Hot Investor Mandate: USA-Based VC Firm Invests in High Growth Opportunities in Medical Devices, Diagnostics, and Digital Health Sectors

11 Apr

A venture capital firm with multiple offices throughout the USA is investing out of a new fund just raised in early 2019. The firm makes investments in the form of equity (preferred stock) and is an activist investor; the firm prefers to lead investments, take a board seat at its portfolio companies and be actively involved in company management. The firm typically makes initial investments of $5-7m, with the potential for total investments of $15m or more. The fund makes growth investments in commercial-stage technologies, and only invests in companies headquartered in North America.

The firm invests in medical devices, diagnostics, digital health, tech-enabled services and consumer healthcare; the fund does not invest in biotech, pharmaceuticals, R&D service providers or industry tools. The firm does not invest in companies that face regulatory risk; investments are made in companies with products that have already received regulatory approval or which do not require regulatory approval. The firm only invests in companies with meaningful marketplace validation and growing revenues, where the firm’s investment could help accelerate the adoption.

The firm prefers to invest in management teams that have prior experience of working in a relevant emerging company environment, and which have significant experience in the sector their company is working in. The fund prefers to work with privately-held companies but the investment team also has past experience of PIPEs.
