Good, Bad and Not So Ugly

Fund: Tallwood Venture Capital

PUBLIC:

It is hard to assess this firm. On the one hand you will find noone with more integrity and honesty. Their main partner is perhaps the most successful entreprenuer and angel investor there is in the valley. Trouble is that they seem to think what worked for him ten years ago is what works for everyone else now, and they have very specific (and dated) expectations as to how a company must be run. Still, they are one of the best if you are looking for a semiconductor related VC. Just make sure you have alignment in goals. Also, you will not find another VC thatis more loyal and more supportive, whether you agree with their goals for the company or not. They have not fully tranformed from an agel mode to a typical VC operation though, which could be good or bad, depending on how you look at it.
