Hot Investor Mandate: Growth Capital Firm with New Fund Invests in Biotech, Medtech, and Research Tools with Capacity to Invest At Least $20M

20 Jun

A life sciences-focused growth capital firm recently raised almost $1B for their new fund, which will invest broadly in the healthcare space. The firm seeks to make venture and growth stage investments ranging from $20M-$70M in the form of equity. The fund prefers to lead or co-lead most deals and may or may not seek a board seat along with an investment. The firm has a diverse team of pharmaceutical and finance professionals and seeks to add value to portfolio companies through strategic guidance and a steady flow of capital, allowing companies to focus on developing their products and executing their business plan.

The firm focuses on the following healthcare verticals: biotech/biopharma, medical devices, and life science / research tools and diagnostics. The fund is agnostic to therapeutic area and therapeutic modality, but does favor companies developing and commercializing solutions for significant unmet and under-met medical needs. As for biopharma drug companies, the fund typically likes to see at least GLP toxicology data for pre-clinical assets but ideally early safety/tolerability and biological activity/biomarker data in humans.

The firm has no strict company or management team requirements, but favors experienced/proven management teams and entrepreneurs who are highly skilled and knowledgeable in the specific area (technology and indication area) they are pursuing.
