Meet With…Clarus Ventures

November 19, 2015 @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm

$25 – $35

Clarus Ventures is a life sciences-focused investment firm with $1.7 billion under management, with offices in Boston and San Francisco. Founded in late-2005 by an experienced team with deep development expertise, Clarus has made more than 50 investments in the life sciences space.

Clarus recently announced Clarus Lifesciences III, a $500 million fund that will be split evenly between traditional venture investments and R&D risk-sharing partnerships with midcap and large pharmaceutical companies. For its venture portfolio, Clarus is seeking passionate entrepreneurs who are advancing innovative programs that target significant unmet medical needs, with an emphasis on therapeutics. Clarus invests in therapeutics at all stages of development and is agnostic as to therapeutic indication. Clarus’ medtech focus is on commercial stage opportunities with disruptive potential.

Scott Requadt, Managing Director, will be presenting on November 19th. He will offer insights and lessons learned from case studies of two investments that he has been involved with — one in therapeutics and one in medtech. Ari Brettman, MD, Associate at Clarus Ventures, as well as Scott, will also be on hand to meet with a handful of pre-approved companies one-on-one after the presentation.
