Cancer Impact Fund: The final round in the fight against cancer.
WHY WE INVEST
We estimate that the U.S. spends about $20 billion a year on cancer research, but only 0.5 percent of that goes toward getting research out of the lab and into the real world, where it can change and save lives.
The Cancer Impact Fund finds the innovators and inventors on the cusp of revolutionizing cancer prevention and care, and gives them the funding they need to bring their breakthroughs to life.
The companies we fund are out to:
- Create better outcomes for patients, so more people can live long, healthy lives.
- Increase patients access to care, so everyone can get the quality care they deserve.
- Lower the cost of caring for cancer, so people can heal and maintain their financial well being.
- Empower patients, so they can collaborate with caregivers and call the shots.
We bring together people who are passionate about the future of cancer care and want to take action today. They are investors in the cure, who take a a stake in businesses that could be game changers.
Our investors have unique opportunities to engage with CIF and the ventures we fund.
Share CIF, its mission and its unique funding model with others in the community who are passionate about the cause.
Help accelerate innovation by taking a small portion of the financial risk.
Follow innovations from research through clinical trials, product development, and launch.
Together we can make a big impact
