Hot Investor Mandate 4: Midwest VC Invests in Cardiovascular and Orthopedic Devices

10 Aug

A venture capital firm based in Michigan, USA is investing exclusively in early stage and seed investments in medical device companies. The firm provides seed, first, or second round of financing, typically in equity. The initial investment in a company ranges from $250K to $3M, with follow-on financing rounds. Accordingly, the firm invests between $2-6M over the life of an investment. The firm typically invests in companies that are based in the US, but may consider exceptional opportunities abroad. The firm is actively seeking new investment opportunities.

The firm is specifically looking for medical devices that address cardiovascular, orthopedic indications. The firm has no clinical requirements and will invest in design stage. The product must be based on strongly protected IP.

The firm prefers to invest in companies that are not looking to develop their own sales team, but rather developing a technology that can be sold at a healthy premium to a company which already has the requisite sales and marketing teams in place. The firm generally takes a board seat, but is not a requirement. In addition, the firm prefers to assume a role on the company’s scientific advisory board. The firm is looking for companies with a strong and experienced management team.
