Great Fund Small, Nimble, forward Thinking and Helpful

Fund: MHS Capital

Posted by Anonymous on 2011-02-11

PUBLIC:

Vijay is clearly a rising star and goes out of his way to be helpful and thoughtful. A super sharp guy that is relatively new, but has the humility to listen and dissect things logically.

Mark is fairly low key, but the success of his carefully selected portfolio and well-respected LP base is impressive and puts him in the top tier of small funds in my mind.

I soft pitched them in August 2010 and have gotten to know the fund and its strategy well over the past several months. Although our stage/industry focus/trajectory didn't make for an investment fit, I've gotten some great advice, contacts and friendship from these guys. Wishing continued success to MHS Capital!

Mark and Vijay are Smart & Helpful

Fund: MHS Capital

PUBLIC:

Met with Mark Sugarman and an associate Vijay Nagappan to pitch... they got our business model very quickly - remarkably quickly actually. They asked some of the smartest questions we've heard any investor ask in an initial meeting and even offered to refer us some potential customers they knew.

Vijay was especially quick and consistent to follow up with helpful resources - he's young, sharp and "gets it," a potential rising star IMHO.

Contrarian Investor

As the previous reviews said, MHS Capital is just Mark Sugarman. He does not have specific expertise in say gaming, but he is someone who is smart guy to have around- he understands the value of profit margins, COGS, and especially about setting up specific competitive advantages. More importantly, if he thinks you have the right startup DNA, he will back you if he believes in the idea.

Our meeting was pleasant with him and the only downside is that it would be great if he could move much faster since it is only him.

Demonstrated Integrity

Fund: MHS Capital

PUBLIC:

We met with Mark a few months ago. Less than two minutes into our presentation he stopped us and told us that he had just invested in a company that he believed to be developing a similar technology. He told us the company's name and suggested we research them on our own before deciding whether or not to reveal any more about our technology. We thanked him for his integrity and had a nice lunch talking about the economy.

MHS Capital is really Mark Sugarman. He came highly recommended and didn't live up to the hype.
