What makes River Cities a trusted and valued partner is their strategic guidance and support of management during the inevitable difficult periods. In my estimation this separates a good investor from a great one.
— Rob Morocco, CEO, OrthoScan, Inc.
River Cities has been extremely supportive - not only with their investment, but with their coaching on almost every aspect of our business. Put another way, River Cities Capital Funds represents a tremendous resource that comes in a very user-friendly package.
— Phil Gilmour, CEO, EVault, Inc.
As a major equity sponsor of Health Integrated, River Cities has provided our company with a wealth of resources in critical areas such as resource planning, corporate governance and business strategy. They have consistently honored all their commitments for capital and time, through thick and thin. In fact, I consider them to be a part of my management team.
— Shan Padda, Chairman and CEO, Health Integrated, Inc.
I found River Cities Capital to be a terrific partner. Of course, they provided financial capital, but what I really appreciated about them was their solid, practical business wisdom. As an experienced start-up operator, I found that the team listened and understood before offering their insights into the issues at hand. I appreciated that they respected my approach and made solid suggestions directed at areas where I could truly use the feedback. River Cities has a unique blend of technological understanding and excellent business acumen.
— John Street, CEO, MX Logic
River Cities has demonstrated great acumen in the presentation and marketing of the Company to others, whether assisting us in finding other investors or in attracting executive talent to the Company. In many respects, River Cities has been a model for savvy entrepreneur-VC collaboration.
— Robert A. Fisher, CEO, Foresight Corporation
River Cities was able to recognize our opportunity earlier than their competitors, run an efficient due diligence process that did not impact our ability to focus on our business while bringing in investment partners that improved all our chances of success. In my book, Rivers Cities, is the definition of a true partner that added much more than financing to our company.
— Jim Pearson, CEO, Suros Surgical
River Cities demonstrated significant leadership for the Company's investor syndicate. They rolled up their sleeves and dug into the details, which enabled us to make good decisions based on facts and practical assumptions. Their grounded approach to identifying opportunities and overcoming challenges served management and the investors well.
— Mike Nazzaro, President, Nielson BuzzMetrics
River Cities continually challenges us to be our best. Since their investment in Simbionix a little over one year ago, they have consistently articulated wise business sense and counsel, which is highly appreciated. On the one hand, River Cities has challenged management to grow aggressively; while on the other hand they have worked with management to bring a disciplined, level-headed process towards moving the company to the next level. They have consistently demonstrated the right balance of support and trust, without interfering in the management of day-to-day operations. They have shown patience, and a keen over-the-horizon "big picture" strategic view, which transcends tactical issues. When we need River Cities they are always present with concrete and substantive support.
— Gary Zamler, CEO, Simbionix USA Corporation
They invested during an uncertain time for the Company and our country, just months after 9/11. River Cities believed in what we were building, they believed in the management team, and they were willing to take risks, providing sound advice and asking thoughtful, tough questions. I highly recommend the River Cities team.
— Brian Hand, CEO, CrossMedia Services, Inc.
River Cities has been an invaluable partner to the management team and the total MedPlast investor syndicate. They have been a rock and a stabilizing force through some very rough and uncertain times. Their years of seasoned experience in business and finance have allowed the management team to focus on what's important in the short term without sacrificing the investment thesis. I can't imagine navigating through one of the most challenging business climates in modern US history without River Cities.
— Harold Faig, CEO, MedPlast Inc.
