Fund: DFJ Mercury

Posted by Anonymous on 2009-03-01

PUBLIC:

For the sectors that they invest in, the DFJ Mercury guys in Houston are the best VC’s to work with. I’ve worked with 30-40 venture capital firms over the years, and Blair Garrou and Dan Watkins are the best at rolling up their shirtsleeves and providing that “value add” you always hear about, but don’t often see from VC’s. I recently presented a project they might be interested in, and as opposed to saying yes, no, or “thanks but no thanks”, Garrou spent over two hours with me helping me refine the business strategy, giving me some new ideas, and introducing us to some excellent contacts that would help us get to market faster. For life sciences, material sciences, and in particular anything having to do with IT, social media, cellular phone apps, the Houston DFJ Mercury office is has more domain experiences than virtually any VC that I’m familiar with in the southern U.S. They are also very nice people – they do a lot with the community, etc. I highly recommend them.
