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.
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.
The River Cities team has been insightful and supportive throughout the challenges of launching a new business and the subsequent rapid growth of our company. They understand the key elements of successful strategy, collaboration, and the art of getting things done. River Cities is an extremely valuable partner to EndoChoice.
— Mark Gilreath, CEO, EndoChoice Inc.
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.
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.
Over the past 30 years I have worked with many venture capital firms and found few true partners. You always hope a VC firm will bring more to the table than just cash but are often disappointed. River Cities combines the quantitative skills to help a CEO fine tune a business model, deep industry expertice and the qualitative artistry to build a synergistic partnership with their portfolio companies.
— Irv Shapiro , CEO, Ifbyphone
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
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
