“Jim has been great to work with from the launch of Zoom; he gets along with everyone and is there to help on anything we need. His contacts in the business and venture community have been invaluable. And, not only did he come up with the name Zoom (we were calling ourselves saasbee), but he also helped us create our marketing strategy and language, go to market launch and PR strategy, and has introduced us to key consultants and employees. Jim's been an integral part of our success to date that has culminated in an amazing introduction to and review of Zoom by Walt Mossberg at the WSJ. We truly couldn't have done this without Jim's help.”

Eric Yuan
Founder & CEO, Zoom

"Jim Scheinman at Maven has been one of our strongest supporters and most trusted and helpful advisors. He has been a great sounding board on strategy, product vision, and fundraising."

Kyle Vogt
Founder and CEO, Cruise

“Jim and Sara's support and strategic help helped us grow fast and smart, and they've continued to open doors for us ever since. We didn't expect that they would also challenge us to think about our company values and (aside from being successful) what we wanted our company to become; we're a stronger company as a result.”

Ed Olson
CEO and Co-founder, May Mobility

"We worked closely with the Maven Ventures team in their incubator from the initial idea and vision for Epic! through our Series A. Not only were they incredibly helpful in the early days as we launched the company, but their introductions to Series A investors and guidance through that process was invaluable in raising a successful round."

Suren Markosian
Founder and CEO, Epic!

"Probably the best decision we made in 2008 was bringing Jim on board. He mentored us through the fundraising process and has always been an invaluable, highly dependable resource for us to build our company. Jim has reached out to his network and helped us with a jump start that as a young startup we could have only dreamed about."

Vikas Gupta
Co-founder and CEO, SocialGold
Founder and CEO, Wonder Workshop

"Everything changed after we met Jim and Maven came on board. Jim helped us focus on our core strategy and articulate our unique vision -- a fun, positive place to share your real self -- and implement hyper-growth strategies. Since then, our growth has been explosive, reaching over 5M users in a year. Maven also went above and beyond to make critical intros to our most strategic investors in our $8.5M Series A round."

John Shahidi
Co-Founder and CEO, Shots

"Maven was our first investor and has provided essential support and advice along the way. The Maven team transformed our initial pitch with feedback and training, and we ultimately raised an oversubscribed Seed round from world-class investors."

Joe Du Bey
Co-Founder and CEO, Eden

"From the start, Jim was instrumental in helping us focus our strategy on becoming the leading mobile video call platform. His insights and expertise in consumer UI, viral marketing, & the smartphone market are invaluable, as are his incredible senior level contacts in both the industry and the venture capital community. He's also great to work with."

Uri Raz
CEO and Co-Founder, Tango

"Jim played an integral part in shaping Check and helping us grow into the mobile personal finance leader we are today. Jim brought consumer experience and helped us successfully raise financing at a high valuation. He has also done a terrific job of recruiting and hiring top talent to the team, including our new COO, the former GM of Yahoo Finance!"

Guy Goldstein
CEO and Founder, Check

"Jim and Sara were the investors we didn't know we needed. They supported us through a major pivot, helped get our A and B rounds done, and generally served as trusted advisors through the whole process as first time founders. I've really enjoyed working with them. Great perspective when you need it."

Alex Rodrigues
