HIP Institutional Investors and Co-Investors

Focused and purposeful collaborative ecosystem gives us an unmatched ability to not only co-invest but also leverage our partners in diligence and decision-making.

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.
