Fund: True Ventures
Posted by tod on 2007-07-21
The TRUE Ventures team is most pro-entrepreneur venture firm that I am aware of. There business model is based on investing in companies early, often seeding the creation of new firms, and they prefer investment structures that align their interests with the entrepreneur from the beginning.
Having gone through multiple financing events side by side with their team, I can attest to their continued interest in working with (rather than against) the entrepreneur.
There is no doubt in my mind that their pro-entrepreneur philosophy is part of a grander vision. As a new firm, they believe that the best way to succeed in the venture business is build a pool of successful entrepreneurs that think the world of you -- as most good deals come from those relationships.
Additionally, I have now worked with Jon Callaghan on the board of two startups and he is smart, upfront, trustworthy and a true mentor. There are only a handful of VCs I would recommend to friend without a single comment, and he is at the top of the list.PRIVATE: Members Only (487 Characters)
