Fund: Samsung Ventures Investment Corporation

Posted by Ash on 2008-04-21

PUBLIC:

Pitched them on a hardware venture that would have been strategic to them as a capitve VC. Unlike our other captive experiences the dialog was thoughtful and exceedingly helpful to us in reconsidering some business model changes we had been debating over. They passed on the deal but exhibited clear reasoning and were receptive to hearing from us again should we engage our model differently.

For an early stage first-time-around-the-block CEO this experince was very benefical.

To Be Avoided

Fund: Samsung Ventures Investment Corporation

Posted by Anonymous on 2009-03-19

PUBLIC:

Use extreme caution with this fund. They have lots of money, and few people to put it to work. They attempt to appear to want tech deals, but follow the dollar – someone in Korea above the guy you’re talking to needs to be interested in your technology for you to have a chance. Given a choice, avoid these guys, particularly Bill Byun.
