Eric Otterson

Managing Director

 Silicon Valley Bank

A serial entrepreneur, through three VC backed technology companies. The largest, eAssist raised over $60M from top-tier VCs to support international expansion of an enterprise CRM solution, and sold to Talisma in 2006. The company spawned successes like assistly (Alex Bard and Gary Benitt) which sold in 2011 to Salesforce.com.

I work closely with high tech and emerging growth companies, reviewing business plans and market strategies, and facilitating the connections between fast-growing companies and the financial, legal and strategic resources that fuel their growth.

Through SVB, I have close relationships with angel investors, venture capitalists, and private equity firms (many of whom are clients), as well as industry leaders, enabling me to facilitate match-making relationships for growth.
