Fine Dining On Sand Hill Road
"This is big!"
Mappa.Mundi Magazine, as part of the go-go Internet generation,
wishes to contribute to a better understanding of the Venture
Capital process. When we started our company, we
made the tour of Sand Hill Road, the epicenter of $7 billion in
venture capital funds. To help our fellow young entrepreneurs
survive the experience, we decided to share our accumulated knowledge
of this process with a systematic survey of the snacks and drinks
available at various firms. Share your fine dining experience with

In my duty as an hopeful applicant to the Young Entrepreneurs Club, I was
favored with audiences with many members of the Sand Hill Road
Venture Capital community. In terms of sheer bang for the bagel,
I must say that
Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield, & Byers gets my three-star
rating for wonderful buffets and tasty drinks.
Particularly impressive is the daily rotating menu featuring
seasonal specialties. You can
to the reception area to see what is on today's menu,
but if they are available, I'd certainly recommend the crabmeat gourmet burritos. On
some days, the lobby features a tasteful entree, perhaps chicken
with asparagus accompanied by basmati rice. The rice was
a tad overdone for my taste, but the asparagus just screamed
springtime and made me want to go straight to the conference
room and shift a paradigm or two.
A fellow entrepreneur was most impressed by the kitchen, which
features the definitive collection of
Odwalla (ODWA) juices. "It's a bigger selection than you would find in Price Club,"
our friend reported,
"I like the grapefruit fizzes, but
I'd recommend that you think outside of the box and pick the
juice that has the biggest value proposition for your
particular application space."
