Hot Life Science Investor Mandate 1: Quebec VC Seeks Pre-Revenue Medtech, Diagnostics & Healthcare IT

21 Jan

A venture capital fund created in 2013 and based in Canada with connections to the European market is looking for companies located in Canada and the United States. The firm makes equity investments in progressive stages, ranging between 500k – $5m and typically leads the round – although the firm is open to co-investing. The firm is interested in pre-revenue companies within one year of generating revenue, all the way up to expansion stage.

The firm is interested in anything with a technology aspect – including medical devices, diagnostics, healthcare IT, industrial & telecom. The firm is not interested in drug discovery and is open to all indication areas. The firm will consider regulatory devices and looks for technologies with a strong competitive advantage.

The firm looks for companies led by strong, experienced and capable teams as the firm makes minority stake investments. The firm looks for management teams who understand the regulatory and competitive landscape and are familiar with their chosen subsector and indication area. Although the firm looks for companies backed by strong technology, the firm puts more emphasis on management team capabilities and will not invest in a company unless this requirement is met. The firm takes a board seat on all investments.
