Hot Investor Mandate 14: Global PE Firm Invests Up to $20M in Therapeutics, Medtech, and Digital Health Companies With Strong Clinical Data

4 Jan

A life science investment arm of a global private equity firm with $24 billion in assets under management may invest a total of up to $20 million per portfolio company across multiple financing rounds, and may be a lead investor or a co-investor. The firm is interested in life science opportunities worldwide. In addition to making equity investments from the life science investment arm, the firm also has another fund that invests in early growth companies in the medical device, healthcare IT and diagnostics sectors.

The life science investment arm invests in therapeutics, medical devices and diagnostics. For therapeutic investments, the fund generally looks for clinical proof of efficacy in Phase Ib or IIa trials. For PMA medical devices, the arm also requires clinical proof of efficacy data. For 510k devices and diagnostics, the arm makes growth equity investments in companies that have approved products and are in early commercialization. It is required that diagnostics have reimbursement codes. The arm will consider investments in any indication or technology area.

The growth investment arm invests in digital health, medtech and diagnostics companies with revenue streams, and uses a variety of structures to provide credit or royalty financing to early growth stage companies.

The firm invests in both experienced management teams, as well as new entrepreneurs. The firm is open to investing in both privately-held and public companies. If a management team is incomplete or inexperienced, the firm is open to working to fill or change the team.
