The firm is focused on investing in the most promising life science companies in the fields of biotechnology, therapeutics, medical technology, diagnostics and digital health. With funds totaling EUR 1.0 billion, and more than EUR 430 million committed to life sciences, the firm has been actively supporting world class private companies translating true innovation into successful businesses with exceptional growth.
