Hot Life Science Investor Mandate 1: US Based Family Office Seeking Global, Seed Stage, Software Enabled Device and HIT Opportunities

11 Dec

A private/family investment vehicle based in the Western United States is seeking to invest in the life science space.  The fund is a structured organization for making angel investments in pre-seed or seed rounds.  Investments are in the form of equity; in the next 6 months the firm expects to make about 5-10 seed investments of $50,000-100,000 and an additional 40 pre-seed investments of $25,000, and is hoping to increase their allocations in the healthcare sector.  The firm also provides a three-month accelerator program.  The firm will consider investing in companies worldwide.

The firm is interested in investing in medical technology, and invests in subsectors in which the firm can apply expertise; typically this means products that have a significant software component.  Healthcare IT, biosensors, wearables and health monitoring devices are of interest.  While the firm is open to investing in any indication, the firm is particularly interested in diabetes & blood glucose monitoring, personal fitness, and mental/behavioral disorders.  In the healthcare IT sector, the firm is interested in both consumer applications and enterprise software, but is not interested in diagnostic software such as genomic, proteomic or molecular diagnostic algorithms; however, optimization and data analysis software for hospitals and diagnostic laboratories is of interest.

The firm prefers to invest in companies with at least two co-founders, one with technical expertise and one with business expertise; for the accelerator program in particular, the firm prefers to work with companies that have a technical expert co-founder.  In addition to due diligence on the management team and technology, the firm also considers a product’s potential market opportunity.
