3 Strategies for Healthcare Venture Capital Investing

It’s not surprising that venture investments in the healthcare tech arena were especially lucrative as there has been sizable growth in alternative care and provider operations.

One of the largest players in the healthcare venture funding market, The Silicon Valley Bank, reported that U.S. healthcare venture fundraising reached an all-time high of $10.7 billion in 2019. It’s not surprising that venture investments in the healthcare tech arena were especially lucrative as there has been sizable growth in alternative care and provider operations.

The Traditional Way

In the past, venture investing has predominantly been in huge medical centers such as the Mayo and Cleveland clinics. These mammoth organizations have highly invested in faculty-created inventions and have provided seed money for many promising start-ups.

Getting Outside Help

This is basically asking an outside investor to develop and run a corporate venture capital program. They do all the legwork by looking for innovations to test, refine, and scale with the intention of bringing them to market. They often do this by creating simulation beta environments and consumer testing. This strategy is also deployed by heavy healthcare hitters like Providence St. Joseph Health and Cedars-Sinai.

Betting on Yourself

Many organizations explore investment opportunities within. For example, creating a technology wing to test innovations like 3-D printing and augmented reality. This type of strategy can fit well with long-term goals, especially if the desire is to partner with vendors, researchers, and venture capitalists like Revere Partners.

Vision
Our investment thesis

The dental sector remains ripe for disruption, though has not seen the influx of investment capital that many other industries, including similar healthcare industries, have seen in the recent past. Our research shows that an exceptional investment opportunity exists in the dental sector, particularly in early-stage companies. The dental industry consists of many large corporations, private practices, and start-ups with great ideas, but they are fragmented and disconnected. Revere seeks to bring those disparate pieces together — Connecting like-minded founders or compatible products and services with the investment dollars and industry leaders they require to grow their businesses. We identify and elevate high-growth product and service sectors within dentistry that can ultimately optimize outcomes for both providers and their patients, serving in all roles from lead investor to strategic investor to founder-friendly advisor— and are always looking for an opportunity to follow on in future rounds.
