On Tuesday, Chevy Chase, Md-based TDF Ventures alongside D.C.-based Paladin Capital Group invested a total of $23 million into a group of Silicon Valley-based startups. Here’s how the investments break down:
The Maryland VC firm led by General Partner Steve Mankoff, an Oracle and Siebel alum, invested $5 million into OpsPanda, a Palo Alto cloud software startup that focuses on sales analytics. The investment was jointly made between TDF Ventures and PivotNorth Capital; a firm that specializes in private university and seed stage investing. According to a press release,OpsPanda’s SaaS service uses “predictive analytics to help sales teams align goals with results by leveraging data buried in the enterprise–such as quotas, hiring, attrition, skills and ramp.”
TDF Venture’s other investment on Tuesday, totaling $4 million, was aimed at Stellar Loyalty. Stellar Loyalty is a CRM (customer relationship management) software startup that is based in Foster City, Calif. “The Stellar Loyalty team has changed the market dynamics with a modern, mobile-best SaaS solution, and we believe they are poised to capture robust market share in the global loyalty market,” Mankoff said in a statement.
