huw Sparkes. He was very honest from the forefront about what traction would be clear which is rare amongst VC's. He was a very genuine guy who is always happy to hear about progress and gives ideas. By far the best VC we have dealt with.
I have been in touch with Swarnali Mitra whom I met at a VC panel event. She's been very responsive and provided good feedback on opportunities I've shared with her.
I've pitched to Ricardo at Target Global across two of our rounds. Initially he and his team are very approachable, expressing a high level of enthusiasm on the first call. They express a good understanding too of the industry and solution you are tackling, leaving you to qualify them as a "good fit". Following the initial call however, Ricardo requests more and more information, whilst leaving the door open to being informed on round progress. Having requested again and again for a "no" via emails and calls, Ricardo does not answer that specific request, and instead keeps you thinking he might be interested in the round right until the end.
Experienced team, have the right skills to pitch to someone who relates to the product you're building. Generally very swift to respond and even swifter to make decisions, did have to chase for a decision rather than having someone pro-actively reaching out but that's the same with most.
