Hot Investor Mandate 4: Venture Capital Firm Focuses on Preclinical Stage Treatments for Aging and Age Relate Diseases

3 Aug

A venture capital firm founded in 2016 with headquarters in Germany makes 2-4 equity investments in the range from $1-5M per year. The firm has completed their fundraising in April 2017 and is actively seeking new investments globally, with a focus in USA and Europe.

The firm invests in technologies that can treat age-related disease and damages associated with aging, such as altered protein homeostasis, cellular senescence, stem cell exhaustion, etc. The firm will consider companies working in therapeutics, diagnostics, nutritional products and advanced therapy medicinal products (gene therapy, cell therapy, tissue engineering) as long as they are relevant to the firm’s mission in targeting the basic mechanisms contributing to age-related disease. However, medical devices are currently not an area of focus. In therapeutics, the firm looks mostly at pre-clinical technologies with a validated proof-of-concept. The firm will consider companies in their later stages but prefers working with early-stage companies to provide company building and strategic support.

The firm can work with all types of management teams. The firm places higher importance in the actual science or technology in development as well as solid IP position. The firm seeks to work closely with their portfolio companies and can assist with building and structuring a full management team. As the firm generally comes in as the first institutional investor, they prefer to lead rounds and take a board seat.
