Fund: Siemens Venture Capital
Posted by Anonymous on 2009-01-09
I have interacted with the Boston office (Anupendra Sharma, Andrew Jay & Ed Chan) and each interaction has been very positive. The guys are very professional and responsive. They have an above ordinary knowledge of the Life Sciences Industry as a whole.
They understood our technology and business model right off the bat. Fielded good questions, rendered honest feedback and good criticism. ..did not waste our time. Unfortunately our technology fell under a sector which is outside of Seimens' strike zone. Refreshingly enough, they followed up with us on more than one occasion and offered cogent insights. I don't know of many VCs that would take time out of their schedules to advise a company that they would not invest in or in one that fell beyond their sector..
They also seem to have good grasp over early stage issues and founder challenges...(an indication of how they would be as an investor and/or Board member). All in all, great group (at least the ones that I met).PRIVATE: Members Only (59 Characters)
