Expect an Observation Period?

Fund: Ascend Venture Group

Posted by Anonymous on 2007-10-05

PUBLIC:

Ascend's pros are a) their focus on a specific vertical (education, which can be hard to find), b) their stated process (which they also follow), c) a smart team of people who are also generally good folks. They are also fairly prompt in getting back to you.

Their cons are those typical of VCs - more risk averse that you would expect, and a little less deep in the earlier stages of early stage. You might expect them to observe you for a while before investing, especially if you don't fit their criteria exactly.

They also seem fairly active in bringing together people in their target industry, which is a plus.
