Fund: Accel Partners
Posted by Anonymous on 2007-08-17
I have met Accell on both sides of the pond and there is a clear divide -- with the UK on the losing end (soft ethics).
As an example, Accel still publisizes the hiring of the X-CEO of Sonera (incumbant operator from Finland). He left in a wave of shame - I beleive he even served jail time for his activities at Sonera. Bad corporate culture spreads -- I know them to back a company in Europe that is far from scrupulous and I oft wonder how far they go for deals. I would be leary of the UK branch.
US has some really good people - some of the best I've met in the industry.PRIVATE: Members Only
