Geektime Israel recently released its ranking of Israel-based investors for the first half of 2016 and we are pleased to inform you that Peregrine Ventures was ranked #1 in both the Medical Device and the Life Science categories.
Geektime’s IndexScore takes into account not only the quantity of investments made but also other KPIs such as the amount invested, leadership of rounds, follow-on investments in portfolio companies, and liquidity events (acquisitions, IPOs, etc.). The data from Geektime’s Research Department is used to arrive at weighted scores that truly reflect which funds and individuals have been the most active across various categories.
In addition to the IndexScore for the first half of 2016, Geektime also presented the IndexScore for all of 2015. This comparison shows that in the Life Science category Peregrine Ventures rose from a respectable third place in 2015, to replace Pontifax as the #1 Life Science investor in the first half of 2016.
In the Medical Device category Peregrine rose from an excellent #2 position in 2015, to replace Zohar Gilon as the #1 Medical Device investor in the first half of 2016. The other medical device investors that made it into the top five were: Johnson & Johnson Innovation, BRM Group, Pontifax and TriVentures. The report specifically cites Peregrine’s successful investments in promising medical device companies such as Eximo, NLT Spine, Restore, Magnetto and mPharma.
Our commitment to working closely with carefully selected portfolio companies to help them maximize their technology and business outcomes has set us apart in the Israeli investment landscape. It’s a good feeling to take a moment to celebrate this recognition of our performance – before getting back to the day-to-day hard work that brings in the results.
