Healthcare Capital Fundraising List 2012 Q4
The glass is half full discount canada goose chilliwack windswept for sale . I’ve been tracking the fundraising activity of healthcare venture firms for the last few years. and I estimate that there are about 250 VC firms actively investing in healthcare innovation worldwide. In contrast. a list I created ten years ago. at InfraReDx. included about 500 healthcare VC firms. Times are tight in 2013, canada goose banff m cheap .
Why the drop.
The short answer is that limited partners (AKA LP’s – the endowments. pension funds. money managers. sovereign wealth funds. etc canada goose chilliwack windswept for sale . who invest their money with VC’s) are allocating less of their money to venture capital. especially healthcare venture capital. One medical device VC told me that he first has to get an LP to consider investing in venture. among the myriad of other financial products available. Once the LP commits to venture. the VC has to sell them on healthcare venture canada goose chilliwack windswept for sale shop . rather than consumer internet or other tech opportunities, canada goose trillium measurements 2015 . Once the LP agrees to place some funds in healthcare venture canada goose chilliwack windswept for sale . the VC must overcome a predisposition to healthcare IT cheap canada goose chilliwack windswept for sale . and persuade them to invest in medical devices and biotech canada goose chilliwack windswept for sale .
It’s not a question of historical returns. Bruce Booth of Atlas Ventures demonstrates that biotech returns in the last five years have been at least as strong as those in other venture sectors. But past performance is no guarantee of future outcomes canada goose chilliwack windswept for sale 2015 . and LP’s fear one major macro-trend. around the world. national healthcare spending must be cut real canada goose jassen op afbetaling . so demand for drugs and devices must go down.
To turn this perception around. the medical device industry must think and act disruptively canada goose hybridge lite woman store online . We must develop products that drive down healthcare costs while improving outcomes. We must take on costly chronic diseases with minimally invasive therapies. as Ardian did for hypertension, canada goose merino wool bomber sales . CardioMems did for heart failure. and Asthmatx did for asthma Amazon ca canada goose mystique outlet store .
When we can demonstrate to LP’s that medical devices are driving down health care costs canada goose fur shedding for sale . money will return to our sector in a big way canada goose chilliwack windswept for sale . Until we do. the 250 or so funds on my latest list will have to do. You can find my latest list of active healthcare venture investors here.
