Asked Irrelevant Questions

PUBLIC:

Was one of the first VC's we pitched in late 2007. We met with Dan and another person from the firm. The pitch went ok, they got what our product did, however they failed to see beyond that.

Nice First Call, No Follow Up

Fund: Opus Capital

PUBLIC:

We had a very pleasant call with Ken Elefant. We didn't immediately follow up and neither did he. If we'd been in the Valley we'd have been banging on the door.

Very Unpleasant Pitch

Fund: Opus Capital

Posted by valley_vet on 2007-07-03

PUBLIC:

We pitched a Series A plan to Opus (Ken Elefant and Dan Avida) late last year. The meeting was fairly painful, as Dan fiercely attacked our plan based on what I believe to be mis-information about competitive products. We were not given any opportunity to respond to the competitive claims, and as a result the meeting was waste of time. Very disappointed as an experienced entrepreneur that I was not even given an opportunity to reply to the claims.
