PureTech Ventures specializes in company creation and early-stage investments in novel therapeutics, medical devices, diagnostics, and research technologies. The firm focuses on companies with the potential to meet major unmet medical needs that have yet to be addressed by emerging science. They seek to identify novel technologies (often prior to publication) and create companies that drive those discoveries to commercially- and clinically-driven milestones. Once such milestones are achieved, PureTech Ventures builds out the leadership team, creates syndicates for later-stage financing rounds and positions the technology to make the broadest impact through public financing or acquisition
