How We Add Value for Our Portfolio Companies

Castor Ventures was very quick and easy to work with through the diligence process easing the burden of fundraising and allowing us to achieve our goals. Moreover, since their investment, the Castor team has been a great partner as they have introduced us to dozens of business development opportunities.

Jan Schnorr Founder & CEO @ C2Sense

Being included in the monthly spotlight was a wonderful opportunity for Near-Miss Management to gain exposure among a large group of Penn Alumni, who are accomplished, forward looking individuals. We have been able to share this honor with those interested in our company, which has been very valuable. At a time when research has made it unequivocally clear that women entrepreneurs face particular difficulties in raising funds, Chestnut Street Ventures is shining a light on a progressive path forward – demonstrating their commitment and vision to advancing women.

As as a founder, I found Chestnut Street’s investment process to be both thorough and seamless. My founder friends and I say, that if a VC wants to be A+, they have to be empathetic and responsive – of which you’re both.

Edrizio De La Cruz CEO @ Arcus

Green D personifies the VC who is humble, grounded, agile and helpful. From a cold email to the consummation of a deal within a month, to multiple introductions and being available whenever we reach out for help… kudos! A true role model for others in the VC world.

Saikat Dey Founder & CEO @ Guardhat

The Spike Ventures team has been incredible to work with. They have a very efficient due diligence process and are great people to know. The Stanford alumni network has already helped us getting access to potential partners and customers. They are a great value add with no strings attached, and I’ve recommended them as investors to other companies.
