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.
Foundation Venture Capital Group provides impactful nonmonetary support to the start-up company in addition to its initial investment. We provide assistance with various strategic, operational, and back-office management issues associated with developing and growing early-stage health related companies. Our support begins prior to the incorporation of the start-up company and extends through the life cycle of the company to the time potential funding from traditional venture capital companies may be possible.
Once the early-stage research we support proves viable, the Foundation Venture Capital Group team assists the researchers and their companies 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, services, and treatments being developed.
CONTINUUM OF FUNDING
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.
