FIRM OVERVIEW: Large Private VC founded in 1984 based out of Menlo Park, USA (US West)
FIRM DESCRIPTION: ONSET helps transform great ideas into successful businesses. We can partner with you at the earliest stages, getting in the trenches with you to help identify markets, build business models, and find the ideal management team. And if you're an experienced business ready to take a leap forward, ONSET can provide you with the resources and perspectives to help make that happen. With over $700 million under management, seven successful funds launched, and over 100 companies backed since 1984, our approach is proven. It's our active collaboration that makes us different—we call it "venture craftsmanship"—and it's why so many entrepreneurs choose to work with ONSET again and again.

We worked very closely with John and the team at ONSET for over a month, and though we didn't end up working together, John and his team were exceptional throughout the process. They asked insightful and thought-provoking questions and their insights and feedback directly improved our company's pitch, and helped us as we moved forward tremendously. In fact, following some of their recommendations was instrumental in helping our company secure financing and eventually an acquisition partner. Excellent firm and even better people. PRIVATE:
