Venture Capital Firm Invests Globally in Tech-Based Diagnostic & Digital Health Companies, Especially Those Seeking China Market Entry

9 Aug

A venture capital firm with over 15 years of experience is looking to invest in tech-based digital health and diagnostics companies looking to expand to the Chinese market. The firm primarily invests in European companies, but will consider companies based in the US as well. The firm looks to leverage their connections to China and the Chinese market on behalf of its portfolio companies. The firm looks to invest between $2-10M in companies, taking a 15-30% equity stake. The firm prefers to be a lead investor, taking an active role in their portfolio companies, and will invest in about 2 companies a year, depending on their fund cycle. In cases where the firm does not invest funds, they are also willing to offer consulting services for equity, connecting companies with strategic partners in China.

The firm has an additional partnership model that, instead of direct investment, licenses technologies through a Chinese platform company, acting as a focused distributor for entry into the Chinese market. This is the firm’s alternate investment approach to bringing these technologies to the Chinese market, by utilizing this Chinese platform company to serve as their portfolio company’s representative in China to navigate the regulatory environment and spearhead all of the sales and marketing.

The firm is interested in tech companies that are not consumer focused. The firm looks for companies such as diagnostics tools or AI/machine learning technologies in the healthcare space. The firm has some experience with pathology diagnostic related companies, but is willing to consider other areas as well. The firm prefers to invest in a few companies within the same area, choosing complementary technologies between their portfolio companies. The firm will consider companies with technologies that are in development or in pilot stages.

The firm is an active investor and takes a board seat for every company in which they invest.
