Make Sure You Have Another Lead Investor

Fund: Intel Capital

Posted by andres on 2008-01-29

PUBLIC:

IC usually invests with a leading VC. They don't usually lead. In our case, they made an exception and led our post-angel rounds. They did put some structure into the company (monthly board meetings and so on) but at a big operating cost (i.e. lot's of focus on preparing board meetings and not on the business).

Intel is a big name; but in my experience their capital arm is not on par with other perceived investors.

Tough to Navigate

Fund: Intel Capital

Posted by Anonymous on 2007-10-12

PUBLIC:

A real mixed bag. Very difficult to negotiate with, lack of focus, and not very insightful about what it takes to operate a business. On the bright side, they can come through with great introductions. The challenge, if you decide to and are able to close the investment, is to manage them in the direction you need.

Difficult to Work With

Fund: Intel Capital

Posted by Anonymous on 2007-06-08

PUBLIC:

A lot of venture firms have negative things to say about Intel's ability to add value. I've not found this to be the case, they can and will help you. However, they have an approach that isn't well suited for early stage companies. Save them for the later rounds.
