Fund: D. E. Shaw Venture Group

Posted by Anonymous on 2007-08-15

PUBLIC:

I had a really positive experience working with Andre Turenne for four years when he was at his last venture firm, before he left for D.E. Shaw. He lead the original recap round for the company that I had just joined as CEO, so we basically took it on together. For those four years, he was very supportive, passionate about what our company did, and helped us through many mine fields.

Andre is smart, experienced, and willing to contribute. He is "entrepreneur friendly" which means he won't waste your time with trivia, but engages in meaningful ways to help you and the company.

Given he is helping build up D. E. Shaw's venture arm, this might be a good chance for a start-up seeking investment and a strong board member to get both in one package.
