Fund: Intel Capital
Posted by jerwin on 2008-08-05
Intel Capital has its issues, specifically the feeling that anything they learn while attending your board meetings is taken right back to Intel and disseminated. They do not take board seats so they do not have any fiduciary responsibility per say.
On the very positive side, they provided more value to me as a CEO than the other VC firms because of their 'Intel Technology Days' where they arrange for the CEO to meet with and present to the Sr Exec management of key key companies. We had several key partnerships started in this way.
The pros outweigh the negatives.PRIVATE: Members Only (483 Characters)
