Thanks so much for hosting the event. I was REALLY impressed by the signal-to-noise ratio. I’ve done many of these sort of pitches before, and its rare to get this many real players in one room.

Dear Arthur, From the minute we signed onto Family Office Insights the experience has benefited our company. We were invited to attend the Sustainability conference at the UN. The family office investor lunch was attended by interesting and informed investors. Arthur has been fantastic in terms of connecting our company www.dropps.com to people and offices that might be helpful.
It was a pleasure to meet you and get to know you on a personal level. We have much in common and I was humbled by your hospitality.
Professionally speaking, the experience at Family Office Insights went above and beyond our expectations. Even in the middle of summer, a large number of motivated investors gathered to hear the presentation.
Words cannot express how excited we are to move this vision forward.
With Much Appreciation
Fred Starr, MD , Founder-Myneurva Datasystems.

Creating Novel Treatments For Neurodegeneration and Neuroinflammation
“Hello Arthur, Hugh and David,
On behalf of the directors, officers and shareholders of AZTherapies thank you for hosting an incredible event. The family offices you connected with us were both qualified and gracious. On short notice there were more than a dozen who expressed genuine interest, asked all of the appropriate questions and clearly were vetted by you as people who care genuinely about neurodegenerative disease. Alzheimers (Phase III pivotal trial) and Ischemic Stroke recovery (Phase II pivotal trial) are clearly our area of primary focus yet as shared the I’m pact in other diseases such as ALS and Parkinson have genuine hope and promise. When we succeed I am sure you all will be smiling knowing you contributed at a critical point in our journey. Together we will impact the health of countless lives and their families.”
