Initially - it won't matter. Generally? A bank most people have heard of with a national presence. Dane Madsen Dane@DaneMadsen.com 206.900.5852 Mobile Sent from my mobile device. Forgive typographical and grammatical errors.

Silicon Valley Bank offers a lot support. I would recommend them. As far as a mainstream bank, I recommend Citizen's Bank. They have very few fees and no min balance required.

Hercules Technology Growth Capital and Comerica Bank's Technology & Life Sciences division also cater to start-ups. Be prepared to give up warrants.

from my experience, go with a local bank that focuses on small business. The larger banks (Wells Fargo, Chase, etc) are just a bureaucratic nightmare for startups.
