HighCape Capital is a growth equity fund created in 2013 by a group of highly experienced executives for the sole purpose of helping innovative Life Sciences companies transition from the initial stages of their business cycle into successful, thriving organizations. Our team members have backgrounds in founding, financing, leading, growing and exiting a variety of Life Sciences companies across multiple industry segments.
We embrace the excitement of entrepreneurship along with the attendant challenges and emotions. It is rare to find a team of investors who can say “we have sat in your seat”, but our team really has. We approach each potential partnership with the idea that combining the right capital, leadership and strategic plan is the best way to optimize the opportunity.
The HighCape Team
The HighCape team is a unique collection of investment and operational executives, all with at least 25 years’ experience across every sector and geography in the global Life Sciences industry. Wherever possible, we strive to leverage this depth of experience and expertise to ensure the success of each HighCape portfolio company.
How We Add Value
Aside from capital, we endeavor to provide value in a variety of ways to our portfolio companies. With the vast amount of expertise and experience resident within our HighCape partners and advisors, someone on our team has likely experienced whatever issue or opportunity one of our companies encounters.
We see our team providing value in three primary ways:
Leveraging Our Experience
We are a multidisciplinary team of industry veterans that brings a breadth of investment and operating experience and expertise to commercial-stage life sciences companies. Our goal is to provide that experience and insight to our companies, while always appreciating it is management that leads the companies and are ultimately responsible for the outcomes.
We take a hands-on approach to partnering with management teams to augment their commercial and operational strategies and execution. We pride ourselves on being able to “jump in” and expand the talent around the table when necessary, for example, a corporate development opportunity or recruiting a key leadership position.
We are passionate about building companies and delivering value to our limited partners and the healthcare system. Our entire team has “been there, done that”. We know the ups and downs or leading, building and exiting world-class Life Sciences companies. Our goal is to enable the passion, vision and opportunities imagined by our portfolio company leaders, while creating value for everyone involved.
