May 15th, the Viva Biotech & Venture team will be in San Diego to meet with local biotech companies, institutions and entrepreneurs

Viva Biotech & Venture (ViV) is the specialized investment and incubation arm of Viva Biotech Holdings. We focus on the initial creation and early development of biotech startups across all indications and drug types. It’s during these early stages, we can nurture and accelerate a startup’s seeding and growth from an idea into clinical programs.
Since our inception in 2016, we have continued to evolve and optimize our investment model as we try to ensure the success of our portfolio companies.  In addition to cash, CRO services, administrative, and operational backing, and etc., we established a dual track in-person support team through our “Venture Partners” and “Business Partners.” This support team gives the founders crucial access to advice and resources from both a scientific perspective as well as a business and compliance perspective.  Additionally, ViV can provide solid support in BD, financial advising, and more for our founders as part of our baseline services.   Beyond Viva’s in-house capabilities, we are building a drug development supplier network including organizations such as CMCs, CMOs, or clinical CROs.

As of early 2019, ViV has invested in over 30 companies out of the hundreds of proposals submitted for review and we plan to invest at a rapid pace in the years to come. Our seed or A-round funding is typically in the range of $500K - $5 Million

ViV investment focuses primarily on innovative therapeutics.  We assess investment opportunities based on four dimensions:

  1. We insist the founders have high integrity with a successful track record of building a company and/or developing a drug. 
  2. The “idea” needs to be innovative
  3. There must be a true unmet medical need.
  4. We invest in opportunities with significant market potential 5-10 years in the future.

How to Apply:

If you are working on innovative therapeutics in the areas listed above and interested in meeting with the Viva Biotech & Venture Team, please send over a one-page non-confidential executive summary or corporate deck to Oscar Rodarte at  by May 1st for consideration

*Please note that this is an opportunity to apply to meet one-on-one with the ViV team to discuss your company, pipeline and technologies. The event is not open to public; the one-on-one meetings are by invitation only.
