Brad H. Vale, who previously led Johnson & Johnson’s venture arm, JJDC, and Mudit K. Jain, previously with Synergy Life Science Partners, established Strategic Healthcare Investment Partners (S.H.I.P.) in 2018 to focus on medical device and digital health innovation targeting large unmet needs.


BACKGROUND & PRIOR SUCCESSES

The S.H.I.P. team brings more than 50 years of cumulative healthcare experience in investing and operational roles. We have invested globally in more than 60 companies through multiple market cycles. We worked together on a number of healthcare investments over the last 12 years prior to forming S.H.I.P.  We bring a unique set of investing experiences from one of the largest strategic healthcare funds JJDC, which maintains a portfolio of over $1B and annually invests more than $200 million in medical devices, biotech, and consumer health, and private venture investing experiences at Synergy Life Science Partners, a top quartile performing venture capital fund.

The S.H.I.P. team has been involved in some of the premium healthcare companies bringing novel technologies to market.


REPRESENTATIVE INVESTMENTS


CLEAR FOCUS & NOVEL STRATEGY

We focus on medical technology investments in companies targeting large unmet clinical needs. We will invest in high growth areas and in companies solving major clinical problems while balancing that with focused capital efficient development plans. We take a balanced approach in building our portfolio with some early stage investments, where the prior seed stage investment has proved the feasibility of a concept, and some later stage investments, where clinical data has shown efficacy and the company is in a “scale-up for commercialization” mode.

We will also invest in opportunities generated by NuXcel, our own medical device accelerator with a presence in Silicon Valley, Minneapolis, and Ireland.

S.H.I.P. leverages its relationships and unique set of LPs to improve the speed and quality of development of new products and their commercialization globally.
