Life Science Fund I

The First Avenue Ventures Life Science Fund was formed to identify early-stage investment opportunities in the life sciences primarily throughout Birmingham and the State of Alabama. The principals of the Fund will leverage their extensive network, including strategic relationships with research institutions in Birmingham to source investment opportunities and to provide access to resources that assist a portfolio company in navigating the dynamics of venture development.

While our aim is to produce financial returns for the Fund’s Limited Partners, the Principals believe there are several objective success measures. For example, investing in healthcare – specifically the life sciences — ought to create an industry-specific mandate of improving the well-being of society. By making responsible investments in the life sciences, we hope to commit to this mission while achieving excess returns from the activity.        

The Fund’s strategic focus in Birmingham and UAB will also create a positive impact. The Principals’ passion for the ecosystem and subject matter is a catalyst for investors, entrepreneurs, and community stakeholders.

The Fund is Closed for Investors.
