Value Added Partner

Fund: Sierra Ventures

Posted by sirons65 on 2007-08-24

PUBLIC:

It has been eight months since we closed a Sierra led round. We remain as confident as ever that they are a great fit to help us realize our potential. The partners have strong operational expertise. This made for a very detailed due diligence process. As a clean tech company we were a new type of deal for them. We also had the added complexity of being located in an atypical geography.

However we went with Sierra because it was clear they had done their homework on our space and on our company and they are committed to building companies not just chasing trends. They definitely get involved and if you are looking for a passive investor they may not be a good fit. But if you want an investor that is willing to step in on strategic, exec staffing and other key issues they can add a ton value via their experience and connections. I've worked with over two dozen VC firms and would rate Sierra at the top of the pack. Jeff Loomans and Vimal Patel are the partners assigned to us and both are excellent.
