Great Experience Know What Kepha Is/N't

Fund: Kepha Partners

Posted by Anonymous on 2014-08-14

PUBLIC:

Got to a "yes" with Jo and Eric @ Kepha - and ended up going with them. Fairly solid terms, not too painful of a process (e.g., pitching, diligence). Jo and Eric are quite different from each other but bring distinct insight and value to an early stage company. Jo asks great (and tough) questions and Eric's experience as an operator (enterprise software) has been valuable.

They run a lean/small shop, carrying a relatively large portfolio, so, there are not a lot of spare cycles for roll your sleeves up-type help. For us, this was not a deal breaker.

Net: a great experience with a firm that fit our stage and needs.

Cliche VC Non Responsiveness

Fund: Highland Capital Partners

Posted by maddog on 2014-08-13

PUBLIC:

Cliche zero response VC behavior after meeting and pitching....literally... no response post meeting, not even an email.

Intro was made via a solid contact (highly connected to their team) yet after pitch meeting we got no response, highly unprofessional behavior and massive waste of time.

This....is why large funds who do not value entrepreneur relationships across SV will cease to exist in the coming years.

Very Transparent, Easy Pitch

Fund: S3 Ventures

Posted by zerp on 2014-08-07

PUBLIC:

Not going forward with firm but amazing professionalism. Rajiv Bala is a top notch player. I can't comment on an operating arrangement but they seem to really be head and shoulders above many of the other Austin firms.

Avoid These Guys at All Costs

Fund: Tech Coast Angels

Posted by Anonymous on 2014-07-11

PUBLIC:

If you are in the startup business and don't care about product, creating value, or your company achieving long term goals, TCA is right for you. First they only invest in ideas so that are so safe because they have been de-risked by several other companies doing the same thing who were successful years ago. Meaning they will encourage you to sell your company by flipping it to a competitor in about three to five years.

They want as much of your company as they can get to cover their asses in heavy dilution that will not occur. Do not fall for their game. They don't do due diligence even though they say they do. All there decision are based on people who are related to them or know nothing about your industry. You are better off going up to Silicon Valley and finding someone who believes in you.

In short if you want to change the world look elsewhere, if you want to be a millionaire and will do anything to become one (including selling your soul, your company, and your dignity), these guys will be your best friend.

Great Partner, Poor Fund

Fund: Teuza Management & Development

Posted by Anonymous on 2014-06-11

PUBLIC:

My company was scouted by one of the junior partners, Yakir, who was very interested and showed great involvement and zeal for our particular field of work. He setup a meeting between us and more senior members of the board who pulled a last minute no-show.

A few days later came the message that our industry is out side the fund's field of interest.

All in all, Yakir, whom we actually meet, was great. Insightful and to the point. Teuza the company however, were far less impressive.
