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.”
