“Summerhill's focus on early stage technology companies enables it to share our vision in a way many other funds could not. Summerhill has been a supportive and value added investor whose insight has helped us during a phase of rapid growth as well as technology challenges . Simply put, there are many VC’s who claim they add value, but I have found only a hand few really do and I would put Summerhill on that list”.

"We were fortunate enough to have multiple options for our A round. We chose Summerhill over the others -- some with larger pools of capital and some with supposedly bigger brand name -- because of the quality of Summerhill's leadership team. They fit our culture perfectly and did everything thing they said they would do throughout our closing process. There were ZERO surprises. We closed within 5 weeks of signing our term sheet. As time has passed and our company continues to grow, Summerhill continues to be a "do what you say" partner that has consistently delivered for us.”
Alexander "Sandy" Kemper, Chairman and CEO, Pollenware
