Creating Value Where Opportunity Lies
We invest in public development-stage and commercial-stage companies that are generating revenue, preparing for commercial launch, or operating in late stages of development. We focus on undervalued companies, primarily in the healthcare sector, and bring particular expertise in the specialty pharmaceutical industry. We are active investors that strive to cultivate attractive outcomes by working with management teams and board directors to support growth and build successful businesses.
Velan Difference and Value-add
We have accumulated decades of operating and investing experience in public and private companies, many of which we started, built and helped exit.
We offer access to our broad network of strategic partners and operators from current and former investments and supplement management teams by recruiting talented professionals and high-caliber Board members.
We invest our own money alongside external investors arriving at proper alignment between GPs and LPs.
Focus and Assistance
We make a few concentrated investments, which enables better insights and support for our portfolio companies. As active investors, we help management teams execute on numerous fronts, such as: commercialization, product development, business development, strategy, finance, social responsibility, and corporate governance.
