Hot Investor Mandate 1: Family Investment Trust Invests in Novel Early Stage Healthcare

1 Jun

A family investment trust based in the Boston area invests in early-stage healthcare and life sciences startups. The firm makes seed investments usually in the range of $50K-$250K initially and typically participates in future financing rounds. Investments may come in the form of straight equity or convertible notes depending on the deal. In addition to capital, the group looks to leverage years of experience in the biotech and healthcare industry and add value to portfolio companies through clinical and regulatory strategy, product launch and commercial strategy as well as corporate governance. The group may lead or syndicate rounds and is open to companies on a global basis.

The firm is fairly agnostic in terms of sectors and indications and is interested in therapeutics, medical devices, diagnostics and healthcare IT. As for therapeutics, the group is only interested in first-in-class / best-in-class compounds and does not evaluate iterative or repurposed assets (such as 505(b)(2) regulatory pathways). The group is also interested in medical devices and diagnostic technologies and has specific expertise in the orthopedic space, where several of the groups investments lie. Healthcare IT is also a focus area with most interest in consumer-oriented digital therapies, as opposed to enterprise software solutions.

The firm places a large emphasis on the management team / founders and looks to completely understand the company’s business prior to investment. The group often seeks a board seat along with an investment, but it is not necessarily required
