Fund: QUALCOMM Ventures
Posted by sufi on 2010-08-19
I pitched to them several years ago and the cycle was incredibly fast. They stumbled upon us at a tradeshow and were very good about following up and inviting us to San Diego to make a pitch. From first on-site meeting to termsheet was 1.5 months and from first on-site meeting to cash-in-bank was 2 months, which is INCREDIBLY fast.
Since they invested they've been very, very, very useful in helping build the business. From great support at trade shows (if you attend the 2 major mobile conferences, CTIA and MWC, being in their pavilion is HUGELY valuable) to helping with actual sales & BD. Plus they opened all doors for us within Qualcomm and we've had some significant strategic deals for distribution struck as a result.
The entire team is incredibly smart, efficient, and no-bullshit in their approach. This is the smartest, most practical set of investors I've worked with in the strategic VC arena, bar none. My business has enormously benefitted from their support.PRIVATE: Members Only (1870 Characters)
