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 expertise and the qualitative artistry to build a synergistic partnership with their portfolio companies.

Irv Shapiro
CEO, Founder

River Cities history and expertise in working with growth stage companies proved invaluable in the formative years of PerfectServe. While our strategy shifted to better meet market dynamics, the team at River Cities was always there as a source of encouragement and business development. They made strategic introductions to some of our earliest hospital clients, contributing significantly to our growth. The people at River Cities are creative, constructive and straightforward. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with them as my business partners.
