Great Discussion and Very Helpful with Introductions Even Though Our Seed Round Wasn't a Fit.

Fund: Highland Capital Partners

Posted by Chris Shaw - Co-Founder & CEO of LexSpot on 2012-02-29

PUBLIC:

Value added insight, helpful introductions, quick turnaround and great personalities to boot.

I was introduced to Dan Nova at Highland about a month ago. We had also chatted with John Palfrey--one of Highland's venture executives as well.

We were pre-launch, but had a basic product together and we were looking for seed funding--pretty much out of Highland's traditional sweet spot.

It didn't matter. Dan gave us a great deal of his time. He spent time picking our deck apart and offered to give us a bunch of intros to angels and lawyers in town. (We build SaaS for lawyers).

He kindly and quickly gave us reasons why Highland isn't interested in the seed stage, but would like to chat as we validated assumptions and looked for a true series A investment (3-5 million). He never asked anything beyond what we offered to share and was helpful in every meaningful way. Definitely worth talking with Highland and Dan and we'll be chatting with them again when we go to raise our A.
