Healthcare is going through a major transition phase and is ripe for innovation, that much we know for sure. We also know that innovation comes from talented leadership, backed by smart investors.
iSelect is working with industry experts to accelerate this transition, partnering with leading medical professionals and institutions to help make promising healthcare innovations a reality. Our approach is based around the simple idea that true change in health and medicine is going to come from the inside, from the doctors, researchers, and other healthcare professionals who are doing this work every day.
We want to partner with them. We want to support their ideas. We want to help their companies grow.
We work with major research centers to find the most promising opportunities, and we work with doctors to match our diligence and deal sourcing with their medical expertise to back the select few companies with the most promise. So far, this includes companies focused on chronic pain, cancer, epilepsy, pulmonary fibrosis and more.
They are the experts in healthcare. iSelect is the expert in venture investing. Together we can solve this problem.
