“We prefer brutal honesty to hypocritical politeness.”
The reality is there are no usual suspects in cleantech, and KV thinks outside the box.
KV believed in our bold idea to change the way the world uses carbon and has been a critical partner in helping us create a post-pollution world.
KV backed and believed in us when we had more naysayers than supporters.
KV is on call if I need help, but I set out to deliver, and there’s no interference.
When you’re building rockets, things go wrong, you have hardware failures that set you back, but with KV, they understand that.
With KV, we get a killer combination: They think impossibly big and push us to take huge swings, but they are also willing to get deep into the weeds with us to understand the real risks and opportunities, helping us navigate carefully as we build our business.
The thing I love most about KV is how they are not afraid of making big, contrarian bets, as long the team is world class and has done their homework.
Indeed, they seek out these types of opportunities, and these are the kinds of bets that change entire industries.
KV is the Ferrari of deep tech.
Everyone is your friend when times are good, but it’s never all smooth sailing and KV stood by me in the toughest of times.
Standing by you while continuously pushing you to greatness is why I will always come back to work with them.
In 2011, KV made a big bet on us when Nutanix was still a pre-revenue company that many thought was a “science project.”
Once again, we’re working together on a disruptive business software idea with DevRev that is worth spending a decade on.
Nutanix and now DevRev
KV believed in us when few would and didn’t care about where we came from or who we knew, being only focused on what we had built. In a world where everyone chases the next bubble and has a sheepish behavior, that’s truly special.
