Hot Investor Mandate 1: Corporate VC Arm of Large Cleantech Company Seeking Opportunities in Biotech and Healthcare

14 Dec

A corporate venture arm of a China-based company that that focuses on water treatment, sludge treatment, solid waste disposal, and special pump manufacturing, is currently operating a $25M USD fund and a $200M RMB fund that focus on cleantech, hardware, healthtech, and biotechnology. In addition, the firm is also in the process of developing a new acceleration program in the USA dedicated for cleantech innovations. Unlike many other corporate VC arms that have a slow internal investment process, the firm is able to proceed quickly with their decision making process.

The firm has invested in 10 companies since its establishment in 2017 and is actively seeking investment opportunities in the sectors mentioned above. The firm will initially invest up to $1M in equity. The firm works closely with the local government in China and utilizes domestic resources to support company growth in China, but China angle is not necessary for investment. The firm is open to companies globally.

The firm invests broadly in the life sciences and healthcare sectors, including therapeutics, medical devices, and diagnostics. However, the firm will most likely not invest in healthcare IT technologies. The firm is establishing a hospital in China and is most interested in technologies that could be integrated in hospital systems. The firm is agnostic in terms of the company’s stage of development.

The firm is interested in working with companies supported by an experienced management team with strong expertise. The firm is open to acting as a lead or co-investor and is capable of bringing other regional investment groups to syndicate rounds.
