Hot Investor Mandate 4: Southwest VC Seeks Pre-Clinical Therapeutics, Diagnostics and Devices

22 Sep

A Venture Capital company founded in 2006 is currently making investments out of its 2nd fund that had its first close in 2013. The firm makes primarily equity investment into seed and early stage rounds ranging from $500,000 to $1 million initially and up to $1.5 million over the lifetime of the investment. The firm is focused on companies located in the Southwestern United States although they are open to review companies from throughout the US. The firm could make as many as 3 new investments over the next 6-9 months.

The firm is looking for companies in sectors of Therapeutics, Diagnostics, Medical Devices, Life Science Tools and Healthcare IT. The firm is agnostic in terms of subsectors and indications within these areas and is also interested in orphan indications and wireless medical devices. The firm looks to invest in very early pre-clinical stage companies and prefers to see some supporting in-animal data, although it is not a requirement.

The firm is looking for privately held companies with experienced management teams. The firm looks to play an active role as an investor and generally looks to take a board or board observer seat following investment.
