Business model

The business strategy is based on funding and building game-changing healthcare technology companies towards value inflection points and eventual exit including through a trade sale or public listing.

 

The Group sources opportunities from global institutions, leading technology incubators and its deep healthcare network. In the early stages of the company’s development the Group provides extensive management support including technical guidance, administrative support, legal, IP and commercial expertise.

 

 

As companies mature through key milestones the Group will recruit experienced industry leading CEOs to drive the next phase of growth, attract additional external capital and secure favourable exits.

 

The Group aims to grow the equity value of its interests in its portfolio companies through various key value inflection points such as clinical trials, regulatory approvals, collaborative funding arrangements, first revenues and follow-on growth. In turn, these value inflection points create exit or out-licensing opportunities for the Group through trade sales, licensing arrangements with larger market participants or IPOs.
