Hot Investor Mandate: China-Based VC Firm With an Inaugural USD Fund Seeks Investment Opportunities in Therapeutics & Diagnostics Addressing Unmet Clinical Need

30 Mar

A venture capital firm founded in 2014 and based in China. The firm currently holds ¥3B in assets under management. Historically, the firm focused on investing only in China. However, the current fund of $300M USD is focused on opportunities in the United States. The firm invests in early-stage life science ventures from Seed to Series B. Typical initial size of investment ranges from $100k-5M USD.

The firm will consider cost-effective therapeutics and diagnostics that reach urgent and unmet clinical needs. Within therapeutics, the firm is interested in cell & gene therapy, gene editing, and organoids, and looks at pre-clinical to Phase III. Within diagnostics, the firm is open to all types of technologies and phases of development.

With an overarching focus on the aging population, the firm is interested in technologies that can improve the quality and longevity of life. The main indication areas of interest are neurological pathways, CNS, and chronic and acute pain management.

The firm does not have any requirements of the management team. Further down the road, the firm is able to support companies that are interested in entering the China market. However, having a China angle is not necessary for investment. The firm intends to act as a co-investor.
