Hot Mandates: A European VC

25 May

The firm is a VC based in Italy. The firm has just completed the investment period of the third fund and raising their fourth fund, with a target fund size of at least $200M. While their third fund is broader in scope in Life Sciences, the firm’s fourth fund will be focused specifically on therapeutics. Around 50% of their new fund will be dedicated to venture building, and the other half will be dedicated to traditional venture investing. The firm will invest in European and Israeli companies, and will invest from lead identification to IND-stage, although the firm is open to investing in clinical-stage companies. The firm will invest between $5-25M per investment (seed, series A, series B).

The firm is looking to invest only in therapeutics. Within therapeutics, the firm is agnostic to modality. The firm is primarily interested in the indications of oncology (particularly glioblastoma, pancreatic cancer and sarcoma), rare diseases and CNS disorders, particularly those with a genetic origin. The firm is interested in First-In-Class and Best-In-Class therapeutics, but may consider repurposed therapeutics for CNS only.

The firm is interested in investing in experienced management teams. The firm prefers to co-invest, and may take a board seat, but does not require it.
