Fountain Healthcare: New €85m fund to create jobs in life sciences sector

A new €85m life sciences venture capital fund, into which the State has invested more than €15m, has been launched.

Ireland’s largest dedicated life sciences venture capital group now has €158 million under management.

It’s the first fund announcement under the Seed and Venture Capital Scheme 2013-2018 and the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland has committed €15m.

Ireland continues to be a key investment area for life sciences companies as part of the global supply chain with significant inward investment across R&D and manufacturing across the country

He went on to say “ Further support of venture capital initiatives to invest in new technology start-ups is a very positive move on the part of the Irish Government.”

Over 90pc of the initial €85m capital raised was sourced from major domestic and international institutional investors, predominantly fund of funds, sovereign funds, pension funds, and a strategic corporate investor.
