Hot Investor Mandate: Healthcare-Focused Cross Border Firm Invests Up to $25M in High Potential Opportunities with China Angle

20 Dec

A healthcare-focused venture capital firm formed in 2017 manages 2 funds, a RMB denominated fund and a parallel USD fund. The firm generally seeks to make equity investments into emerging life science companies in seed and venture stages; however, the fund also considers commercial-stage companies, depending on the opportunity. The investment size of the USD fund ranges from $5 – $25 million. For the RMB fund, typical investment size is RMB $30-150 million. The firm currently focuses on China-based companies or overseas businesses with a China angle.

The firm is looking for new investment opportunities across a wide spectrum of life science sectors, including Therapeutics, Diagnostics, Biotech R&D Services, Medical Technology and Healthcare IT. The firm is agnostic to disease indications but is most interested in areas with large market potential, including Diabetes, Cardiovascular, Musculoskeletal System and Connective Tissue, Diseases of the Eye and Oncology. Rare diseases are generally less of interest. The firm is open to invest in both small molecules and biologics, and it looks for all classes of devices. The funds are most interested in companies in preclinical and early-clinical stage, but they are open to companies in late-clinical and growth stage, on a case-by-case basis.

The firm will only invest in private companies. The firm is looking to be an active investor, sometimes taking a board seat post-investment.
