Cancer Impact Fund: The final round in the fight against cancer.
WHY WE INVEST
Let’s save lives by accelerating cancer innovation
More than $200 billion dollars in funding from the National Cancer Institute, charitable foundations, and industry, have created a pipeline of promising research for cancer preventions, therapies, cures, and enabling technology. Our mission is to commercialize this research so that it can start helping people.
WHAT WE INVEST IN
From promising research through innovative ventures
The Cancer Impact Fund invests in ventures with the potential to improve outcomes, increase access, and reduce the cost of care through an array of technologies, applications, and modalities, including:
Modalities of particular interest include: immunotherapies, gene editing, biomarker detection and monitoring, bioelectronic diagnostics and therapeutics, bioinformatics monitoring, diagnostics, and enabled therapeutics.
WHEN WE INVEST
Stages of Development & Commercialization Strategies
The Cancer Impact Fund deploys pre-seed start capital to support innovation stage concepts and ventures, seed capital to support incubation based stage ventures, and series A capital to support acceleration stage ventures.
Together, we can make a BIG impact. Here’s how…
DO GOOD + DO WELL
Beyond charitable giving, investing to impact cancer
For those of us committed to curing cancer, the Cancer Impact Fund simplifies the complexities of investing in early stage ventures with the potential to impact cancer. CIF is similar to a venture capital fund, but unique in a few critical ways, including:
Impact Investment Strategy – Our impact investment strategy provides us with access to promising research and early stage ventures aligned with our mission and investment objectives.
Execution Management – The Cancer Impact Fund is a partner with the ability to lead early stage funding, provide experienced management, and build relationships that create value for our portfolio companies.
Value Creation Model – Unlike like venture capital models taking a passive minority position, CIF generally acquires a controlling interest and actively manages strategy and execution.
