Hot Investor Mandate 13: Investment Firm with $1Bn AUM Invests Broadly in All Life Sciences Companies with European Angle

4 Jan

A venture capital firm with offices in Germany and Switzerland specializes in early-stage and growth capital investments in the Technology and Life Sciences sectors. The firm has approximately €1Bn AUM and is currently investing out of a €150M fund dedicated to the Life Sciences. Depending on the stage of the company, the firm can allocate up to €15M over the life of the investment. The firm can also lead or co-lead financing rounds of up to €30M or higher with syndication. The firm focuses on European companies but will consider US-based companies with activities in Europe. The firm is actively seeking new investment opportunities.

In the life sciences sector, the firm invests in therapeutics, medical technology, diagnostics, and digital medicine, and is opportunistic in terms of subsectors and indications. In therapeutics, the firm mainly focuses on early-stage companies with preclinical proof of concept data or about to enter the clinic, with a preference for companies developing highly innovative technology platforms. In diagnostics and medtech, the firm prefers companies with product candidates (with strong IP protection) approaching regulatory approval or companies who have already launched a first product. In digital medicine, the firm looks for data-driven technologies being applied clinically to drive meaningful change in patient outcomes.

The firm typically requests a board seat and looks for a strong and experienced management team, but will also support highly talented fledgling entrepreneurs.
