Fund: vSpring Capital
Posted by deppstein on 2008-02-12
I have the highest regard for Dinesh Patel, Managing Director, and of vSpring Capital for life science investments. I have been CEO of two biotech companies in which vSpring invested, encompassing both lead and non-lead positions. In both cases, Dinesh provided good insights, excellent support and help but did not impose when not needed. He has the very wonderful quality that I have only seen in a few venture capitalists of being a savy business person who cares about and knows how to make a good return but does not let this get in the way of his genuine caring for and humane treatment of people. Others I have interacted with, both on the venture capital and business side as well as elsewhere in the community have the highest regard for Dinesh, and genuinely enjoy working with him.
vSpring was also very fair in deal terms and valuation, being realistic but not greedy, and had great turn-around time on the deal. We need more firms with these qualities!PRIVATE: Members Only
