Fund: El Dorado Ventures
Posted by Jim Fowler - CEO of Jigsaw on 2007-12-10
We have raised $18M in three rounds. EDV led our A and participated in the B and C. Tom Peterson is on my board and has added extreme value to our company, and to me personally. As EDV is a relatively small firm I have come to know all the partners well. What most impresses me is how much they invest in their portfolio companies. They have consultants on staff from most disciplines (finance, engineering, marketing, netops, etc) who are available to portfolio CEOs and help in everything from strategy to interviewing a candidate in their discipline.
This investment team is honest, will tell you like it is, but are strong believers that CEOs need to run the company. I would highly recommend them and am happy to take reference calls (my direct contact info is in Jigsaw).
