Fidelity were an A round investor and participated also in later rounds. Simon Clark is on our Board and has always been a strong challenger of company strategy (good), but has also engaged with operational pragmatism when circumstances demanded it (really good!). Their profile and access to large client/partner/acquirer organisations can be very useful ..... these are available to you as a portfolio company but they are not forced on you - they recognise that it is management's job to run the company, not the investors!
Have enjoyed working with Simon and his team and would do so again without a qualm.PRIVATE: Members Only (200 Characters)
