I was first introduced to Openview when one of their analysts cold called us. We were not actively looking for VC money at the time but had started to consider a future investment. They understood our technology and model faster and better than almost any VC.
Openview is a smaller fund, focused on contributing strategic value to high-growth stage companies. Many firms pay lip-service to "strategic value", these guys jump in and really deliver it.
Ultimately we outgrew their target investment size before finalizing plans to raise money. They've continued to deliver strategic value in the form of great advice and networking ... even though we didn't do a deal together. Impressive.PRIVATE: Members Only
