“The Forestay team is professional and respectful of our time. Fred Wohlwend led Forestay’s investment in Wasabi and quickly recognized the nature of the opportunity. They moved quickly without a lot of haggling and agreed to a very clean deal that was fair for both sides. I’d recommend Forestay to other CEOs.”
“A lot of VCs said, ‘hey, we invest in teams sustainably and long term’ — they disappeared. Many even came back two weeks later, once the initial spike in corona anxiety calmed down. “They said ‘sorry, we were tied up before, but we’re still interested’. On the other hand, Forestay, they were just there. They followed up, they meant it and it showed; they were in it for the long haul.”
“From the start, it was clear that Fred Wohlwend and his team could bring in much more than just funding, as they have deep knowledge of the tech and health space, as well as insights in business models and strategy.”
