Hot Investor Mandate: VC Firm with US and Canada Operations Invests in Early-Stage Medical Devices and Diagnostics Companies Globally

21 Nov

A venture capital firm with offices in USA and Canada is making investments out of its vintage 2017, fourth fund and is exclusively focused on supporting entrepreneurs commercializing advanced materials and advanced material process innovations within four verticals: energy, electronics, health, and sustainability. The firm typically makes initial investments in the $1M-$4M range and up to $8M over the life of the investment (more or less may be initially invested depending on the deal). The firm prefers to lead deals but will also participate in a syndicate as a co-investor. The firm has strategic LP relationships in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and North America and invests globally.

Within healthcare, the firm is interested in medical devices and diagnostics whose underlying technology is enabled by advanced materials or advanced material process innovations. The firm has a particular interest in 3D bioprinting, diagnostics and genomics/proteomics R&D applications. The firm does not make investments in pharmaceuticals/therapeutics. Past investments have included a manufacturer of semiconductor radiation detectors enabling a new generation of detection and imaging equipment, a company developing a disruptive 3D bioprinting platform, and a company developing functional surfaces with anti-microbial and anti-fouling properties.

The firm prefers to work with experienced management teams, but is open to working with less experienced entrepreneurs or incomplete management teams given the firm can add value through corporate strategy and operational experience to help accelerate development. The firm prefers to invest in revenue-generating companies but is open to evaluating pre-revenue companies as well. The firm typically seeks a board seat along with investment.
