Talked Both Equity & Debt

Fund: TriplePoint Ventures

Posted by Orange on 2010-02-02

PUBLIC:

As previously observed by others, they may be known for debt, but they do equity. I agree with the sentiment that the conversations about equity can feel linked to debt at times. But, I found them to be very, very smart guys. They got our story quickly and saw where it could go before it was obvious. In the end we didn't need it, but they were willing to help make connections within the Venture community for us. The interactions we've had with them leaves us open to working with them on either debt or equity if/when the need comes.

Firm Known for Debt Financings but Does Equity Too

Fund: TriplePoint Ventures

Posted by fundingfoo on 2009-12-29

PUBLIC:

TriplePoint is best know for their debt business (giving startups lines of credit for capital expenditures like buying servers, etc.), but they've started participating in equity investments as well.

When I pitched the firm, the partners were well-briefed, the pitch process was thorough and efficient (with good questions from around the table), and the resulting participation in the round (alongside a lead VC who authored the term sheet) was equally expedient. Ben and Sajal stood out as the most involved partners on the equity side.
