Investment Thesis

Our investment thesis is simple. The world is decades behind in pandemic preparedness. We aim to fix that.

And, we are looking for like-minded investors who would like to help us with this.

COVID-19 has exposed our lack of resilience across the board. We’ve all observed fissures in our fragile pre-pandemic systems, and rapid shifts in supply and demand. Some industries will never be the same. And, markets will be made.

We look for opportunities where sustaining demand outstrips supply. We then invest in companies with agile and scalable technologies that we believe can achieve supply dominance — the companies delivering innovative medical countermeasures and defining the future of work, life, and healthcare.

In assessing these opportunities, we first look at our unifying investment themes.

Unifying Investment Themes

Pandemic Solutions

We invest in companies tackling BIG problems with significant ROI potential with or without a pandemic.

Customer Focus

We seek customer focused technology solutions and business models that are novel, differentiated, and defensible.

Deep & Broad Impact

We invest in future resilience. Our goal is to touch many lives in meaningful ways.

Amazing Teams

We love working with amazing, coachable founders with phenomenal teams who love what they do
and do it well.

Investing in Scalable Solutions

The Fund will typically invest in three types of companies within its investment framework:

In-market, successful startups with medical countermeasures and pandemic tech offerings who are ready to scale their business and impact

In-market and successful startups focused on a different application who could easily adapt and scale their offerings to provide medical countermeasures or technologies that make us more resilient

Startups with relevant, scalable and at least somewhat validated solutions that can get to market faster with a small investment

Investment Thesis – What We’re Not

Not a Relief Fund

The Fund is not a “relief” fund.  In line with our investment thesis, we like companies that have truly innovative, differentiated, and defensible offerings. We look for huge market potential and the ability to deliver upper quartile returns. Visit our Portfolio page to view example companies.

Not Just Healthcare

The Pandemic Impact Fund invests well beyond healthcare.  We seek opportunities that help:

  • find pandemics faster such as medical countermeasures in surveillance, testing, GIS and population health
  • fix it faster such as drug development platforms, medical devices for drug delivery, and telemedicine
  • make work, work or life work for that matter, such as disinfection technologies, remote collaboration tools, teleconnection, robotics, cybersecurity, and EdTech
  • do better next time such as supply chain, process and manufacturing resilience, communication, and food security.

Opportunities abound!
