Focus is what makes us unique

In the broad health care landscape, we’ve chosen to invest in a select number of areas where the challenges are great and the opportunities are massive.

Clinical
tools

Inventing the next generation of patient-centric technologies that will raise the standard of care and deliver higher-quality outcomes.

Population
health

Helping payers and providers better manage risk and build new business models to capitalize on the shift from volume-based to value-based care.

Consumer-centric
health care

Developing automated, personalized applications that will empower consumers to become active participants in their own care.

Business services
and infrastructure

Creating solutions that use technology to streamline business processes and improve operational efficiency in healthcare.

Within these sectors, we participate in opportunities across all stages of development

  • With individuals and teams who have a business plan but no formal infrastructure in place
  • With early-stage companies who may have angel-round financing in place and are looking for a significant equity investor
  • With venture funds who are seeking additional participation in an existing company or partnership
  • With established companies seeking growth capital, joint ventures, or co-development partnerships
