And if you are “perfect” in your delivery, you still have to get over the 90% error rate of the VC.

    What you should have done is keep in touch with updates on your progress. Because you obviously feel that both sides spent enough effort and time on the failed funding attempt that you feel he owes you all the hate you have for him.
