Investing in a better tomorrow for Pediatric Patients
Health Innovation Capital (HIC) is a venture capital impact investor targeting the unmet innovation needs of pediatric patients in a sector-agnostic manner that ranges from therapeutics to medical technologies and digital health
We are among the only independent U.S. Impact venture capital firms that maintains such an integrated investment thesis, impact strategy and return model.
"Children are the living messages that we send to a time we cannot see…”
John F. Kennedy
HIC is committed to ensuring that the health innovation and impact investing that the firm pursues improves the quality of life and outcomes for the most vulnerable and at-risk patient populations. We evolved from the belief that there is no silver bullet to creating a sustainable, medicinally relevant, commercially viable and investor worthy medical innovation company that is patient and outcomes driven to the core.
Health Innovation Capital is dedicated to creating a better tomorrow in pediatric health innovation.
We are a team of highly talented individuals leveraging over 125 years of collective experience in indication and pediatric population specific scientific research, medical care innovation, executive pharmaceutical leadership and healthcare venture capital. Our proprietary methodologies and processes evaluate, measure, and address the inherent risk, unmet medical need and significant upside investor potential inherent in pediatric healthcare innovation.
The unifying principles that define the historic success of HIC's partners include a commitment to an operating model that is based upon:
Discipline in our investment process
Collaboration among team members and third-party strategic relationships
Consensus building among all stake holders
Creativity in our investment structure
Execution from initial sourcing to exit
Accountability for the success of portfolio companies
Equally important is an inherent desire to increase the access to opportunities and outcomes for investors, portfolio companies, and team members. As part of this strategy, HIC works with renown medical practitioners, scientists, and thought leaders from over 30 healthcare centers of excellence in the US, Europe, and the Middle East to help evaluate and assess opportunities and to add greater insight into the medicinal relevancy and commercial viability of HIC's potential investments. Not only do these relationships provide the potential to mitigate the investment and development risk of each opportunity, but also serves as an additional high-value resource to assist with patient recruitment, trial design, and to assist with clinical research implementation.
To reinforce our commitment to the evolution of cutting-edge health innovation taking place at these centers of excellence, we have established The Health Innovation Capital Foundation, a not-for-profit organization which the firm donates an expected 10% of the General Partner's Carry Interest, or 2% of the firm's overall return performance, back to these centers of excellence to support early-stage research and development. This contribution is a true donation to support research in any area (e.g., oncology, mental health, rare diseases, etc.) that is dedicated to the advancement and innovation of pediatric care - the firm asks for nothing in return from these institutions.
