A venture capital firm headquartered in Western Europe closed their first fund in 2012 and the portfolio companies have advanced into clinical stages, raised additional funding and one of the companies has recently completed an exit. The firm recently raised a second fund for Pre-Seed, Seed, and Series A investments with a focus in technology transfer in all four life science sectors. The firm invests €1-2M as a seed investment in the form of equity or convertible notes to help companies advance into preclinical proof of concept, and can continue investing up to €6M. If additional funds are needed, the firm seeks co-investments from the strong network of investors they have in Europe. The firm is also looking to expand this network into the US as well. The firm is looking for investments across Europe.

The firm invests in all four life science sectors, but has a particular focus on therapeutics. Within therapeutics the firm has an interest in cutting edge technologies in advanced therapies, gene and cell therapy, gene editing and synthetic biology. The firm is agnostic to subsector and indication and will invest in pre-clinical companies and follow the companies through the development of the project with additional investors. The firm is open to all 3 classes of medical devices.

The firm looks for companies with a scientific founder, and preferably a C Level executive with a track record in biotech or pharmaceutical companies.
