As we outline in our paper in the July issue of Nature Biotechnology, LS venture investing dramatically outperformed Tech venture investing over the past decade.

Overall Life Sciences/Healthcare venture realized gross pooled mean IRR was 15.0% for the past decade.  This is in contrast to 5.5% for all of venture capital, 3.0% for IT and 4.1% for Software.Nike Kobe XI 11 Elite Low AS ASG All Star Green Glow Black 822521-305 SZ 12 PADS,.
