Summary

The Good

Lots of utility and monetization potential here. I'm sure you have monetization figured out already but as a couple of suggestions you could sell the feedback information to VCs and such or if you created a higher paid tier for the feedback loop for those who register and provide value through a dashboard of feedback over time which the registered users might use in their investor presentations. Lots of possibilities here.
Other +'s are listed above.

The Bad

If I were an investor sustainability would be a concern of mine as it so locked into the start up bubble. Not sure if the longer term plans are to get into G2 Crowd territory where they are taking on the Gartner magic quadrant with crowd sourced reviews but that might be a way to prove out sustainability. Another concern of mine would be how you keep participants engaged over time: you'd need to make the feedback system simpler to use as I'm already getting tired from typing and you'd need to address some sort of reward system.

The Bottom Line

Great service. Overall experience can be improved to drive participation as there is current no motivation for me to come back and contribute once my personal startup has the feedback it needs. I also kind of feel like I'm being forced to make stuff up beyond what I wanted to say per box bc of the character limit. Please review my input on user experience

Missing Features

** take a look at my above feedback, feels a bit punishing to have to type more when I've already said what I came here to say. This can be addressed by items listed in user feedback.

Monetization

Details

First Impression is Excellent

Great interface: Intuitive and most important (IMO) clean!
Great concept: Honestly don't know why I haven't heard of this service before. Great idea and extremely useful service.

Overall Idea is Excellent

Fantastic, not sure why this hasn't been done before. Rather than having to beg and plead with online communities that may or may not be interested you've created a community that cares about startups!

Idea Realization is Good

I like the storybook approach/view of the feedback. It makes the feedback far more valuable as it locks it into a point in time where changes can be evaluated. The interface is great in terms of clean, leading and intuitive design and but a bit bright for me.

User Experience is Average

So far the user experience has been strong. Nothing has made me question direction. As I new to the service I don't know if there is some sort of badge/rewards/rank system for having provided X number of reviews but it might be a nice motivator especially if its a moving value over time (like 3 reviews this month earns you a "super dooper reviewer" badge that goes away once the rolling interval moves on). Just a thought.
The character limit might be too much. Forcing the user to type more than may be useful could be detrimental to the review process. maybe lower it a bit?
Some of categories seem to overlap a bit or maybe could be approached differently. So maybe with each category add a separate list of radio buttons or a slider that lead the user through a thought process - for example:
First impressions: sliders
Clean vs Cluttered
Intuitive vs Intimidating
etc..
Text area for feedback
some folks might struggle to provide useful feedback other than "I like it" and this might be an easy device to walk them through how you want them to think about each category.

Performance is Excellent

Very fast and intuitive. No hiccups or stutters. I'll see if saving my review has any issues but so far so good! not sure what else to say so I'll keep typing....
