Good Business Management Background

Fund: Vinci Capital

Posted by Anonymous on 2009-03-25

PUBLIC:

A year ago I started to work as CEO with Vinci on my board. All along the way they've shown a strong ability to listen and understand the life of the enterprise. They've supported long term vision and investment, despite the economic crisis. This maturity stands out in a very positive light when compared to other VCs I've worked with in previous roles.

In addition, Vinci have proactively and extensively offered their network to introduce the company to potential customers.

I've found the partners at Vinci to be strong business companions, even in this difficult business climate.

Happy Ending

Fund: Vinci Capital

We have gone the full circle with Vinci as our main VC. Our company took a long time to breakeven, and it required some dratic decisions and restructuring to bring it to the stage it became attractive for a major US computer manufacturer to purchase us. In the process, Vinci was tough at times, helped to execute some painful decisions, was a main mover in structuring a 3 way merger, and most of all stuck with us through the good times and the bad periods, supporting the Company over the 8 years it took to make a profitable exit.

On the Same Ship

PUBLIC:

It has been a year now that we did Series A with Vinci. I wanted to be well past honeymoon to post.

So far so very good. My board configuration is one with Vinci, another large European VC, a neutral director, and two founders. The dynamics of the board is very good. So I can't comment on crisis situation. I am fortunate enough not to have had any so far.

I found Vinci very supportive. Finding the right balance between giving the messages straight while being supportive. Providing support while leaving large freedom and trusting to the CEO. Even though they do not have much experience in Medtech (they have a partner for the specifics of LS), their industrial approach is very healthy. They understand enough the real entrepreneurial/industrial life to make the difference between pseudo-issues and real issues. Last but ot least they have the sensitivity to respect the soft aspects and balance of a team.

So yes, worked for me very well. I think Vinci is above many VCs I have come across.
