8 Feb

The firm is investing out of its first, 2015-vintage, $275M fund and makes both seed/venture and growth stage investments ranging from $500k – $20M. The firm typically prefers straight equity investments, but will also consider convertible note financings. The firm has a fairly broad mandate, and invests evenly among enterprise software, fintech, consumer and digital health sectors. The fund’s LPs are large insurance companies, and along with capital, the firm looks to add value by providing portfolio companies direct introductions to these groups to help scale and realize their potential.

The firm plans to have digital health companies make up roughly 25% of its portfolio and will invest in consumer and B2B healthcare IT and tech-enabled health services. It is a requirement that the technology has utility for payers and providers. Some of the firm’s digital health portfolio companies include a behavior change platform that partners with insurers, Accountable Care Organizations (ACO) and Self-insured employers to provide research-based behavioral incentives for members to better manage their chronic conditions.

The firm invests in global early-stage companies with annual revenues under $5M as well as growth stage companies with annual revenues exceeding $5M. The firm will consider pre-revenue companies with strong management teams and previously successful entrepreneurs.
