Bob More is a terrific investor and Board member. He's very supportive of management and ready to help out whenever asked to. Bob is never a micromanager, but is always willing to make positive suggestions. At the risk of offending others, Bob is the best investor/board member I have ever worked with!

Pete Hudson has not only been an enthusiastic investor over multiple rounds and company growth spurts, he's been essential fostering critical connections with health system decision makers. Pete is rare in that he gets investment strategy but also understands the way American healthcare really works from a founder/operator perspective.
Ian Shakil, CEO & Co-Founder Augmedix
Having worked with Private Equity for the last 17 years, I have come across many talented, successful smart people that have made significant impressions on my business career. But the first call I made when I needed to add a board member to Maestro Health was Peter Hudson. Not only does Pete have the intellect, success and talent as many others have, he has been in the trenches as a founder and CEO and has successfully built a business. To me that’s a difference maker.
Rob Butler, Founder CEO Maestro Health
Dan brings a wealth of experience to any board that he sits on and has been a collaborative partner to our company. He will push businesses to become great by offering his expertise, and he supports his companies with all available resources.
Scott Elster, CEO Prolacta Bioscience
Pete is a different kind of investor than others I know. He has experience and none of the attitude. From Day 1, he has been an exceptional partner. We know we can engage him at any time to help problem solve or leverage his significant network. He has taken the time from the onset of our company to get to know us and our business extremely well.
Mark Prather, MD CEO Dispatch Health
Bob is unmatched in his ability to create companies that make significant advancements in global health. Our work with him, both inside and outside of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, has been fantastic.
Andrew Farnum, Director Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Dr. Hudson from Alta Partners has been a fantastic partner as we have grown Aspire Health. From introducing us to potential employees to facilitating meetings with potential customers to helping us think through strategic decisions, Pete from Alta Partners has been a critical partner and one of the reasons we have been able to more than triple in size over the past 18 months.
Brad Smith, CEO Aspire Health
Dan Janney has played a key advisory role to Sutro while serving on our Board. His investment savviness and business sensibilities, together with a keen sense of what lies ahead for Sutro, give me a leg up on our competitors. Dan’s judgment is superb. He has provided critical partnering, financing and operational insights that have made a difference in the outcomes we achieved. He’s also been a real pleasure to work with. If I had the chance to work with him again, I would feel privileged to do so.
Bill Newell, CEO Sutro Biopharma
Bob More is an exceptional investment professional and board member. I have been involved with Bob in four companies since 2002. All of them had successful exits, and all were heavily influenced by Bob's expertise, intelligence and understanding of human success. As a board member and investor, Bob has a perfect mix of bringing resources, connections and helpful suggestions to the team, without being heavy handed, controlling or dominating. His steady manner and considered opinions are a welcome addition to any start-up or venture backed opportunity.
Greg Stokes, Sienna Labs Board Member, Current President & COO Novasom, Inc.
I have known Dan for a number of years as an investor and as a friend. He is smart, insightful, and is always fully engaged in whatever he is doing. He has a tremendous breadth of experience, a high level of integrity, and a good sense of humor. I have no hesitation to talk with Dan about the Company as I know he will always give me good and balanced guidance.
David Kyle PhD, CEO Evolve Biosystems
I’ve known Pete for many years: as an entrepreneur and founder of iTriage, a collaborator on multiple federal initiatives like open data for healthcare, as an unofficial advisor at times with Doximity, and now as a venture investor. He has a great network of contacts, an intimate understanding of healthcare technology and services, really understands entrepreneurs, and most importantly... is fun to work with.
