Fund: Scale Venture Partners
Posted by a.j. on 2009-11-17
I was connected with Sharon through a fellow board member of hers. Sharon was reputably on of the most knowledgeable and sophisticated persons in the digital media space with an established network of successful and innovative individuals.
I had an opportunity to discuss my start up and potential exit strategies with Sharon on a call, during which she provided first-hand insight on market trends and valuations of internet lead gen companies, even narrowing the scope to the pertinent industry. She was attentive as I outlined the growth model and showed great interest in the company's progress and direction.
In a subsequent meeting with her, Sharon further elaborated on growth opportunities and proposed synergies that she was willing to facilitate among her own network of companies. On her own initiative, she followed through on these connections, and maintained communication with me as my company was rapidly grown and consequently acquired.
The widening of Sharon's circle of entrepreneurs in digital media is a testament to her versatile intelligence, as well as her willingness to share her knowledge openly with others in the industry.PRIVATE: Members Only
