Typical investments range from $1-5M, but the fund will make larger tranched investments in case of therapeutic opportunities. The firm invests in companies worldwide. The firm can act as either a lead or a co-investor role. The firm prefers to invest at company formation or seed stages, with the latest stage they will invest being Series A.

The firm has four current focus areas: women’s health/fertility, life sciences tools & diagnostics, biotech (novel therapeutics), and PMA medical devices. The firm is interested broadly across all indications within these areas.

The firm prefers to invest in teams with a strong track record but has also worked with first-time entrepreneurs. The firm may or may not take a board seat in a portfolio company. If a company is seeking to expand into Asia, the firm can leverage the capabilities of the corporate to help companies with regulatory affairs, market access, and distribution, especially in the life sciences tools and fertility markets.
