Hot Investor Mandate 1: Family Office Invests in Healthcare IT Opportunities

15 Sep

An evergreen private equity firm launched by a wealthy European family is headquartered in Paris, France with additional offices in China and the USA. The firm was created with an aim to invest in high growth opportunities in healthcare and multiple other sectors outside of retail. The firm typically makes minority investments of US$2-10 million in Series A and B rounds (either as lead or co-investor in a round), and is currently seeking new opportunities in France, United States, and China.

Within healthcare, the firm is interested in healthcare IT applications that improves quality or efficiency of care, such as telemedicine, patient-doctor interface workforce coordination, and analytics software. The firm prefers enterprise solutions, but can also consider consumer products. The firm is not interested in insurance, cosmetics, nutraceutical or well-being products. For hardware devices to be considered, it must have a strong software/data component as its core technology. The firm is agnostic to disease areas and is currently most interested in elderly care. The firm prefers to work with growth-stage companies that are revenue-generating.

The firm is looking for companies formed by a team of founders with expertise in the medical, technology, and sales and marketing sectors. One-person companies are less likely to be considered. The firm seeks teams that are able to work across cultures and grow into international markets. The firm is a long-term investor that works closely with its portfolio companies and strives to create a sharing culture together.
