Hot Investor Mandate 3: China-Backed Investor Group Seeks Medical Device, Data and Health Monitoring Opportunities

14 Sep

An investor group based out of New York, USA with financial backing from China in looking at US-based opportunities that they believe will translate well to the Chinese market. These opportunities do not need to already have traction in China since the firm hopes to be a Chinese partner to help them access and succeed in these markets in addition to being an investor. The firm expects to make 20-50 investments this year and is prioritizing investments in the $10-50 million USD range, but is also willing to look at earlier stage opportunities.

The firm is interested in medical devices. Specifically, medical devices related to senior care, health planning, data collection, data analysis and management, 24/7 patient monitoring systems, and devices that can help facilitate conversations between patients and caregivers. Companies they’ve worked with and still have interest for include: laser treatment devices for arthritis, devices for rehabilitation, and devices for surgery. The firm is generally less interested in pure healthcare IT. For device companies, the firm prefers that they already have FDA approval, but are willing to look at companies who are close to completing FDA pivotal trials as well.

The firm prefers companies that are ideally already revenue generating, but they are also willing to look at companies that are near revenue generation. The firm wants to work with companies who are interested in accessing the Chinese market and are willing to form a joint venture with the firm in China.
