FIRM OVERVIEW: Medium Private VC founded in 2005 based out of Sewickley, United States (US East)

FIRM DESCRIPTION: Meakem Becker Venture Capital was founded in late 2005 by Glen Meakem and Dave Becker. Glen was co-founder, Chairman, and CEO of FreeMarkets, formerly the leading provider of internet deployed software and services for automating the sourcing processes of Global 1000 companies. Dave was FreeMarkets� President and COO. After successfully launching, managing the explosive growth, record breaking IPO, and final sale of FreeMarkets, Glen and Dave founded Meakem Becker Venture Capital to help other entrepreneurs build leading companies. Meakem Becker is currently investing from its first formal fund. Meakem Becker follows a disciplined investment strategy to make early-stage venture investments. We invest in great people with compelling products or services that target large markets. We use our deep experience as well as networks of former employees, customers, service providers, advisors, and investors to help entrepreneurs build and scale their businesses, creating tomorrow�s market leaders. Our core investing team works together from our office in Sewickley, Pennsylvania, just outside of Pittsburgh. Because of our location, we have a particular focus on investing in companies in the Eastern and Midwestern United States. However, we also invest outside of this region when we find attractive opportunities that are particularly well matched with our experience and expertise.

PUBLIC:

Overall the experience was good. Alan Veeck was cordial and receptive. Although they passed he did have some suggestions for tightening up our presentation and has subsequently made us a referral to a local Small Business Development Group.

Experienced Honest Team

Fund: Meakem Becker Venture Capital

PUBLIC:

The MBVC team has a lot of experience building their own company (founders and early employees at FreeMarkets.com). They have been willing to get there hands as dirty as we ask them to but give us our space to run the company.

As far as pitching goes, for companies they pass on they get back to you with more than just a no but will also talk to about why they are passing. For companies they want to invest in, they will move fast.
