Bee Partners was our first investor, and they've always been a firm believer in the potential of Skycatch.

Michael's constructive feedback, strategic insight, and invaluable guidance were essential in helping us get our ideas off the ground, and grow our business. The entire firm truly embodies our core values (Humble, Nimble & Reliable); and, without our infinite late night calls, and the integral relationships he helped build, we wouldn't be where we are today. We're fortunate to have Michael's voice & vision within Skycatch.

Michael is an investor in Earbits through his firm Bee Partners. Aside from being a super friendly, down to earth guy, he constantly tries to add value in any way he can and is full of spot-on advice.

He's the type of investor that you can as readily share troubling information with as good, and expect to receive the same, level headed and thoughtful approach to helping you move the ball forward. Michael once emailed me out of the blue and said he felt he wasn't doing enough to support us, and offered up a list of things he could do for us. I told him I needed some advice on a matter and he said we needed some analysis on it before we could really know what the right thing to do was. He then proceeded, over the next day or two, to do the majority of that analysis for us and provide the documentation we needed to have visibility to make the right decision. Every entrepreneur wants investors who will go the extra mile for them, which is why I highly recommend that any entrepreneur who has the opportunity join forces with Berolzheimer and Bee Partners.

Michael was the first investor in TubeMogul... He took a risk on a team and a vision before anyone else was willing to do so.

We are glad he did as his contribution has been meaningful. In the early days he helped with our strategy, biz dev efforts and fundraising. Where he stands out from other investors is his persona: he's a consummate optimist and believer and inspires me every time we talk.

I’ve partnered with Michael on a couple ventures now and I’m very excited to be working with him again at Florence Healthcare (http://florencehc.com/).

Michael has three personal attributes that have been helpful to me: First he’s a ‘big node’ - he knows a broad range of folks that can help your business. Second, he’s very effective at seeing the big picture and doesn’t get bogged down in time wasters. Finally, he’s absolutely above board – he’ll give you the straight story and expects the same.
