Smart Guys, Know B2 C Very Well

Fund: BV Capital

Posted by fearless on 2012-07-17

PUBLIC:

They didn't invest in us but their partners and associates know the B2C space really well. They offered some pretty good advice on a metrics level (I hate it when investors wax strategery with no granularity) and offered an introduction to someone else. I pitched to Thomas G. and one of his associates Brendan. Both gave us a good amount of ear-time and delved into the metrics of customer acquisition.

Very Slow Response, No Feedback

Fund: BV Capital

Posted by Joschik on 2008-09-14

PUBLIC:

Did a number of calls, had promises of a return call from an assistant, never happened, then got a No email with no reasons; when I asked for any feedback I got the same email again. Poor.

Steer Clear of These Guys

Fund: BV Capital

Posted by Anon. on 2008-08-27

PUBLIC:

Pitched them, got terms, didn't like them, so they invested in a competitor. Be very very careful not to divulge too much or else you could end up regretting it..

Great Experience!

Fund: BV Capital

Posted by nostradamus on 2008-06-11

PUBLIC:

They have focused on new media and Internet for a long time and know this space better than any one I've ever encountered. They're also unique because they have strong networks in Europe. If you're doing something in another space, then I wouldn't bother trying to get their attention.

I've worked with BV on 2 companies over the last 10 years, most recently as a member of the senior management of one of their consumer Internet portfolio companies. Mathias was on the board and was incredibly helpful in building and selling the company. I've been in M&A banking and corporate development in my previous life for 10 years. Mathias comes across as low key, but I've rarely come across a more savvy deal maker. He's also a great strategist and operates with the highest integrity. I would no doubt work with them again on any of my ventures.

PUBLIC:

Understand consumer internet better than anyone I know - andI knew quite few consumer Internet Founders and VCs. I thought I knew it better than anyone else, this guy beat me. He really gets it!!

I think they are sort of 'done' with VC world thi and on their way out to other things...

Its difficult to write reviews of people we've worked closely with over the last few years. The title says it all.

Awesome Potential

Fund: BV Capital

Posted by Anonymous on 2007-03-15

PUBLIC:

BV has some great potential as a venture fund... if they only can take their fund more (and less) seriously. Ready on...
