Over the years, we have found MedStars and Anne DeGheest to be an insightful, courageous and very competent executive and investor. It is a pleasure to work with Anne and Medstars.

— Howard D. Palefsky, Managing Director, Montreux Equity Partners

Anne is brilliant. She has a keen mind and is able to understand a medical product's real niche as well as the issues it will face in product adoption. I have referred entrepreneurs and young companies to Anne because she is able to unearth the gem from a product concept that is not yet fully developed.

— J. Casey McGlynn, Chairman of the Life Sciences Group at Wilson
Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati

In working with Anne through Life Science Angels, it is clear she possesses a valuable combination of exceptional analytical skills with hands-on experience. Anne provides direct, clear and actionable advice that enables entrepreneurs to best maximize their chances for a successful outcome.
