“Windspeed Ventures was positively invaluable to my startup, Apps.com. They saw the opportunity where others didn’t. They gave us great advice, and they even helped us find and negotiate with our ultimate acquirer. I wholeheartedly recommend John Bullock and Windspeed Ventures as a superb choice for early-stage entrepreneurs."
“The Comdisco Ventures portfolio is the last remaining substantial asset of Comdisco from which value must be derived. Windspeed Ventures has dramatically increased the value of this important asset in a very short time. I would recommend Windspeed as a portfolio manager to anyone looking for solid returns and strong administration with complete transparency.”
Randolph I. Thornton
President and CEO
"Comdisco entered into a partnership with Windspeed to manage a portfolio of equity interests that arose from Comdisco’s investments in start up companies. The expertise and advice of John and his team at Windspeed resulted in favorable and profitable returns to Comdisco. I would not hesitate either to engage Windspeed in the future, or to recommend them for other types of portfolio management assignments."
