Old Fashion Approach to Venture Capital
Easton Capital is a leading Venture Capital Fund with a sector focus in the life sciences. Our professionals have decades of experience in all aspects of the life sciences, providing unique financial, strategic, operational perspectives and resources to entrepreneurs who want to grow their business.
Our mission is to invest only in those opportunities that offer services or products that can materially improve the healthcare people receive or reduce its cost. In addition, we take an old fashioned view of venture capital. Transactions must be structured to maximize potential returns and minimize risks in all economic environments. That philosophy translates into financing companies that have capital efficient business models (i.e., generally require no more than an additional $10-20 million to get to market and become cash flow positive or be acquired). We recognize that not all our investments will succeed. However, our model means that when they do, they will generate significant multiples and when they don't, our losses will be measured in the millions, not the tens of millions of dollars.
Our approach directly aligns our interests and goals with entrepreneurs and managers of the enterprises we support. Like they, we want to maximize returns, while minimizing risks, on the lowest reasonable capital base, insuring that they incur the least amount of dilution.
Our strength as a venture capital firm derives from a deep well-seasoned team with a breath of diverse experience in science, technology, clinical affairs, investment, operations, and business development. Members of the team have participated in running more than $1 billion in investment funds during their careers, have helped launch more than 100 companies, and made a number of investments that generated returns in excess of 100x.
