MENLO PARK, CA – Today at the opening of NVCA 2012, the Annual Meeting of the National Venture Capital Association, Square 1 Bank, a premier provider of financial services to entrepreneurs and their investors, announced it has signed a letter of intent to develop a strategic partnership with Shareholder InSite to provide shareholder administration tools to venture capital and private equity firms and their portfolio companies.

Venture capital firms face unique challenges in collecting, organizing, analyzing, and acting upon portfolio company data.  The Qval solution from Shareholder InSite is a cloud-based service that reduces the time and effort required to manage this data, while providing insightful decision support. 

“By using Qval, our clients can make better decisions, provide more useful and transparent reporting, and spend less time on collecting and validating portfolio company data,” said Judith Erwin, Founder and EVP of Venture Capital Services at Square 1 Bank.  “We continue to seek ways to support our clients, and our potential partnership with Shareholder InSite will provide our clients with a powerful decision support tool.” 

“Square 1 has a stellar reputation as a bank that is committed to strong client relationships, use of cutting edge technologies, and for innovation in support of industry standards and transparency. Through the development of a partnership with Shareholder InSite (and our preferred partner Quist Valuation), Square 1 Bank amplifies that reputation by facilitating the delivery of independent, value-added services that will remove administrative headaches and hurdles, and which simplify otherwise tedious accounting and analytical processes,” said Joe Maxwell, CEO and Chairman of Shareholder InSite.
