Great Experience Pitch and Beyond

Fund: Opus Capital

Posted by landceo on 2011-11-17

PUBLIC:

We did a fundraising this summer. We are a veteran team with a solid exit behind us, so fundraising for venture #2 went fast and we only pitched folks we knew well and thought could add value. Opus was on our list, as we know few of the key partners well, and they are super smart. I appreciate that (most?) of their partners are actual operators - have worked in industry before - so their questions and opinions are steeped in data, which is hugely refreshing. The other benefit of having VCs that have worked in industry is that they have friends / connections / intros that could be hugely valuable to you. In fact, even though we did not go with them, one of the partners there has remained engaged with us -- offering feedback, ideas and introductions to very high-value connections. I find that very impressive. If they are interested, Opus moves fast. We were hoping they could pull together a term-sheet in time, as we could see them adding huge industry-specific value for us, but our fundraising went too fast for these guys (too fast for many others - I wouldn't call Opus "slow" in any way). All around great experience. If you find a good partner match, I think you are in very good hands.
