Hot Life Science Investor Mandate 1: Seed Stage VC Seeks Medtechs for Partnerships

25 Jul

A seed stage venture capital firm located in the Eastern United States, which makes equity investments of up to $100,000 into seed stage organizations, is focusing on emerging spinouts from Universities. The firm’s fund has an evergreen structure, and is currently looking to make one additional investment in 2013.

The VC is currently most interested in investing in a therapeutics company, as they have the most experience in that sector. However, the firm would also consider allocating to a company developing a medical technology or diagnostic. Within these sectors, the firm is opportunistic in terms of subsector and indication, and will evaluate these companies on a case-by-case basis.

The firm is always looking to make a strong partnership with their partner’s science teams, so having capable leadership in place that is willing and able to work alongside them is paramount. As they are looking for companies fresh out of the university setting, they exclusively invest in pre-revenue companies.
