“SOSV is the definition of “smart money”. No matter the business-related question we ask, we get sensible answers, helping us to get to a solution without getting in our way of growing our company. After three years of working together and hearing all sorts of horror stories of mangled VC-entrepreneur relations from other companies, we think we got a great deal with SOSV. The success of MavenHut is a testament to that.”

BOBBY VOICU – Co-founder & CEO, Mavenhut

“Through the ongoing support from SOSV, CoderDojo has been able to support 35,000 kids in developing coding and technology skills on a weekly basis. Not only has SOSV supported the movement through direct funding but with Sean O’Sullivan and Bill Liao working with the Foundation team at board level, CoderDojo benefits from their knowledge, wisdom, insight and network of global connections.”

MARY MOLONEY – Global CEO, CoderDojo

“SOSV was there for Storyful at the moment of truth, when we needed not only finance but mentoring. They followed through with both – through the best of times and also the toughest – and played a key role in our eventual exit.”

MARK LITTLE – Founder and Director of Innovation, Storyful
