A Very Good Experience So Far

Fund: Ignition Partners

Posted by Rand Fishkin on 2009-07-01

PUBLIC:

I've written very publicly about my experience with Ignition so far on our blog - http://is.gd/1jHiT - and I'll share the same thoughts here. We were pitched by Ignition to take investment, offered very good deal terms and put the money to use ($1.1 million, a relatively small amount). They've been great to work with - very friendly, accomodating, really care about us as people as well as the company. They've got a good network that's helped us, recruited some smart folks to assist around product direction and seem to genuinely value their entrepreneurs (at least, the other CEOs I've met from their portfolio companies).

While I have not prior experience with VC firms investing (this is my first company as founder/CEO), I'd definitely recommend Ignition to anyone looking and have done so for several friends, who've reported positive experiences as well (even just for chatting/pitches).

Michelle Goldberg is on our board, and to be very honest, I wish there were more people like her in the venture industry. Thoughtful, honest, upfront, but caring and emotionally sensitive as well. From the other VCs that I've met, I'd say that while these are not impossible qualities to find in a VC partner, they're rare, and valuable.
