Leveraging Our Experience and History of Success.
From concept to commercialization, we are experts at guiding and building innovative life science companies.
Pappas Ventures is our firm’s flagship business. For more than 27 years, we have invested in opportunities where we see the potential to generate superior risk-adjusted returns by focusing on novel life science products and technologies that have the potential to address significant unmet medical needs. We focus on opportunities where we have an advantage due to our specific expertise, insight or market reach.
From the very beginning we have invested across the United States and Canada, with a focus on underserved markets outside of California and the Northeast, such as Montreal and our home territory of Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, among other regions, that produce world class medical research but don’t get as much attention from venture investors as they deserve.
