Aberdare: Well Led ... Klingenstein's Experience Counts
Aberdare is one of our early investors (VertiFlex Spine), led by Paul Klingenstein. I had lunch with him this week, and what I told him personally, I thought I'd share with you here. In my 1.5 years as CEO here, I've routinely sought Paul's advise, and listened to his valuable counsel. The point is: he's insightful, experienced, trusted, smart and intuitive - his guidance on multiple isses has been spot on. Others of my investors feel the same about him. If you're a CEO, I hope you have such a " go to" guy. Earl Fender

Good People, Solid VC's
Aberdare is an investor in my current company, and they have been refreshingly calm in an otherwise chaotic investor group.

Good Team, but a Little Young
They have strong senior team. The younger partners seem a little inexperienced. Seems like thye need someone in between the senior and junior team members. But they are very good and solid. helpful and supportive. Sami is very impressive.

Paul Klingenstein Has Built a Very Strong Team
Paul Klingenstein invested in my startup as an angel when he was in transition from Accel and invested four more rounds in Alibris over the next six years.

Sami Hamade is a Star in the Making
We pitched Aberdare and did not gain a consensus of support. They were professional, attentive during our presentation, and responded quickly with their decision. While we ended up getting our deal done with some big names in the life science segment, we would have loved to have Aberdare involved, particularly Sami Hamade. We think he is going to be an industry super star. He has the right mix of market knowledge, intellect, curiousity, operational know-how (how things get done successfully), and authenticity to be someone people will enjoy having on their team.
