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.

The River Cities’ team was a critical part of INSPIRIS’ strategic direction and success. River Cities was a valued capital partner but more importantly augmented INSPIRIS’ management team by providing invaluable time, expertise, and industry connections. River Cities was a supportive and contributing partner in the company’s innovation and expansion to new service offerings and customer segments. It would be a privilege to have the opportunity to work with River Cities again in the future on another venture.
— Mike Tudeen, CEO
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.
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

River Cities has taken the time to thoroughly understand our industry and our competition and their strategies through independent research. This research has been of tremendous value and has positively affected our strategies.
— Archie Black, CEO, SPS Commerce, 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
