Deals Missed “ If you are in this business long enough, you'll see some great deals walk through your door . If you are in this business long enough, you’ll show some great deals the door .” – OVP Venture Part. Quote “ A guy walks into your office in the late 1980’s and says he wants to open a chain of retail shops selling a commodity product you can get anywhere for 25 cents, but he will charge 2 dollars. Of course, you listen politely, and then fall off your chair laughing when he leaves. Howard Shultz didn’t see this as humorous. And we didn’t make 500 times our money. To get even (wasn’t our not making money enough?) years later, Howard opened his own venture capital firm right down the street.” “ The Internet boom was just beginning. Amazon had sales of $4M a year. We had a handshake on a term sheet with the CEO to put $2M into Amazon for 20% of the company (a $10M post money value). At the eleventh hour, some guy named John Doerr flew up and offered $8M going in for 20% of the company (a $40M post money value). Handshake? What handshake? To get even, we buy all our books at Barnes & Noble. We don’t think Amazon has noticed.”
