The firm predominantly focuses on seed and series A and B investments in early stage biotechnology companies, as well as growth equity investments in medical devices companies. The firm’s typical investment size for early stage companies is $5M-$15M and the firm can allocate up to $35-40M total over the life of an investment. The firm focuses on companies that are based in the U.S., Canada and Europe and is actively seeking new investment opportunities.

The firm closed its new fund in early 2017 and the firm will use its diversified global investment strategy to find, form and fund innovative healthcare companies with an emphasis on novel therapeutics. This fund was highly oversubscribed and was supported by existing and new limited partners, and will invest in 20‐25 biotechnology companies in the U.S., Canada and Europe.

The firm is opportunistic in terms of subsectors and indications. The firm is interested in novel small molecule and biologic therapeutics that address immuno-oncology, orphan/rare or genetic-based diseases, inflammation, infectious diseases and specific viruses, microbiome, and fibrosis and CNS indications. The firm is also interested in regenerative medicine and gene therapy. In medical devices, the firm is generally agnostic to subsector, but is more interested in revenue-generating devices that address cardiovascular, orthopedic, ophthalmic and neurological disorders. The firm prefers devices with proof-of-concept and strong IP.

The firm seeks a company with a strong and experienced management team or technical experts in the relevant technology. The firm generally is flexible with management teams.
