The current approach to healthcare investing is broken

We are on a mission to change that!

Traditional ways of investing do not work in healthcare. A collaborative approach that brings all stakeholders of a healthcare startup’s journey need to be at the table to make an informed and successful investment decision. HIP is shattering the status quo by bringing together financial (angel, family office, VC, PE) and strategic investors (payers, providers, delivery systems) into the analysis, due diligence, and advisory roles of our portfolio companies.

Collaborative Decision Making is our True North

Our Thesis

We invest in disruptive healthcare startups that are "collaboratively diligenced" by multidisciplinary experienced investors.

Our diligence process

Healthcare prides itself in achieving a team based care model for patients. We apply the same principles in assembling a "team" to perform a knowledge gap analysis on every healthcare startup we consider. Our large and growing investor community comes together as a SWAT team to review every attribute of the startup covering every possible angle of growth and success. We employ a "pitch" meeting model, which allows the community to bring forth startups worthy of our collective review - and at every step of the way we share our diligence findings with all constituents in the equation - the entrepreneurs and the HIPster network.

Our unique HIP Network

HIP uniquely brings together non-institutional (i.e. angels, family offices, physicians) and institutional investors (i.e. VCs, health systems, strategics) together like never seen before. With a focus on amassing exceptional healthcare minds there is no opportunity that we cannot review through our unique blend of healthcare expertise and knowledge.

Areas of Focus

HIP's focus is on innovative healthcare startups that fall in the following categories: digital health, health IT, medical devices, and life sciences. The Quadruple Aim is our bedrock but we aim to go beyond that with additional "aims" such as reduction in health disparity, new revenue generation for providers, and consumer empowerment.

Proof is in the numbers

We are just getting started, our collaborative diligence model is leading to the selection of disruptive healthcare startups worthy of multifaceted capital deployment

I am involved in several angel groups and really like HIP. HIP offers both sides: great start-up investments that have been vetted and an investor community that really understands the healthcare space.

HIP has been an incredible value add from day one. Their experience and connections in healthcare at all levels have provided opportunities for Medzoomer well beyond that of a typical investor.
