Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. Business Media commented, “This year’s lineup of Founder-Friendly Investors shows just how powerful the right combination of backer and entrepreneur can be. By going the extra mile for their founder-partners, each of the 2023 honorees has positioned itself as a firm who in-demand entrepreneurs can trust to take their business to the next level.”

Rob Rodin, CEO of RLH Equity Partners, observed, “This multi-year recognition of RLH is a testament to our entire firm’s commitment to strong, fair, and enduring collaborations with entrepreneurial founders.  Because this award is significantly based on Inc’s interviews with founders of our portfolio companies, it is an especially powerful reflection of our approach to helping those talented individuals to scale their distinctive businesses.”
