PE Hub on Philadelphia Magazine's Guggenheim Ventures article

Dan Primack of Private Equity Hub (Thomson Reuters) has a piece today titled "A Good VC Story Gone Bad", concerning an article by Philadelphia Magazine on Guggenheim Venture Partners of King of Prussia and its Managing Director, Mike Burns.

The article, which appeared in the June issue, was written by Larry Platt, the former editor of Philadelphia Magazine who left shortly afterward amidst reported issues concerning his behavior. The thrust of Primack's piece is that the article, which was later pulled from the magazine's website, was full of inaccuracies and misleading information. Burns'attorney, Richard Sprague, told Primack that "the Philadelphia Magazine article was written tongue-in-cheek".
