March 6-8, the biotech team of Longitude Capital will be in South San Francisco to meet with local biotech companies and healthcare investors.

Longitude Capital specializes in making venture growth investments in biotechnology and medical technology companies that seek to improve clinical outcomes, enhance quality of life and/or reduce system costs. We invest in both privately held and publicly traded life science companies through a variety of investment approaches, including traditional venture capital, asset spin-outs, recapitalizations, PIPEs, open market purchases, royalties and other equity and equity-linked instruments. Since 2006, Longitude Capital has raised over $1.2 billion across three funds and demonstrated an ability to source, manage and exit attractive investments across multiple market cycles.

Our core venture growth strategy is rooted in building a balanced portfolio of clinical-stage and commercial-stage companies with clinically de-risked assets, favorable valuations relative to risk profile and attractive expected returns within three to five years from initial investment. Additionally, we have made successful investments in preclinical stage assets that were supported by strong mechanistic rationale and a straightforward translation to the clinical setting.

Following an initial investment, we work closely with our portfolio companies and syndicate partners to develop and implement strategic plans, achieve key operating objectives, build world class teams, raise capital and pursue liquidity opportunities in a manner that optimizes returns to key stakeholders.

Our company name was inspired by the Longitude Prize, a competition established by the British monarchy in 1714 to solve one of the greatest scientific problems of the day.

Looking forward to connecting!
