Efficient & Fair Closing, Well Versed in Wireless

Fund: SunBridge Partners

Posted by Anonymous on 2008-09-18

PUBLIC:

As in all things, I'm sure your perspective varies dependent on whether you close with a given firm or not. That said, we were pleasantly surprised with SB given all the horror stories you read on this site, not that the overall process was a cake walk. We probably started with a universe of 50 firms, then whittled it down based on who had specific knowledge of our sector. At the end of the day, we were left with competing offers, with SB's perspective winning out when we extrapolated what it would be like to work with these guys over the coming years. The closing process especially surprised our board, given it being very efficient and fairly balancing the needs of our angels, founders and staff members. Even with an economically superior offer from a competitive entity, we'd still want to do business with them.

Knows Aerospace, Approachable

I met John Gannon electronically via a connector about whom Sunbridge was conducting due diligence. I found John to be very cordial, indeed, welcoming and polite. His background is quite diverse which explains his range of knowledge and ability to share and understand both the space in which we are launching our company and our vision. Though he declined to invest in our startup, he continues to be available for direction and advice and networking. One of the few VC that are willing to invest in the emerging markets created by the Very Light Jet.
