PUBLIC:

Peter is more than just an investor. He takes an active role in presenting ideas and strategies to the management team. Peter is enjoyable to work with (his sense of humor is "unique") and he will always take your phone calls regarding ideas and or concerns.

His knowledge of marketing and business is an asset to any company.

Weintraut and Ziebelman

PUBLIC:

Ziebelman and Weintraut do a good job of quickly deciding whether or not to invest and they deliver very clear rationale whatever their decision. Ziebelman fits the profile of an "active" investor which can be a pro or a con depending on what you're looking for. In general, I believe in a less active board/investor profile, but that's a matter of preference.
