Well done Eric "configurable phone" Baissus
A quick word to congratulate Eric Baissus of OpenPlug on the new fundraising. Eric is a cracking entrepreneur and I wish him and his team all the best with OpenPlug.
The reason why Eric, a TI vet, stands out in my book is that he marries both the deep engineering expertise that is often found in French companies with a proper business head and great dealmaking ability.
OpenPlug was advised by Jean-Michel Deligny at Go4Venture. Go4Venture is not a state-funded incubator despite the name but a highly professional fundraiser boutique. JMD publishes a venture capital bulletin which is recommended reading, in which he sometimes even comes close to adding a flippant comment. Very risque for a fundraiser, although as you can see no risk taken on the dress code ;-)
