Just a few of the many unedited reviews from past participants in FOI gatherings:


Are you an extraordinary entrepreneur, business or service? To meet family offices go HERE.


Hi Arthur,
It’s been great working with you on the webinars over the past year and I’m looking forward to doing more. You do a nice job as moderator, keeping it interactive with the audience and there is always lively Q&A. Most importantly though, it produces results. I’ve consistently had participants reach out to me after each presentation, interested in learning more about investing in our funds. Thanks!
All the Best,
Jeff Pomeranz, Managing Director, Right Side Capital Management


I just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to present to your family office network.  I know that you don’t take every application that comes your way, but rather companies that you feel have something to offer the investors at FOI.  Since our company has done three webinars with you, we have been able to connect with many people in our industry.  Not only from a funding standpoint, but also from a business networking perspective, as well as gathering new customers and clients.  It’s been a real pleasure working with you and having you engage with me during the presentation as well.  That kept the presentation more lively and more of a conversation rather than just a one sided pitch meeting.  Thank you again, and we are looking forward to our continued collaboration together!

Joseph Gissy, Founder and CEO.

I presented my company to FOI earlier this year and had a truly pleasant experience. The audience asked thoughtful questions and interacted with me. I got to meet some really good people following the presentation, including some exceptional investors. Arthur was very generous with his time, fully engaged throughout the process and genuinely interested in what we were building. Thank you so much for the opportunity.

John Tilak

Thanks for the professional, enjoyable webinar Arthur.

It was particularly great to have you as the moderator as your questions were

exactly on target for investors to be able to understand our business

model…which is not an easy task!

We are certainly going to be coming back again, as the results from the webinar have been fantastic.

We love the emphasis on respect and relationships that you have in your network.

This is our company culture as well in all of our partnerships…and it’s great to find an investor network that feels the same as we do.

Jay Brents, CEO

Arthur and Team FOI:   Thank you for all your help!

We have very much enjoyed working with Arthur and the FOI Team.   In addition to doing custom FOI Research to help Refana connect with appropriate Investors in the FOI Community, Arthur also provided personal guidance and counsel to best optimize our FOI Investor Seminar events.  We have kept in touch and Arthur continues to assist Refana beyond our FOI Seminars.

As a result, we have broadened our fund-raising network and have leveraged those relationships to further enhance Refana’s value proposition in the Biotech and Pharma sector.

Arthur and the Team have strong hands-on experience within the Family Office Investor Community and will add tremendous value to your fund-raising challenges and opportunities.  Highly Recommended!

“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.”
