The Accelerator VC

“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

The Accelerator VC

“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
