"We met Peter and Shoreline early in our funding process. We were a very early stage company but Peter understood what were doing and the potential market. We were able to quickly agree on terms and the funding process was seamless. The Shoreline team provided great support and contacts which ultimately culminated in a successful exit for our company and shareholders. I still continue to work with Peter and his team on deals."
