Hot Life Science Investor Mandate 3: New Fund Focuses On Novel Ophthamology Technologies

7 Jan

A healthcare focused venture capital firm based in New York City was formed by accomplished retinal surgeons and a team of investment professionals that have partnered to address the need for funding early stage ophthalmic focused companies. The firm is currently raising its first fund, and is currently allocating up to $750,000 utilizing convertible notes in seed stage companies and equity in post seed stage companies. The firm is interested in co-investing as part of a syndicate. The firm is currently seeking new opportunities based in North America and Europe.

The firm specializes in early-stage investments in innovative ophthalmic diagnostic and treatment solutions. The firm seeks to invest in a broad range of technologies applicable to ophthalmology, including small molecule and biologic therapeutics, low- and high-risk medical devices, diagnostics, drug delivery, and software solutions. The firm would also consider generic drugs but with less interest. The firm considers companies at all stages, but prefers early stage projects with some clinical or other supporting data where it can add meaningful expertise outside of financial capital.

The firm seeks management teams formed by experienced entrepreneurs with track records of success and scientists with domain expertise in their field. The firm opportunistically seeks board seats on a deal-by-deal basis particularly in situations where they can add meaningful value.
