The firm typically makes $1-$5 million investments. The firm is seeking 4-5 investments in early-stage companies, start-ups including spinout companies from academia. The firm is geographically agnostic, and is open to investments from all over the world.

The firm focuses only on aesthetics with an anti-aging focus, including skin rejuvenation, body shaping and modification. The firm is open to all therapeutics, medical devices, and healthcare IT, as long as the technology serves an unmet need/gap in the aesthetic marketplace. The firm historically invested in injectables, toxins, topicals, cosmetics, and devices.
