WHAT WE BELIEVE
In our investment criteria and process, we are informed by a Stanford-born methodology of health technology innovation known as Biodesign. Since 2001, Biodesign has proven to de-risk the process of new venture creation by applying a need-driven and value-based approach to reinventing healthcare with the help of technology. (To learn more about the methodology, head to The Student Guide to Biodesign, developed by a team of Stanford instructors and students who are passionate about education and making high-quality learning materials available and accessible to all.)
We see our sweet spot at seeding founders who are marrying in-depth understanding of the complex network of healthcare system participants with meaningful engineering innovation, advanced data science, and information technology-enabled products and services. From our home base in europe, we look for and support need-driven founders determined to effectively and efficiently serve these participants internationally.
We invest broadly across the european continent, the united kingdom, israel, the united states, and canada, with a collaborative approach in both the way we work and how we interact with other players in our industry. Our goal is to help thoughtful and committed teams bridge the chasm from founding to series A capital and access global markets.

Barcelona is our home. We invest across the european continent and beyond, motivated by the opportunity to tell success stories of innovation made in europe.
True innovation adds value. We are excited by tech's potential to deliver clinical and economics outcomes. We look for ways to create value across the care continuum and all specialties.

We understand the complexity of healthcare.
We connect to ecosystem players to help founders navigate the complex landscape of healthcare stakeholders. Locally, and, by bridging to US markets, methodologies, and KOLs.
We have a bias for teams that are interdisciplinary & diverse along multiple dimensions.
We believe founders building diverse, multidisciplinary teams have higher chance of success. When we invest in teams that are not, we do so with founders' commitment to meet these goals.
We believe in the power of mentorship.
We are a small core team augmented by a network of collaborators, advisors, and venture partners.
We leverage this network as part of our commitment to help our portfolio founders.
