“Panorama Capital has been a key partner in growing our business, opening doors for new business opportunities, and growing our team. Their experience and guidance has helped build the foundation for our success.”

Investment Philosophy
Our investment philosophy is to seek out and invest in exceptional management teams building companies that can become market leaders in their categories. Whether a business is at the start-up phase or experiencing rapid growth, Panorama seeks to invest in entrepreneurs who are clearly passionate about their company and skilled at navigating the complex challenges that lay ahead.

We invest thematically, focusing our time and effort on developing deep domain expertise in any sector where we invest. In life sciences we invest in companies developing novel therapeutics that address significant unmet medical needs, with a well defined mechanism of action and clear regulatory strategy. In technology, we focus primarily on high-growth businesses serving the rapidly expanding mobile ecosystem. We look to invest in applications, infrastructure and core technology, where we possess unique insights and domain expertise.

We typically will invest between $5 million to $20 million over the life of a company, but work closely with entrepreneurs and other investors to develop an optimal financing plan. Panorama Capital embraces a collaborative, team-oriented culture, which is an approach taken within the firm, with our entrepreneurs and with our fellow investors.

“It was great working with the Panorama team. As our largest shareholder with two seats on our board, they provided significant leadership while we were growing as a private company but also throughout our life as a public company.”

— David Guyer
CEO, Eyetech

Over the years, Panorama Capital has adopted a collaborative, team-oriented investment culture. Unlike other venture capital firms with separate teams responsible for their specific sector portfolio, we manage life sciences and technology investments as one portfolio and actively collaborate on all investment decisions.

Our History
Panorama Capital was founded in 2005 by a team of experienced venture investors who had worked together for many years managing the venture business at JPMorgan Partners. During our tenure at JPMP, we completed 25 IPO's and successfully sold more than 20 companies to strategic buyers.
