Long Relationship, Outstanding Experience

Fund: Menlo Ventures

Posted by Mihir Parikh on 2007-12-31

PUBLIC:

I have been extremely fortunate to have worked with Menlo Ventures. In 1984, they funded my first company Asyst Technologies, Inc. and remained patient supporters & investors until I took Asyst public in '93. I stayed on as CEO of Asyst until '02 with revenues of over $500M. Since my 'retirement' from Asyst, I kept in touch with them and they have since funded my second company, Aquest Systems.

My experience with Menlo has been truly outstanding. In particular, DuBose Montgomery has been a true partner in my building Asyst and now in building Aquest. My long and fruitful experience with DuBose & Menlo Ventures, truly dispel the disparaging monikers occasionally given to VCs. In fact, I cannot over-emphasize the support they gave me during the long gestation we had at Asyst and now their continued trust & support in my second time to bat - at Aquest.

I will be pleased to respond to any questions/comments from fellow entrepreneurs via e-mail at mparikh@aquestsystems.com
