From prior to our founding through our IPO, Polaris has been by our side. Every step of the way. Through thick and thin and everything in-between. Their commitment has been crucial to our ability to make difficult, smart, crisp decisions which have enabled us to build critical business value for our customers, important leadership within our industry, a truly-special place for our workforce, and a valuable company for our shareholders. In our early days, Polaris helped us attract world-class talent at every level of our team, as well as to our Board. They worked their networks and opened up doors to vital business and technology relationships. They understood what it meant to be partners, mentors, constructive critics and central contributors to our strategies to serve a rapidly-transforming healthcare market. Polaris believed in us from the very beginning, applied their operating expertise to our business, and helped us navigate an uncharted course in our journey. They’ve been true partners in every sense of the word.

Choosing Polaris as an investment partner was an easy decision for me and CliQr. The Polaris team is a highly seasoned partnership with tremendous operational background and experience in technology companies and startups. Working with such a team that is known to back strong technology plays and knows what it takes to win in the long term as an entrepreneur was a key factor in our motivation to work with Polaris. Within a short period of time, we have already seen the fruits of this, beyond just the initial investment. Polaris has been instrumental in opening up their network and introducing us to key prospective hires, partners and customers. Above all, the mentoring and coaching I have received to help scale a very rapidly growing company in a very exciting space – cloud – has been personally invaluable to me.

We chose Polaris as Strata Health’s partner because they invested in our relationship long before any funding took place. The two-way dialogue that evolved over the course of three years, coupled with their proven expertise in SaaS healthcare solutions fostered a strong sense of trust, integrity and mutual respect, which is often hard to find in this business. Since the Polaris investment, many new doors have opened for Strata in terms of markets, clients and industry dialogue. The have helped us in many ways including recruiting strong new board members, introducing us to customer prospects, and helping us build out our development team. The Board has become more strategic in driving our business towards key milestones, and the culture of collaboration is accelerating the realization of Strata’s global vision. Our decision to partner with Polaris was the absolute right one, and the organization and investors will be more successful because of it.
