Unique Strategy

Apjohn Ventures is one of the few venture firms in Michigan and in the Midwest with experience and focus in biotech investing within the life sciences sector. The Midwest region is rich with top tier universities, research centers, and hospitals, developing novel ideas for the next generation of medical solutions. Our team works in partnership with life sciences entrepreneurs to launch and grow successful companies. It takes more than money to build success, and we believe our unique added value comes from:

  • Our depth of pharmaceutical and biotech industry expertise
  • Our breadth of networks to bring the right resources, people, and relationships
  • Our strategic perspectives on business decisions that drive company value
  • Our operational and financing experience with life sciences companies at all stage of development
  • Our success syndicating deals with angels, regional VCs, and national VCs
  • Our M&A and IPO backgrounds to facilitate successful exits at the right times
  • Our relationship with the Apjohn Group, bringing their pharmaceutical commercialization and due diligence skills and seed stage dealflow

In this first fund, we have an exciting early track record of profitable exit opportunities with one of our existing portfolio companies. We enjoy what we do and hope to partner with entrepreneurs who share our dedication and enthusiasm in creating high value companies that have the added benefit of helping people live longer and better.
