Hot Life Science Investor Mandate 2: Taiwanese Evergreen Fund Looking Globally for Life Science Opportunities

20 Nov

An evergreen fund that was established in 2013 and is based in Taiwan is operating from a committed capital of USD 300 million. The fund makes equity investments in early- to late-stage private businesses in the life science space. Typical allocations range from USD 1.5 million to north of USD 10 million. The fund likes to lead investments in Taiwan-based businesses and co-invest in businesses overseas. The fund is currently seeking new opportunities in Taiwan, Greater China, Southeast Asia, US, Canada, and EU.

The fund takes a generalist approach when considering life science opportunities, including therapeutics (small molecule and biologics), medical devices, diagnostics, healthcare services, and nutraceuticals. The fund is seeking cutting edge, innovative, and platform technology. In therapeutics, the fund considers all stages from preclinical through pre-IPO. In medical devices, the fund prefers later stage projects with proof of concept. The fund is open to all disease indications.

The fund is looking for competent, experienced, and reliable management teams when considering investment. Prior to deciding on allocations, the fund’s management team typically spends months interacting with candidate companies to determine their track record, quality of scientific research, technical expertise, and flexibility and reliability in working with investors. The fund typically requires a board seat in the companies it invests in.
