Seventure Partners, one of Europe’s leaders in innovation financing, has announced the launch of its new fund: Health for Life Capital.

This €120m fund is dedicated to health (biotech, medtech, diagnostic…), connected health, nutrition, and the recent game-changing discoveries related to the microbiome and its applications in all fields. It will invest in innovative companies with high growth potential mainly in Europe but will also look to expand in in North America and Asia.

Appointed CEO in Oct. 2011, Isabelle de Cremoux led this fund raising. She has been heading the Life Science team since 2001 and is the force behind the strategic positioning of Seventure Partners in these fields. Seventure Partners is acknowledged as a world leader in financing the converging domains of medicine and foodscience. It has expertise in the microbiome and its applications which bridge the gap of food, pharmaceutical, medical technologies and diagnostics industries.

Seventure's team has built a unique portfolio of companies operating in the microbiome and nutrition sectors, including Enterome, LNC, Polaris, Nutrionix, Fluxome (sold to Evolva), and in the field of digital health, including Mauna Kea, Cardiosecure-PMS, Acarix, Impeto, Biancamed (sold to Resmed).

Isabelle de Cremoux, CEO at Seventure Partners, said of the fund: "We are proud to work with prestigious industry champions as DANONE, TEREOS and TORNIER. The close cooperation we have established with these investors will boost the financial performance of Health For Life Capital. We also have attracted financial investors like NATIXIS and UNIGRAINS.

Our industry partners, Danone and Tereos display a strong innovative, oriented strategy. They are world-leaders and pioneers in the convergence of food and health.

Alain Tornier was President and CEO of the Tornier Group which is listed on the NASDAQ stock market and is a leader in devices for joint replacement and soft tissue repair.

Unigrains, private equity investor in agro and food, is interested in technologies which will guide the future of food industry.

Health For Life Capital has already been approached by numerous pharmaceutical laboratories, diagnostics and ingredient companies as well as financial investors. Seventure Partners is thus anticipating new future closings in the coming months.
