NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 03/11/13 -- On March 7th, 2013, PrivCo Founder & CEO Sam Hamadeh met with Intel Capital President Arvind Sodhani at the NASDAQ stock exchange for a rare, exclusive in-person interview regarding Intel Capital's #1 Ranking as the Most Successful Tech Venture Capital Firm of 2012 (ranked by number of private tech company exits via acquisitions, as part of PrivCo's Annual Private Tech Company M&A Research Report), the keys to the firm's success, what he looks for in a startup before funding, and what he's funding now as the "next, next" thing years in advance.
Mr. Sodhani, who moments earlier had rang the NASDAQ closing bell, was in town to meet with executives of the NASDAQ regarding upcoming IPOs. As the President of Intel Capital (and a former board member of the NASDAQ), Mr. Sodhani oversees all venture capital investments for Intel Capital, as well as all mergers and acquisitions activity for Intel Corp. (a man who can sign off on a $1 Billion acquisition overnight). PrivCo Founder and CEO Sam Hamadeh met with Mr. Sodhani at a private reception held in the industry veteran's honor after the ringing of the NASDAQ bell, and interviewed him regarding Intel Capital's past performance and future aspirations.
