Fund: OpenView Venture Partners

Posted by Pete Gombert on 2010-08-26

PUBLIC:

As a three time entrepreneur and someone who has raised a fair amount of capital, I have become slightly jaded when it comes to VC's who pitch themselves as "really rolling up their sleeves and helping their portfolio companies. I typically take it as part of the value added portion of why one funds money is better than another.

The same was true when we were raising our last round of capital and started talking to OpenView. They were pitching us on their difference from traditional VC's because of their operating experience and OpenView Labs. Ultimately we decided to move forward with OpenView and I have been simply amazed at how they actually walk the walk.

George Roberts is the partner on the board and Scott Maxwell participates frequently with our company. The value that these two have added along with Labs, has been really amazing. These guys genuinely believe that through operational excellence their portfolio companies will ALL win. They don't believe that Venture has to be a home run business, they firmly believe that all of their portfolio companies will be winners, and if they treat all of them like they have treated Balihoo, then they just might be right.
