Fund: Atlas Venture
Posted by Chairman & CEO on 2007-08-20
Working with the partners at Atlas Ventures London was a pure pleasure across many dimensions. The team offered consistent support and solid business advise throughout my tenure.
At the Board level, Atlas helped establish strong governance procedures, fair and balanced compensation guidelines, drove several key relationships, catalyzed our sales model, and helped sooth rather strained Board dynamics. They are very well connected and quite market savvy. As a shareholder, Atlas was very reasonable, rational, and responsive.
Large and in part due to their support and wherewithal, the company successfully restructured and exited to everyone's benefit. Atlas was there though the thick and thin, which is something every entrepreneur needs to consider at length when selecting funding sources. Markets will always have ups and downs - having a sophisticated and experienced venture partner can make a huge difference in the end result.
I highly recommend working with Atlas to any entrepreneur.PRIVATE: Members Only
