Health & TechBio

We believe the next decade will be transformational for healthcare and life sciences. 

Advances in computing, technology, and biology are compounding at a dizzying pace. The case for change has never been clearer, yet healthcare remains one of the least digitized sectors of the economy. 

We get excited about founders who are laying the foundation for a more connected and data-driven ecosystem. Those enabling a future that is more personalized,  preventative, and predictive. 

If you’re working on core healthcare or life sciences infrastructure or solutions that can dramatically move the needle on access, costs, or outcomes in areas such as home health, back office automation, clinical trials tech, AI-enabled R&D, pharma and provider software tools, let’s talk!
