Beer & Partners Life Sciences Division
About the Life Sciences Division
There is clearly a case for making space for life sciences related investments in an Angel investment portfolio...
There are tremendous Life Sciences opportunities related to diagnostics, medical devices, drugs, IT, instruments and cleantech - to name a few areas.
The capitalisation of Life Science businesses in public markets and in private hands is massive. Powerful Life Sciences industries, wanting to sustain their growth, have well developed appetites for innovation, acquisition and in-licensing.
In-licensing is a well developed practice in the Life Sciences sector. Many of our clients expect to reach a highly satisfactory level of growth with licence deals and then exit before their product is actually used by a customer. There are also plenty of areas in which modest capital can bring a business to full commercialisation and exit opportunities within quite short timescales - in some cases, such as pre-IPO businesses, less than a year.
We are presenting clients in the following areas, in which businesses can make a real difference:
- improvements in diagnosing, treating and preventing diseases, including through use of drugs
- improvements to surgical procedures
- preserving against harmful toxins - naturally occurring and malicious
Productivity in food chains
- eliminating contamination and improving quality of food
- eliminating disease and waste
Mitigation of carbon emissions and pollution
- harnessing natural processes to produce food and fuels
We are finding investors who have deep connections and knowledge of the relevant industries and we are mixing them with those who simply like the sector because of the potential returns and the chance for the business to make a meaningful difference to people's lives. We are also seeing institutional investors investing alongside individuals and we are seeing Beer investors accepting active board appointments.
