Fund: Levensohn Venture Partners

Posted by tom@rapt.com on 2008-06-03

PUBLIC:

Kip Sheeline was the seed investor in Rapt, a media infrastructure company recently acquired by Microsoft. As companies like ours frequently go, there were terrible, white-knuckle moments, followed by momentary bursts of elation, followed mostly by more white-knuckle moments. Kip was there for all of them, and never lost his conviction that we could ultimately win. He was relentless in his efforts to help us perfect our business model and market focus.

As a firm, Levensohn was a seasoned investor that didn't run away when other firms bravely turned their tails and fled. (Literally, we had funds exit their position during the build-out of our company.) While I didn't have enough of an opportunity to work with Pascal, my impression of they guy is that he's an extremely thick-skinned, consummately rational investor. Jeff Karras participated in several of our Board meetings along the way with intelligent, action-oriented questions.
