Gilde Healthcare Partners

Gilde Healthcare Partners, a rapidly growing European venture capital firm, today announced the closing of its EUR 150 million (USD 213 million) venture fund, Gilde Healthcare II (GHC II). The new fund, which is Gilde's second healthcare fund, is one of the largest venture funds raised to invest in European healthcare opportunities. GHC II was backed by current investors in Gilde Healthcare Funds, who have been joined by a small select group of new investors. The original target for GHCII was EUR 125 million. Investors were attracted by Gilde Healthcare Partners' excellent investment track record which has seen it achieve six exits in the past two years.

Gilde Healthcare Partners is an ambitious builder of healthcare businesses across Europe. By selectively investing in companies with well thought-out business models, Gilde creates significant value for both its investors and the entrepreneurs it backs. GHCII will continue to invest in innovative companies developing therapeutics, diagnostics, medical devices and enabling technologies. The fund will invest at all stages of a company's development from seed stage to pre-IPO rounds. Investment size will range from EUR 1 million up to EUR 15 million per investment after all private rounds of financing. It is planned to make more than 15 venture investments from GHCII.

"We believe this successful fund raising reflects our high quality portfolio, which contains many of the most successful emerging healthcare companies in Europe. Our investment approach, which is not biased towards any particular country, means that we can invest in the best healthcare opportunities being created across the whole of Europe." said Pieter van der Meer, General Partner. "The quality of our investment portfolio, which we have built and moved to liquidity within five years, has enabled us to generate attractive returns to our investors."
