Hot Longevity Mandates: US-Based Venture Capital Group

29 Jun

The fund is a venture capital with offices in Massachusetts and California with approximately $1.8 billion under management. The firm is currently investing out of their third fund, a $825M fund that closed in the summer of 2021. The firm will make equity investments of approximately $40–60 million across all stages of private financing and can either lead investments or co-invest. The firm considers investment opportunities worldwide.

The firm invests primarily in therapeutics and invests broadly across different therapeutic areas and modalities. Areas of high interest include precision medicine approaches, gene therapy, autoimmune diseases, oncology, neurology (particularly diseases with genetically defined populations), ophthalmology, and rare diseases. The firm generally invests from preclinical (2–3 years pre-IND) through to Phase II, and prefers to invest in assets with good animal models and/or genetic evidence to support efficacy and target validation.

The firm generally invests in privately held companies and likes to work with experienced management teams who have had prior startup successes. The firm is an active investor and the partners have deep experience in company building, and we are therefore interested in providing support on strategy, BD, recruiting and other areas of active management in addition to providing capital.
