Q&A

  • What is Foundation Venture Capital Group, LLC (FVCG)?
  • Foundation Venture Capital Group, LLC is a scientific discovery private equity venture fund.
  • What does FVCG support?
  • FVCG provides support and opportunities for researchers by using private equity investments to make early stage investments in life science companies.
  • How significant is this early funding?
  • This extra early funding means that emerging medical breakthroughs in research and technology businesses can be sustained by sufficient venture capital to optimize their chances of success and ultimately to provide revenue to the groups that support these ventures. This funding fills a void by promoting the establishment of companies that would most likely not be formed otherwise.
  • Can other venture capital firms become involved?
  • Once these companies are established with this seed funding, FVCG will seek to work with other traditional venture capital companies to partner in the effort to advance these technologies.
  • What effect can these new ventures have?
  • This forward-thinking concept can prove transformational for the mission of FVCG, for researchers who receive investments for projects that might not ordinarily receive funding any other way, for patients who can take advantage of the newest products to be developed and for investors in the fund.
