Steve Arnold at Polaris

Fund: Polaris Venture Partners

Posted by Anonymous on 2007-08-19

PUBLIC:

Polaris' presence is weighted to the East Coast, but my experience was in Seattle. Steve Arnold was easy to access and schedule. Though our venture was outside the firm's preferred flow of deals and industries, Steve reacted counter-intuitively and took us to the partners meeting and then through 2 weeks of due diligence. The answer then was "no" but the dialogue and assessment was fresh and helpful. I consider Steve to be of the two best VC process managers I have met; the other is Doug Leone at Sequoia. Their doors and minds are open in a way that makes an entrepreneur want to challenge, engage and partner with them.
