Fair Terms: Straight Shooters

Fund: Adams Capital Management, Inc.

Posted by manchild on 2008-11-21

PUBLIC:

Adams has invested in my company. They are fairer and more up-front about terms than other VC's that I have interacted with. They get alligned incentives and how if you put too much VC "preferences" on top of the securities it serves as a disincentive to the company. This has not been my experience with a lot of other funds - even those that are much bigger and should be able to overcome their short term greed to get this concept.

My principal interaction has been with Joel Adams and Bill Frezza. Both professional and will work hard to help if you tell them how.

Not micromanaging at all....

Pitched to George Ugras, respectful and insightful. Even his questions added value. He shared concrete details of his experiences with other portfolio companies and how those lessons applied to my business. Big thumbs up.

Great Partners!

Fund: Adams Capital Management, Inc.

Posted by Ted Teele- SnapRetail on 2012-04-11

PUBLIC:

Adams Capital Management led our Series A with $4 million and they have been a huge asset to our company ever since. Joel Adams found our company and has provided valuable connections on several occasions. Chuck Neath is on our board and his past experience at technology companies has enabled him to provide us with excellent advice. He entrusts the management team with important strategic decisions but is always available for consultations. Most importantly, Chuck has been willing to invest his time in understanding our company and industry.
We are currently working on our Series B, and all of the partners (Joel Adams, Bill Frezza, Chuck Neath and George Ugras) have provided insightful suggestions and VC introductions. Any entrepreneur would be fortunate to be working with Adams Capital Management.
