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.

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.
