Hot Investor Mandate 2: Japanese Pharma Launches New Global Initiative to Invest in Early-Stage Companies

26 Apr

A wholly-owned subsidiary of a global pharmaceutical company with headquarters in Japan is focused on developing innovative products in CNS, dermatology, and pain management. In particular, the pharma has established a strong global presence in transdermal patch products, and has several established products on the market.

The pharmaceutical company is seeking novel products for potential in-licensing and partnering opportunities to strengthen their current pipeline. In addition, the company is unveiling a new initiative through which the company will provide investment to early-stage technologies for which the company could help leverage clinical development. The size of investment will largely depend on the company’s stage of development, but the company is open to invest in seed to mid-stage companies. The company is seeking global opportunities.

With the new early-stage investment initiative, the company is interested in investing and partnering beyond the current focus areas: pain, CNS, and dermatology. Because of the company’s deep expertise in transdermal technology, the company can add significant values to companies with NCEs which can be delivered by patches. The company is also interested in reformulation and repositioning opportunities. The company will consider technologies as early as in development/pre-clinical.

The company has no specific management team requirements. The company has a development and regulatory team that can help companies with advancing towards FDA approval as well as Asian market entry, particularly Japan. Because the company has many resources and support to offer to early-stage companies, experienced management team and successful track record would be a plus, but not a requirement.
