London-Based Investment Firm Seeks Highly Disruptive Medical Device Technologies in USA or Europe, Can Invest Up to $10M

26 Jul

A London-based firm invests in venture to expansion stage life sciences companies, investing from Series B rounds and on. The firm looks to invest in companies that are in clinical trials or are close to/just received approval by the FDA (or CE mark in Europe), but will consider pre-clinical companies in rare cases, when the technology is a good fit and opens up a new therapeutic domain. Initial investments are typically $8-10 million, with the possibility of follow-on investments. Half of the firm’s investments are in Europe and half are in the US.

The firm’s primary investment theme is in medical devices, but is only interested in devices that are highly disruptive in existing markets or which represent completely new markets. The firm will consider any indication but is particularly interested in products providing a more efficient solution for the healthcare system (minimally invasive, improved health economics) that are relevant to the aging population. Indications of interest include cardiovascular applications, neuromodulation, neurostimulation, respiratory and orthopedics. The firm will also consider diagnostics companies.

The firm prefers to invest in companies with strong management teams led by serial entrepreneurs. The firm likes to be an active investor, taking a board seat for their portfolio companies, often leading funding rounds. They are also often helping to recruit experts to the board or to management positions in the company via their extensive network in the medtech space.
