Hot Investor Mandate 2: Family Office Seeks Healthcare IT Companies in USA and Europe

12 May

A family office based in New England manages over $1 billion in total assets, and is currently seeking to identify new investment opportunities in the life science space. The firm has no set time frame to make an allocation, however would invest in a firm within the next 3-6 months if a compelling opportunity was identified. Because the firm is backed by a single family and is not a typical fund that must go through the fundraising cycle, the firm has the ability to deploy capital as soon as an opportunity is sourced. The firm typically makes initial investments in the $500,000 to $1 million range although they are capable of providing more due do their funding structure and co-investor network. The firm is open to investing in companies that are based in either the US or Europe with a focus on companies based in the US.

The firm is currently most interested in companies operating in the healthcare IT space with little to no regulatory risk. The firm is willing to invest in seed and ventures stage companies often as a member of a syndicate of angels investors. For investments in medical technology or diagnostics, the firm would only participate as co-investor.

The firm prefers companies that have a pre-money valuation ranging from $3-5 million. The firm has a long-term investment horizon and likes to hold companies in their portfolio for much longer than a typical private equity firm.
