No Money Left to Invest
In July 2008, most likely as the result of challenges in raising their ninth fund, VenturesWest took initial downsizing steps that saw the departure of a number of their staff. Departures appear to include Chris Laird, David Mcintyre, Maha Katabi as well as Robin Axon.

We worked with David McIntyre and Sam Znaimer. Both were intereted in our deal and worked to position it for success within the firm. We got nearly to the end of the diligience process and were turned down.
