Hot Investor Mandate 2: Spain Investment Firm Broadly Seeking Life Science Opportunities in USA & Europe, with Focus on Pre-Clinical Therapeutic Assets

15 Feb

A firm with offices in Spain invests in early-stage companies in the life science and technology sectors. The firm makes investments of EUR 2-6 million in seed and early stage financing rounds. The firm makes both equity and venture debt investments. The firm focuses on investment opportunities in Spain but will also consider deals elsewhere in Europe or in North America.

In the life sciences, the firm focuses on therapeutics and also invests in diagnostics, medical devices and healthcare IT. In therapeutics, the firm focuses on preclinical opportunities with a focus on assets that are 12-18 months prior to IND. In diagnostics, the firm focuses on opportunities with an identified biomarker or a completed retrospective study. In medical devices and healthcare IT, the firm only invests in companies that are very close to commercialization or already generating revenues. The firm generally does not invest in large indication areas such as diabetes, metabolic disease, cardiovascular and renal disease. The firm’s areas of interest include oncology, CNS, dermatology, and ophthalmology (particularly front of eye diseases). The firm has invested in rare diseases but it is not the firm’s sole focus.

In therapeutic opportunities, the firm seeks companies that have obtained proof of concept data in animal studies and can reach human clinical trials with no more than EUR 6 million in further private investment.
In Spain, the firm typically leads investment rounds, and may syndicate with other firms or leverage public funding. In North America, the firm seeks to co-invest in rounds led by top-tier investors.
