Hats off to Aaron, Matt, Poornima, the entire Mint team and all the investors (FirstRound, Felicis Ventures, SoftTech VC, Shasta Ventures, et all). Aaron and Sanford crossed paths back when Mint was still a prototype on Aaron’s laptop. Aaron asked coyly, “Do you think this is fundable?” Sanford replied, “Are you kidding? Cancel your plans, you’re coming to dinner with us tomorrow”. We invited Arron to FoundersTable to meet Josh Koppleman (FirstRound) and FirstRound ended up investing shortly afterwards (along with a few A+ angels we tipped off early on - nods to Aydin Senkut/Felicis Ventures and Jeff Clavier/SofttecVC). We take no credit except for knowing a winner when we saw it. A well deserved exit for team Mint and a huge win for Intuit. We wish everyone continued success.
That makes the
3rd 4th 5th FoundersTable attendee with a healthy exit post-event (PowerSet, StumbleUpon, Mint, Slide, Like.com) and we look forward to having them back to future dinners as veteran entrepreneurs. If you’d like to apply for a spot at the table, please fill out the form here: FoundersTable Application and we hope to see you at a future dinner. [note: we're not running any additonal FoundersTable events for now. We'll post an announcement when we start again]
