Pitched, but Never Connected to Actual Business Idea

Fund: Lightspeed Venture Partners

Posted by Anonymous on 2008-12-26

PUBLIC:

Pitched early stage deal to Ajit Deora. He was attacking every sentence but couldn't pin us down for the simple reason that we had answers to all his concerns. Interesting experience but not very helpful.

Good Pitch

PUBLIC:

LSVP and Jeremy are probably the most active investors in the social gaming space. He took our meeting on a reference, was very courteous and provided us with helpful feedback.

Initial Pitch

Fund: Lightspeed Venture Partners

Posted by jmenge on 2008-01-08

PUBLIC:

Initial pitch went well. Andrew read our business plan, asked good questions for an industry that LVP is not currently invested in.
