Fund: Polaris Venture Partners
Posted by Tim on 2007-12-04
We have been working with Polaris going on three years. We are in the 'Life Sciences' space, and they have added tremendous value to our business from the day we started together. I cannot imagine having a better partner. They open up the rolodex to connections whenever asked, and many times without us asking. They have always treated our management team very respectfully, even in down times.
We pitched our business to 23 groups in a four month time frame. Polaris was our number one choice from a personal standpoint of our ownership group after the 23 meetings were complete. Fortunately they were impressed in us as well, and decided to invest in our business. Terry McGuire and Jason Trevison both sit on our board, and add great value to our business.
