Does ending the interview early mean you’re rejected?

I can't think of any other scenario. Has anyone been moved to next round after a short call before?

Hard to say for sure, but we always say in VC a "quick no" is much better than a "slow no." When I'm getting pitched and get to a point where I realize there is no chance we would do a deal I typically try not to waste anyone else's time and politely exit. Sorry though - I'm sure it'll all work out.

You're 'sure it will all work out'? Yeah ok.
