Description

Founded in 1999, VB was the first venture capital/private equity and merchant banking firm dedicated to the musculoskeletal/orthopedics sector of the healthcare industry. Today, VB is a leading independent firm, with a mission: to create, build, operate and finance companies founded on innovations, developed by surgeons, and uniquely focused on "life changing" musculoskeletal/orthopedic technologies. VB has worldwide surgeon, industry and trade relationships and significant financial expertise in the musculoskeletal/orthopedics sector.

Program/Products/Services

Their goal is to create, build, operate and finance companies founded on innovations, developed by surgeons, and uniquely focused on "life changing" musculoskeletal/orthopedic technologies. One recent example is their formation of Small Bone Innovations (SBI) that was the result of acquiring both companies and technologies to form the world''s first company to focus purely on small bone & joint science. SBI today offers a broad, clinically proven portfolio of products and technology to treat trauma and diseases in small bones & joints.

Customers/Clients

VB accepts investments from institutional and accredited investors. Investors in the venture capital and single purpose funds taken together consist of more than 140 leading orthopedic and neurosurgeons, product distributors and musculoskeletal industry personnel. On the investment side, VB seeks to create and invest in companies and technologies, which could be first, second or third to market or a franchise leader in a unique niche, based upon the early identification of trends in the musculoskeletal/orthopedics sector.

Points of Differentiation

VB believes it derives its competitive advantage by knowing more information about the musculoskeletal industry than other investors, by understanding this information better, and b being the first to act on this information. Elements of VBs competitive advantage model: VB has worldwide surgeon, industry and trade relationships in the musculoskeletal/orthopedics sector. VB believes that it has the most comprehensive, unique and proprietary library of information on companies, markets, products and technologies in the musculoskeletal industry within the investment community. VB follows 70 public companies and over 1500 public and private companies world wide. The principals of VB have been co-founders or seed/early stage investors in several musculoskeletal companies and have invested in seven companies and have exited two of those companies. VB believes that it understands all aspects of the process of building a successful musculoskeletal/orthopedic company, from inception through the business life cycle. VB either commits its own capital to the funds it sponsors or it invests directly in the portfolio companies along with the funds. VB believes having its principals personal capital at risk is an important part of its strategy for successfully investing in musculoskeletal healthcare.

Strategy/Focus

VB seeks to utilize its influence and knowledge to effect positive changes in the musculoskeletal/orthopedic industry, to the benefit of the investors in its funds, patients and surgeons. VB's creation of MCRA reflects the companies desire to broaden its offerings research to provide the full range of services necessary to build orthopaedic and musculoskleletal companies.
