Hot Investor Mandate 4: Seed-Stage Venture Fund Invests in Ontario-Based Life Science Companies with Strongest Interest in Healthcare IT/Digital Health

22 Feb

A seed-stage venture capital fund that seeks to invest in Ontario-based companies operating in the cleantech, information and communication technology, life science and healthcare sectors. The firm is based out of Toronto, Canada and has been investing for over 10 years. The fund is sector-agnostic and invests in several verticals including but not limited to IT, healthcare, and cleantech. The fund makes investments up to $500K in Ontario-based startups, and typically targets 15 deals per year. The fund will invest with VCs and other institutional investors.

The fund is a generalist fund, but within the healthcare space, the focus is on healthcare IT and digital health companies whose core technology is software, whether it be enterprise solutions or more consumer-facing or point of care technologies. Traditional medical devices, biopharma/therapeutics and other life science platform technologies will be also be considered.

The firm requires the company be legally company incorporated and likes to see a formal management structure in place by the time of closing an investment. It’s not necessary that the company have revenues, but the company must have a clear understanding of their path to market and an execution strategy in place that will allow them to move faster than competitors.
