We favor companies that are founded by healthcare industry veterans in regard to their professional career – focusing on physicians, researchers, health administrators, etc. with 10+ years of experience. We then support these subject matter experts with the key tools needed to build digital products, develop solid business models, and fundraising for their idea. We want to you to use your knowledge to develop products that have market applications.

We prefer “venture” to “capital”.

We are entrepreneurs, not just financiers. We prefer to invest in early-stage companies because we believe that we can cultivate an elite class digital health tools for the globe. Being a VC requires deep understanding of the company’s market and product, and rounded support for these founders will accelerate the creation of impactful digital solutions.

With a deep network, expertise, and access to capital, entrepreneurs will thrive. We are continuously improving our approach, learning about your idea, and spending time with the founders to create a cohesive vision.
