They Don't Make Me Quake with Joy!

Fund: Quaker BioVentures

PUBLIC:

I founded and led a company locally to Philadelphia which I took all the way to a successful FDA approval and an exit - the company was acquired by a big pharma. Over the years I've met and interacted with most of the people employed at this VC as well as swapped notes with other local CEOs. The bottom line is always the same - they listen to the pitch, create some busy work and then silence. I can't think of any substantial investment that they made as a lead in the recent past - they seem to be managing current portfolio only. They are time wasters.

Busy Work Only No Investment

PUBLIC:

If you're on the East Coast or in the Philadelphia area you will probably be advised to seek out Quaker Bioventures. My current advice would be to stay away as they are not making investment but supporting current portfolio.

Not a First Choice VC

Fund: Quaker BioVentures

Posted by Anonymous on 2008-12-23

PUBLIC:

If you're in the Mid-Atlantic area...they are worth pitching.

Although we managed to interest them with our tech...they didn't ask good questions and appear to be a trend following group. 'Are they interested" if yes then we're interested' kinda mentality. I am hard pressed to see ANY insights/advice or what they would bring besides the capital.

Their supposed success may have more to do with lack of VC competition in the Mid-Atlantic region than anything else.

Good if You are in the Midatlantic Region.

PUBLIC:

I know these guys. THey were not appropriate for me, but they are not bad. Too 'biotech-y'. They need to branch out more into devices, and get a presence outside of the Mid-Atlantic region.

Good People, but Poor Follow Up

Fund: Quaker BioVentures

Posted by anonymous on 2007-10-17

PUBLIC:

We had two seemingly positive meetings with Quaker, and then complete silence. The people there are experienced and have great track records, but gave us no follow up.
