These Guys Rock: Get Funded by Wellington if You Can

Fund: Wellington Partners

Posted by donahuj on 2008-07-10

PUBLIC:

Bart Markus at Wellington served on the board of a virtualization software company I ran which IBM ultimately acquired. Bart and Wellington are beyond high value-add. Bart made several high-profile introductions for our company, introduced a very high-profile x-CEO of a large company as a candidate to join our board, and helped substantially with strategic introductions and major US and Europe-based industry players. Bart is also highly pragmatic and balanced good understanding of operations with a very keen deal sense. The Wellington team was good to deal with from beginning through the M&A process when we were having to work with our VCs on the acquisition terms, escrow, etc. I have maintained a relationship with Bart and would be honored to have him serve as a board member on a future company. Wellington also has a particular skill at taking companies headquartered in Europe and moving operations / headquarters to the US to make the companies more viable for US acquisition or exit scenarios, and Wellington frequently syndicates with top US VC firms such as Kleiner and Sequoia (and has the relationships and track record to be able to do so). If you have the choice, take a deal with Wellington.
