"We have enjoyed a very productive working relationship with BerchWood, and over 10 years they have become an integral part of our business. They have greatly facilitated the process of three fund raisings and introduced us to only the highest quality investors. Our working relationship has been both effective and efficient. We hold them in high regard and would work with no one else."
