Founder at Inkscreen
Since inception of my company we have banked at Wells Fargo, mainly because our personal accounts were there. WF is inexpensive, but they add zero value to our business. I've been talking to Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) and they are touting their vast network of VC's and angel investors, specifically in Austin, as a primary benefit to establishing a banking relationship. We are fundraising right now so that sounds good, but I'm wondering if anyone has a success story to share where SVB added tangible value to your fundraising mission. This is our initial raise - we have a newly finished product, a sales and marketing partnership, and a sales pipeline but no revenue at the moment.
