Fund: Spark Capital
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-04-25
I met Rob Go at a networking event a month into founding our company. He was very helpful before and after our pitch to Spark. Even though they passed on us as it was not the right fit, Rob has been helping us a lot. He continues to champion us even after they passed on us. If you are a young company and looking to strengthen your product and your business model, I encourage you strongly to get in touch with Rob. If you want quick and constructive feedback, do pitch to them. Last but not the least, he has a healthy respect for entrepreneurs and full of new ideas.
During our pitch to Todd Dagres, he asked great questions and got back to us within few days.
In the six months since I met Rob and before we made the formal pitch, Rob worked with us in helping us improve the business plan, identifying the gaps in our expertise, helping us with recruiting advisors and last but not the least in improving our service. He would call and email me with new ways of generating revenue and discuss their pros and cons.
He continues to help us by making introductions to other VCs who could potentially be interested in a firm like us.PRIVATE: Members Only
