Fund: Silver Creek Ventures
Posted by BTiddle on 2013-09-14
Not a name-brand firm, but in Texas, Silver Creek is a stand-up firm with an excellent track record and high quality interactions. Easy to approach, easy to pitch, and very hard to get money from...like most smart VC's. If you do, you are lucky. They stick with you. They nurture. They push. But in an effective non-overbearing way.
MetroPCS is one such example. The first money in, Silver Creek initially found itself in a losing proposition that ended up in the ditch. They stuck by the team, the founder, and reinvested, reupped, and...well...a very nice exit.
I've pitched them several times, but no-go...yet. They are very clear with a not at this time, and have been clear with a pretty much never before. Great feedback. They take the time to tell you why, why they have reservations, what is not resonating. And lots of time to do that. It buys great goodwill.
I'd help these guys any time. And they will help most entrepreneurs.
What more can you ask?
