Our Approach

Our Mission - Our Approach

White Hat Health Ventures LLC was created to provide a shared services layer for life science investment funds, family offices, and foundations that enable them to maximize their impact.

White Hat provides its clients with access to life science ecosystems, optimized operational support, and the ability to connect with life science and healthcare pioneers in the development and delivery of life-saving and life-changing innovations.

By leveraging deep relationships with life science innovation ecosystems across the United States and around the world combined with long standing relationships with family offices and other  life science science investors, White Hat helps our clients move life science  innovation forward faster.

Our Story

It all began with conversations. Though a series of meetings, our team members recognized that they shared a belief in the value that is created by life science innovators around the world and a desire to increase the impact of the investment funds and foundations that support them. White Hat would be a company built on a culture based on relationships, collaboration and integrity combined with solid research and analysis.

This was the beginning of White Hat Health Ventures LLC.
