This week in the summer reading series, we explore the current categories of early stage life science investors. As a result of the significant changes the investor landscape has undergone in the past few years, many traditional players have moved downstream to later stage investments or out of the space entirely, and new faces have stepped in to fill the void. Understanding what motivates these different groups and how they operate is crucial when looking for a successful financial partnership.
Chapter 4 of The Life Science Executive's Fundraising Manifesto "Categories of Life Science Investors" explains how and why the funding landscape has changed, the types of investors who are currently funding companies, and, in general, the approach these entities take toward investing. We hope this text proves to be informative. Next week we will turn the focus inward with Chapter 5: "Knowing Who and What You Are, and Where You Fit."
