Pleasant, Attentive Pitch but Unresponsive

Fund: OVP Venture Partners

Posted by How_Matters on 2010-10-06

PUBLIC:

Pitched to Mark and Chad. Very relaxed atmosphere, they paid attention (no texting or email thank goodness!) and asked reasonable questions that showed they were listening. They offered some advice regarding how I could have made the pitch better, including "We can see why this would be a nice-to-have, but what would make it a must-have?". Fair question. The meeting ended with them saying they would consider next steps and get back to me. I followed up with thank you email and several "must-have" examples. Weeks went by with no word. Sent another email asking for thumbs up/down. Weeks later no word.

To those of us active in raising capital, the lack of response and going dark is expected behavior in the VC world. It's still disappointing, especially when you meet with folks who actually seem to have decent people skills...
