Fast, Direct and Helpful. High Quality Team with Great Network.

Fund: Merus

Posted by natd on 2010-10-11

PUBLIC:

At the first meeting I pitched two partners at Merus and the second meeting, pitched all 3. The Merus team gave me great feedback and advice during and after both pitches. The partners are highly intelligent, insightful and direct and I found them to be consummate professionals in all my interactions with them.

In terms of pitch process, it was quick and efficient. Merus let me know within days of each meeting whether they wanted to move forward and what the next steps would be, what areas to cover, what materials to prepare, etc.

They did not fund my company (startup vs. lifestyle) and while that wasn't news I wanted to hear, they were spot-on with their prediction of my business trajectory.

We have stayed in contact and the Merus team provides me with great informal advice and help to this day. To the negative commenter out there, I want to highlight this again -- this team has been supporting me as an entrepreneur even though they did NOT invest. Of all the VC's I've met and pitched over the past few years, the partners at Merus stand above the crowd due to their honesty, efficiency and intelligence. These are the type of people you want in your corner.

I give them my highest recommendation.
