FOUNDATION VENTURE CAPITAL GROUP
Impact Investing in New Jersey's Growing Health-Related Technology Industry
IMPACT INVESTING IN NEW JERSEY
Foundation Venture Capital Group uses impact investing to provide pre-seed and seed funding to health-related start-up companies at affiliated organizations to help them advance toward and through commercialization. Our investments are made with the intention to generate positive, measurable social impact with any gains realized from the investments reinvested into research at our affiliated organizations. We currently have affiliation agreements with Kessler Foundation, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Princeton University, Rowan University, Rutgers University and Stevens Institute of Technology.
Once the early-stage research we support proves viable, the Foundation Venture Capital Group team assists the researchers in finding other traditional venture capital companies to partner in the effort to advance the commercialization of the discoveries. This forward-thinking concept can prove transformational for the researchers, their research institutions and, most importantly, for patients who will ultimately have access to the newest products and services being developed.
Foundation Venture Capital Group, Foundation for Health Advancement and New Jersey Health Foundation support the development of health-related research and start-up companies by providing research grants, innovation grants and venture funding to develop ideas from the research project stage to commercialization.
