“As a serial entrepreneur, I've worked with top-tier VCs, including NEA, Kleiner Perkins, and GV. My experience with HP Ventures has been exceptional. When Mike Stonebraker and I co-founded Tamr we wanted to compliment our institutional investors with a strategic investor that could bring more than just cash, so it was natural to talk with HPE. Given HPE's size, I was initially skeptical that HPE Ventures could move quickly, but they dramatically exceeded my entrepreneurial expectations. As a partner, they have brought value beyond their investment. They really understand what we need – revenue and faster growth. HP Ventures has delivered for Tamr.”
Cohesity, Inc Founder/CEO
“We are excited that HPE is both a commercial partner and strategic investor for Cohesity's hyperconverged secondary storage solution. The simplicity and scalability of Cohesity software combined with the power of HPE hardware, all available as one solution from HPE, will accelerate enterprise adoption of Cohesity's ground-breaking technology for their data protection and archive workloads.
As a CEO looking for the right strategic investor, a key consideration for partnering with HPE was the Pathfinder team's ability to help unlock the true potential of this partnership. HPE Pathfinder team has proven they can truly drive value for Cohesity and have become our trusted advisors as we scale our go-to-market with HPE.”
Co-Founder/CEO of Hexadite
“Hewlett Packard Pathfinder is much more than a venture investment. Choosing HP Pathfinder as a partner was one of the best decisions we made in the company’s life cycle, as it provided Hexadite with the tools and platform needed to elevate the company to enterprise scale. In just a few short months, we were able to close a strategic investment from HPE as well as a reseller agreement with HPE’s security software division, which brought Hexadite invaluable exposure to the worldwide market, bolstering the company in being recognized as the leader in Security Automation. Great team and program!”
