Doing Well. Doing Good. That’s how we see our healthcare practice. Doing well is measured by our community’s consistency in taking raw but novel concepts and creating important, successful businesses. Doing good relates to the mission and aspirations of our companies. It means improving the lives and wellbeing of the people they serve. We want to create and invest in companies that provide meaningful and lasting benefit to patients around the world.
Our healthcare community includes some of the most important entrepreneurial investigators, physicians, and executives in science and healthcare today, and this network only gets stronger with time and success.
Together, we bring expertise in all areas of drug, medical device, and healthcare service development. From complex clinical trial design to medical device and healthcare services reimbursement; our community and healthcare team have worked successfully across all stages and areas of company development.
We’re not afraid to go early. This means not just seeding companies, but often working with academics and entrepreneurs at the ideation stage, months or years before a company is formed. We are committed, long-term partners, supporting these companies through their growth. We also invest at later rounds and provide growth equity to revenue generating, high-growth businesses.
