Great Operating Experience in Carter Griffin Fund: Updata Partners For over two years now we've worked with Carter (former software company CEO) and Connor (financial/numbers guys) from Updata at quarterly board meetings and about 5-10 additional interactions per year, mostly at our request. They have been a sounding board for some of our executive hires (actually getting on the phone and interviewing our finalists alongside our exec team) and have also taught us a lot about the software-as-a-service model from a business and financial perspective. I know this may be hard to believe but they have never gotten in our way and I've just been blown away to see how different this experience has been than many of the VC nightmares I always hear about. This is my first VC funded company. Maybe we got lucky or maybe this is the sort of experience you can get when you work with a VC firm with a good balance of former entrepreneurs. I probably won't know until I do this again some day with another startup. If you're going to talk to Updata I certainly recommend Carter. I would recommend them, especially Carter, and I beleive the mostly good reviews here are warranted. We pitched to them after being courted by Carter Griffin. First pitch to Tim Meyers and Carter and while they seemed to have the usual 'vc intelligence challenge' of trying to put us into one of their existing box, they were at least courteous. We are working with Conor and Carter.
