GeneChem is a manager of focused venture capital funds. Since 1997, we have been involved in the launching of companies and in the management of their growth and liquidity events.

GeneChem has been part of investment syndicates which included a wide breadth of marquee international investors as well as smaller local players. The team has knowledge and expertise in various fields of science including biochemistry, chemistry, immunology, oncology, virology, bacteriology, analgesia, ophthalmology and human genetics.

We have invested at the very early stages of start-ups, where hands-on management is required, and also at the later stages such as mezzanine rounds and private placements in public entities. The team's experience is broad and deep-reaching within the biotech investment sector.
