Additional Information

VC Investments in North American Healthcare

Since 2006, both the volume and the value of VC investments have decreased, but the decrease in value was considerably high. There is a clear trend showing the increase in low value deals and a good reduction in the number of high value deals.

The early stage investments have decreased compared to late-stage funding.

Attractive Regions

A majority of the deals were made on the West Coast, including in Alaska, California, Hawaii, Oregon, and Washington.

Attractive Segments

Healthcare equipment, biotechnology, and pharmaceuticals are the leading segments that received investments both in terms of value and volume between 2006 and 2011.

Exit Market

With the doors of IPO almost shut for the venture capital investors, they are now looking at new routes for exits.

With the increase of strategic investments and corporate venturing in the pharmaceuticals and biotechnology segments, mergers and acquisitions and strategic buyouts have become attractive exit options.
