2013 was a stellar year for venture capital-backed healthcare IPOs. And if early tallies are any indication, 2014 looks to continue the hot streak of venture-backed healthcare offerings.
Already in 2014 year-to-date, twelve U.S.-based venture-backed healthcare companies have gone public. The largest of the healthcare IPOs by valuation at the time of exit was Novato, California-based biotech company Ultragenyz Pharmaceutical, which was backed by investors including Healthcap Venture Capital, Fidelity Biosciences and TPG Biotech.
U.S.-based venture capital investors that have notched two healthcare IPOs in 2014 already include New Enterprise Associates, Alta Partners, Domain Associates, Skyline Ventures and Polaris Partners. Corporate venture capital arms that have notched two 2014 healthcare IPOs include Novartis Venture Funds, SR One, Johnson & Johnson Development Corp. and Sanofi-Genzyme BioVentures.
