On Jeff Karras

Fund: Levensohn Venture Partners

Posted by no BS -Refreshing experience on 2008-04-28

PUBLIC:

I met Jeff Karras through my participation in various fundraising events in 2007. He had a clear perspective on our market, understood the technology and was genuinely interested in helping us articulate the value of our solution. We had an up-front discussion of potential fits within his portfolio and the type of business models that would fit our technology (component vs. integrator) as well as realistic traction points and funding milestones. I was impressed with his candid advice and willingness to help strategize on potential funding venues, corporate positioning and market potential. It was clear during the course of our first meetings, that our funding needs and the fact that we were at an early stage was not a good fit for Levensohn. Nevertheless, Jeff was interested in the customer traction and funding outcome of our company. His feedback has continuously helped shape our product strategy and investor presentation.
Jeff is a straight shooter, no BS, no ego trip. He is effective and passionate and works very hard to make opportunities a success. Considering all the other VCs we talked to, I found his approach refreshing.
I talked to a few companies funded by Levensohn and several CEOs and CTOs that pitched to them, and all had similarly positive feedback about the partners and their level of integrity. I would recommend this firm, and this particular partner, to any company looking to raise funds.
