Hot Investor Mandate: USA-Based Life Sciences VC Invests Up to $50M in Therapeutics Companies, With Strong Interests in Autoimmune Disease, CNS, Oncology, and More

4 Aug

A USA-based life sciences venture capital and company formation firm with billions of dollars under management is currently investing out of their latest fund that closed last year. The firm will make equity investments of approximately $30–50 million over the lifetime of the company 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.
