Fund: Altos Ventures
Posted by Talk Life Team on 2008-11-06
We met with Ho today to discuss our plan to get "fundable" - meaning showing traffic / revenue. He immediately understood our concept in detail, gave us some valuable insights (proving you have organic traffic is king when pitching), and was having fun brainstorming some marketing strategies.
Ho Nam was willing to listen and provide insight even when we all knew we weren't in the position to be funded right at this moment. Other VCs may have blown us off at this time.
Some background: We met Ho at the Silver and Gold Venture conference in Reno (10/21/2008), had a quick conversation and decided to finish it this week, being down in Palo Alto for the Tesla networking event.PRIVATE: Members Only (378 Characters)
