The Healthcare industry is digitising now, and world-leading companies are being founded in Europe. As specialist investors with deep connections to the whole sector, we want to help founders capitalise on this wave of change.
The power of data, coupled with the transformative power of technology will change the future of how we prevent, diagnose, treat and manage disease. As specialist investors with deep connections to the industry, we are to help exceptional founders build important and transformative companies, that define the industry for years to come, and help patients live happier and healthier lives.
As a doctor-led, evergreen fund, we are unique.
Our core investment focus is pan-European healthtech at Seed and Series A. We do deals in a nimble, straight-forward manner without unnecessary bureaucracy. CGV has a single investor and is free from the multiple external investor (LPs) model. We don’t have to work through layers of strict internal bureaucracy before making decisions.
We understand healthcare, and know what it takes to succeed in the industry. Therefore, we have designed our firm so we are not restricted by traditional fund structures, which means we can invest in an agile way, whilst thinking in the long-term horizon. We will partner with you to build a world-leading company, and we will do so on a timeline best suited to your company, and your industry.
We are one of the only healthtech funds in the world with a managing partner who
is a senior physician. We have deep sector experience of understanding the end-user (patients), customers (hospitals and primary care) and technology. We also have an expansive network across the whole healthtech ecosystem. These core competencies, backed by extensive investment knowledge and access to capital in an evergreen fund makes us a unique player in this market.
Fiona and Søren met at London Business School in 2015 where they were both part of the executive MBA class. Despite coming from very different backgrounds and cultures, they came to business school with the ambition of wanting to have an impact on the world. Investing in healthtech is their way of trying to do this by bringing together their expertise and diverse worldviews.
