Hot Investor Mandate: Global Investment Firm Focusing on Oncology Therapies Invests Up to $30M Over the Company’s Lifecycle

11 May

A global investor, headquartered in Western Europe with no geographical restrictions, is actively seeking new investment opportunities. The firm is a specialist biotech investor with an exclusive focus on therapeutics for oncology and genetic diseases. The firm makes selective investments in newly founded or early-stage companies that apply novel science and innovative technologies to bring first-in-class drug candidates to patients. Typically, the firm invests in incorporated companies from seed stage onwards, and it can invest $25-30M over the lifetime of the companies. Currently, the firm is raising its fourth fund which in addition to its core strategy to invest in early stage companies, will also be used to invest in late stage financings, cross-over financings, IPO’s, and listed stock. These companies can either be portfolio companies or external companies.

In the life sciences, the firm is currently seeking new investments targeting the development of oncology therapies and therapeutics targeting genetic diseases, and is open to all types of therapeutic modalities and all indications relevant to those spaces, including platform technologies. The firm will typically not invest in medical devices or diagnostics, unless as companion to a therapeutic solution. Projects will be evaluated on solid preclinical proof-of-concept (late preclinical stage/pre-IND or early clinical), and will often fund the companies at least up to human proof-of-concept (clinical Phase Ib – Phase IIa).

At its core, the firm only invests in private companies with experienced management teams and breakthrough potential. The firm most often takes the responsibility to be lead investor, alone or in syndicate as the opportunity demands, and wants to be actively involved in the successful development and growth of its portfolio companies. To this end, the firm has several experts in oncology and genetic diseases, intellectual property, and drug development on the investment team which are available to the portfolio companies.
