Paul Margolis joined my board over two years ago. He's a former entrepreneur/CEO who has been in my shoes and has experienced much success in the past. Paul is extremely prepared for all key company interactions and provides insightful commentary and feedback. While he can be tough, sometimes the answer needs to be tough. There is no question that we are a better company and that I am a better CEO because I've had the benefit of Paul on my Board of Directors.
Longworth would be one of the first VCs that I would call if I became involved in another company that required funding in the future.

They were not interested in our company, but got back to us quickly, which is commendable.PRIVATE: Members Only

My experience with Longworth has been nothing but positive. As a partnership they have all been supportive and constructive, and individually, each member of the firm has provided specific help and advice. Jim Savage, in particular, has shown himself to be a knowledgeable, experienced, and savvy investor and operating executive. I strongly recommend Longworth to anyone who is interested in a serious partner with valuable advice and counsel.PRIVATE: Members Only (614 Characters)

My company has flourished by partnering with Longworth. Their combination of operational and finance experience has been invaluable to my team and I. Rather than just participating from the periphery, Longworth is an active partner in strategic and tactical objectives, as well as, in sales opportunities. Most of all, they have been patient and helpful when it counts most. As with most VCs, negotiating terms can be tedious; however, once the round was closed, they came onboard with rolled up sleeves.PRIVATE: Members Only (423 Characters)

They came to our offices to express interest in our business and asked me to come into their offices to pitch the group. Three partners were late and the others paid little attention. Was very disappointed in the whole meeting as well as the group of people that I metPRIVATE: Members Only

I really can't speak for the firm as it is today because my experience is dated (1998-2000), when Longworth was getting off the ground. But I can say great things about Jim Savage, a founding partner at Longworth. Jim was on my board and a complete breath of fresh air. He has genuine, tactical operating experience and offers great insight to founders.PRIVATE: Members Only (369 Characters)

I was introduced to Jim Savage through a friend and liked him. Seemed like he could add value without stepping on toes.
I haven't seen a lot of activity from them and wonder if they are in between funds"PRIVATE: Members Only
