Hot Investor Mandate 4: Bay Area Venture Capital Looks to Invest in Mobility and Data-Driven Technologies in Life Sciences and Healthcare

8 Feb

A Silicon Valley-based venture capital firm founded in 2012 currently has $300M AUM and investing from its third, $100M fund. The firm focuses on early-stage investments from Seed to Series A, and initial size of investment can range from $500K to up to $3M. The firm reserves a significant part of the fund as follow-on investment. With the current fund, the firm seeks to invest in a total of 6-8 companies, with a preference for companies that are within proximity to their office in the Bay area.

The firm is interested in technologies that incorporate mobility and data. In terms of life sciences and healthcare, this includes digital health, AI and big data in discovery, precision medicine, etc. The firm has made several investments in digital health companies – examples include a mobile coaching app that promotes smarter decisions and better outcomes, a digital health platform for chronic disease management, etc.

The firm looks for driven management teams – relevant industry experience is a definite plus, but not an absolute requirement. The firm works closely with portfolio companies, providing companies with the needed resources and expertise to achieve scalability. The firm prefers to act as the lead investor, typically taking a board seat in such cases.
