Bait and Switch

Fund: Intersouth Partners

Posted by Anonymous on 2010-08-27

PUBLIC:

We had an introduction by another VC. Intersouth received our information, asked a lot of questions and within two weeks made a major investment in a competitor. They were under no obligation to us but it sure felt like we were taken advantage of.

Questionable Status

Fund: Intersouth Partners

Posted by Anonymous on 2010-07-08

PUBLIC:

Have interacted with most everyone at the firm - by and large very good folks. Smart, good questions, personable team, egos in check. Generally pleasant to deal with.

On the pitch process, however, very slow turnaround, slow feedback, lack of clarity on their decision criteria. As compared to over a dozen others that were pitched in same timeframe, they were slowest to move at every step.

We met with John Glushik -- smart guy, definitely gave us his attention, reasonable turnaround time with the eventual "no." Would pitch them again but can't speak to their abilities beyond that.

Solid Fund, Very Conservative

PUBLIC:

Intersouth is one of the biggest funds in the Southeast and has a sterling reputation. Good track record, but extremely conservative and generally unwilling to step out of their areas of expertise.

PUBLIC:

Intersouth has funded me several times, and each time I'm delighted with the process and the people. Particularly John Glushik and Mitch Mumma. John is a super smart and classy guy who will listen before speaking, and offer advise when asked.

Intersouth is a group of smart guys that focus on growing the business, rather than mucking around in the day to day. They are willing to roll their sleeves up and help when asked.

Conservative, Old School

PUBLIC:

The DC partner has a few cronies in other smaller funds. The biggest a*** among them is an ex-attorney who acts like he is an expert on funding. The way these guys are connected is unbelievable. talk about conflict of interest.
