HealthCap is a venture fund dedicated solely to companies innovating in the life sciences. They’re based out of Sweden, but are a major frontrunner in this industry throughout the United States, Europe, and the UK.
They tend to stick to multi-million dollar seed and later rounds of funding for innovative, life changing technologies that disrupt their current markets and competitors. With less than 50 investments as of 2016, they have a shocking 10 IPOs and 3 total acquisitions to their name, meaning this fund is great at picking winners. Investments include: GenSight Biologics, Vaxin, Strongbridge Biopharma, BONESUPPORT, Nexstim, Cardoz, Oncos, CoreValve, and many others. Make sure your company and vision matches up with them perfectly before taking the time to contact HealthCap.
