Smart Investors that Need to Be Worked Right

Fund: Edison Venture Fund

Posted by starburst on 2007-10-16

PUBLIC:

Edison is a very proactive investor - with an active business development unit within the company. If you want funding, make sure that you plan your expansion round and that the BD team has you on its radar and is tracking your progress. As with most funds, you will need to find a champion fairly early on - preferrably one of the partners - someone prepared to present your opportuntiy to the rest of the shop.

How Bad Can You Be?

Fund: Edison Venture Fund

PUBLIC:

Just a giant waste of time. No value-add and incredibly difficult to deal with. Would never do business with them again.
