Partner Equity

Pioneering healthcare’s first ‘Partner Equity’ firm

With ubiquitous capital availability driven by constantly growing fund sizes, the world doesn’t need another Private Equity firm.

Our Partner Equity approach was designed for a specific kind of entrepreneur: those who seek a deep strategic partner with a “get-your-hands-dirty” approach to business building.

  • We invest personal capital, not “other people’s money”.  We care more than traditional GPs by (literally) putting our money behind the people and ideas we believe in.
  • We believe in doing fewer things better.  As such, we don’t take the portfolio approach of other investment firms. We focus on a small number of active companies to concentrate our focus and amplify our impact.
  • We invest $15M – $50M+ in capital per partnership to support growth, transformation, and value creation.

We get our hands dirty operationally, advise on critical strategic decisions given decades of healthcare expertise, and open our expansive networks to supercharge growth.
