Our team is led by four Managing Partners who have worked together to create and build life sciences companies for over twenty years. Our team brings extensive scientific, clinical, regulatory, operational and finance experience to each of our portfolio companies.
We play an active role in helping entrepreneurs build successful companies. Our time, energy and passion is devoted to building early stage life sciences opportunities. As a result, your company will be compared only against other early stage opportunities. So, at CLS, your early stage biotech medical device or health care information technology company will not be compared against a PIPE investment in an undervalued Phase III company, as an example. Early stage is what we do, and all we do.
We understand that early stage companies do not have all the answers and do not have all the data. We understand that many basic questions need investment capital to answer, and we understand that development plans and milestones are subject to lots of uncertainty and change. We understand what it takes to build a management team from scratch, and we invest in companies with little or no existing management. In short, we understand what it is to be an early stage entrepreneur, because each of us has been one.
Please look carefully at our investment criteria and our team, and if we are the type of partner that you would like to work with, please contact us.
