ARCH has continued to fund biotechs, even amid the bear market. Actually, ARCH was probably the most lively enterprise agency within the first half of 2023. It participated in seven offers complete.

Right here’s Nelsen from a press launch final 12 months…

All the basic improvements in biotechnology are accelerating, with big promise for brand spanking new preventive, disease-modifying, and even healing remedies. Science doesn’t care what markets are doing, and science strikes ahead. With over 35 years of enterprise expertise, ARCH has been creating and consolidating firms for the long run.

Like Nelsen, we all know that the world of medication is on the verge of doing unbelievable issues. We’re seeing advances in cell and gene therapies to deal with beforehand incurable ailments… surgical interventions which can be extra exact and fewer invasive… and diagnostics that provide early detection and higher affected person outcomes.

My group and I’ve been carefully monitoring the well being care and biotech areas throughout my suite of newsletters. And recently, we’ve seen issues flip round for biotech firms. ARCH isn’t the one one shopping for anymore…
