What's new

Healthcare in complex.

Our strategy for selecting healthcare investments and adding value is proven and agile. We invest across stages, geographic regions, and sectors, with expertise spanning biotechnology, bio-pharma, healthcare IT, AI, DML, AR/VR, medical technology and synthetic biology.
We are active across the entire value chain of life sciences investments, from seed to later-stage, with a focus on healthcare, impact and sustainability. Each of our funds is a manifestation of our ability to recognize opportunity and unlock its potential with a dedicated team and a tailored strategic approach.

Our basic Investment principles

We typically invest between $1m to $10m over a venture’s lifetime, with a first investment between $500k to $5m.

We take minority ownership stakes, usually between 5-25%. We play from (pre-) seed funding through IPO, as long as there is a good strategic fit.

We can lead rounds or follow another investor’s lead. We prefer to syndicate deals to ensure there is sufficient working capacity for future rounds.

We are active partners and usually offer to serve on the Board of the start-ups in our portfolio.

Our goal is to transform healthcare
one investment at a time.

By supporting diverse entrepreneurs who create and build breakthrough companies and treatments.
