Huge Time Wasters, Lots of Bs Homework

Fund: Silverton Partners

Posted by smartstart on 2014-03-21

PUBLIC:

4-5 model update requests, 3+ weeks to respond after we submit their homework. Projections in both directions by years, for a seed stage investment. Amateur.

So Far, So Good

Fund: Silverton Partners

Posted by GreenKnight on 2011-06-08

PUBLIC:

I've had one call and one casual lunch with Morgan. I found Morgan to be sharp, cordial, and insightful. Whether or not we ultimately work with this VC, our interactions with them to date have been positive.

Top Notch Firm

Fund: Silverton Partners

Posted by mdmaus123 on 2010-06-11

PUBLIC:

The Silverton team, particularly Bill Wood, is the best of the best in Austin. For the entrepreneur who is looking for sound advice without a lot of attitude, there is no better firm to work with. Our experience has been extremely positive. Bill always seems to know exactly what the “biggest issue” is at any point in the development of a start-up, and helps ensure that the team is focused on it. That is an extremely valuable asset to a leadership team. I recommend them very, very highly.

Work with Charley

Fund: Silverton Partners

Posted by Anonymous on 2010-05-19

PUBLIC:

Charley is a class act, and a smart guy. If you can get him on your board, go for it. The one downside - Silverton doesn't have much operating expertise, nor vertical expertise. They are reasonably entrepreneur friendly, though, which overwhelms those other comments.

Good Experience

Fund: Silverton Partners

Posted by reinspruch on 2008-03-26

PUBLIC:

I met with Silverton twice while we were still very very early stage - probably too early for them to invest. They were cordial, upfront and did not waste my time. And most important, I walked out *without* that sinking feeling that I just used for competitive intelligence. Silverton is a must in Austin and probably a better place to start than a big outfit like Austin Ventures.

Great Experience with Bill Wood

Fund: Silverton Partners

Posted by Anonymous on 2007-12-03

PUBLIC:

Silverton is one of the only funds in Austin that routinely does seed funding of 100-500K. Getting Bill Wood involved in your start-up is a very big positive when looking to grow the business as well as raise additional capital. Their terms are the best around and can close quickly. Bill will give you advice and direction that counts and really helps the business.

Great Reputation, Smart, Detailed

Fund: Silverton Partners

Posted by Entrep78703 on 2007-11-16

PUBLIC:

They are every bit as smart as AV, but have a much healthier attitude toward entrepreneurs.

They're a smaller fund and do more seed stage deals, but tend to stay away from consumer Internet (although they did fund uShip).

I met with them quite a few times and they were very thorough and results/numbers oriented.
