Fund: Crossbar Capital
Posted by eladbaron on 2007-10-10
I know Charlie Federman (in an investor capacity) for 8 years. He was a managing director at a VC firm invested in my previous company (Whale Communications, acquired by Microsoft). He continued to fund my current startup, BitWine. I also got to know his partner, Warren Haber during the past year.
I believe a VC can only be measured in tough times. And there is always a period of tough times at a startup life cycle. Charlie has proven that he can stay truly supportive also when the going gets tough. And from my experience, that's very hard to come by.
Charlie and Warren are very well connected in the industry and never hesitate to leverage these connections for the benefit of their portfolio.
Charlie has a good macro view of the industry and current trends, and never tries to micro manage the CEO. He has a good investment banking background that is very valuable in M&A scenarios.
