Fund: Accel Partners
Posted by RalfM on 2007-09-18
We pitched with one of my German clients (Web 2.0 business) to Accel Partners in London.
While Heikki Makijarvi (Venture Development at Accel London) has a difficult to pronounce Finn name (you better practice before you meet him ;-) is he a very smart and nice guy. Heikki has quickly setup a productive meeting with Kevin Comolli (Managing General Partner at Accel) a very experienced VC. Heikki and Kevin assessed the opportunity and drilled deeper into the subject. Even while they finally decided to not invest, gave they us some hints of how to better bring our message across and informed us honestly about their decision logic.
