Lightspeed India

Fund: Lightspeed Venture Partners

Posted by beaupeep on 2007-10-26

PUBLIC:

Do other VCs hear your ideas too, even when they're at advanced stage of due diligence with your competitor" :)

Talked to a partner in India about our company. He was very attentive & seemed to know all about the space, which is rare. Little did I know that he was just gathering all the competitive info from me, while closing a round with our competitor. The announcement came 10 days later that they funded our competition. He could have simply told us "No Meeting". But then that would be too ethical" :)

PUBLIC:

Jeremy is a good guy: he is always generous with his time, provides valuable feedback and he has a ton of real world operational experience- unlike some others you meet around the Valley.

Ajit is Prompt

Fund: Lightspeed Venture Partners

PUBLIC:

Setting up a meeting with Ajit was a good experience since he took pains to have his staff co-ordinate the meeting (especially since I was flying in from Asia for a limited time).
