Smart but a Smallish Sweet Spot

Fund: Altos Ventures

Posted by Anonymous on 2008-03-25

PUBLIC:

My experience with Altos is that they're a really strong group, but that they have a pretty small sweet spot in terms of size of deal, stage of company and valuation. It feels like on one hand they need clear traction, but on the other don't want to come in too late. A third of a $6m to $9m round seems like their favorite bite.

As far as I can tell they like to syndicate their deals (some recent ones appear to be Outspark with Doll, GuardianEdge with Cardinal and Cargill, Billeo with Claremont Creek and Pacifica Fund - it looks like they were the primary on Provade.)

Overall they seem like a great group - but make sure you get a clear sense of their sweet spot before investing too much time.
