Hot Investor Mandate 1: Canada-Based Family Office Interested in Early-Stage Medtech and Healthcare IT, Including AI/Big Data Applications

18 Jan

A multi-family office based in Canada has historically focused on the mining, oil and gas industries, but is beginning to become more involved with direct investments in the early stage healthcare space. Initial investments can range from $500k – $5M, but has a large network of family offices that they may syndicate with on larger deals. The group is flexible in terms of financing structures, and is open to straight equity in priced financing rounds as well as convertible notes, depending on the stage and specifics of the deal. The group has the capability to lead, but has no preference and will also co-invest as a syndicate, and is focused on companies in the U.S. and Canada.

The group is fairly new to the healthcare space and is primarily focused on the medtech and healthcare IT sectors, and is open to a variety of technologies/companies in these areas. The group has a specific interest in AI/big data applications in healthcare, and the primary screening criteria for all prospective companies being that the company have a very scalable business model. Further, the group looks for companies that have exhibited some sort of traction or customer support. In the medtech space, the group will look at medical devices pre-FDA approval on a secondary basis.

The group invests in companies in North America, but has no strict requirements for companies or management teams. The group does not require a board seat along with an investment.
