Lundbeckfonden Ventures is an evergreen venture fund investing internationally in life science companies. Our focus is primarily projects and companies with development candidates close to or in clinical development. We are particularly interested in speciality pharma product opportunities and in technology platforms that have demonstrated their value in generating development candidates.
Since 2009, we have invested in 31 companies in USA and Europe and have an active portfolio of around 20 companies representing a broad spectrum of therapeutic fields. Annually we invest 350 to 400 million Danish kroner.
We work internationally and as lead investor when investing in Europe. We are determined to add value to our investments and will involve ourselves actively in our portfolio companies and work in close collaboration with their management and boards.
We are seeking experienced and capable management teams that are committed to resolving the sometimes difficult challenges involved in development of drugs aimed at unmet medical needs. A well-defined plan is crucial as is strong and enforceable patent protection and a sound understanding of the relevant markets and their regulatory frameworks.
The starting point for us is a non-confidential presentation or summary of the project or company. If it falls within our strategic focus area, we will be prepared to enter into a confidentiality agreement and evaluate confidential information. Each investment is potentially a long-term commitment and therefore it is important for us to meet the team and get to know you during our evaluation. Consequently, the next step will be to arrange a meeting where we can discuss data, plans and investment proposals. Continued interest will lead to a thorough due diligence exercise before final deal negotiation.
