Hot Investor Mandate 1: Venture Firm Raises New Fund for Medical Devices, Diagnostics and Therapeutics

27 Oct

A Venture Capital firm based in Texas raised a new fund in 2016. The firm looks to make Series A equity investments ranging from $250,000 to $1.5 million in the initial round with up to $3 million reserved for follow on financing. Only on a case-by-case basis will the firm look to make seed investments. The firm focuses on companies in the United States and may also consider exceptional opportunities in Canada.

The firm is interested in investing in companies in the Medical Device, Diagnostics and Therapeutics spaces. The firm has a much stronger focus on devices with approximately 75% of the firm’s investments to date falling into those sectors. For Medical Devices the firm generally looks for companies that have either an early prototype or proof-of-concept data to support them. The firm is also currently interested in companies working with diagnostic devices and is not looking for companies in oncology. For therapeutics companies the firm generally makes investment in pre-clinical assets and will evaluate opportunities on a case-by-case basis.

The firm seeks privately held companies and maintains very positive and productive working relationships with its portfolio companies, providing as much assistance as needed. The firm is much more open to taking significant scientific and technical risk as opposed to sales and marketing challenges.
