Venture Capital and Private Equity

Driving growth in a crowded market

The U.S. healthcare market has been experiencing a robust cadence of M&A and startup activity. With rapid changes in how healthcare is delivered and in the ways providers and payers are evaluated and supported, there’s never been a more dynamic time to invest in new healthcare business models and approaches.  These sweeping changes are, in part, fueled by record levels of venture and private equity capital—nearly $1.107 trillion in commitments were available for drawdown by fund managers as recently as the end of June 2017.

At SGP, our successes in helping healthcare investors is grounded in our deep understanding of the challenges investors, innovators, providers, and businesses face. Armed with experience working with health IT vendors, providers, payers and life sciences companies, our multi-disciplinary team delivers healthcare-specific expertise to help investors and their portfolio companies succeed through a variety of pre- and post-transaction support services.


Proven Success

“Sage delivered a comprehensive study ahead of time that was instrumental in assuring us that this deal had merit and that we were ready to move to the next round.”

Mario Moreno, Principal, Martis Capital

“[SGP’s] great range of expertise across numerous healthcare verticals and their deep breadth of seasoned executives from leading healthcare companies played an exceptional role critical towards helping us during the pre-investment phase of our work. [They are] experts in their respective fields that could dive into the ‘weeds’ of the company to understand any potential shortcoming and key differentiators.”

Dr. Evan Melrose, Founding Managing Director, Spindletop Capital

“One of our portfolio companies was looking to expand their target market. Sage demonstrated an operational understanding of the healthcare market space we were attempting to penetrate. They were knowledgeable, but collaborative. They listened first, then began developing a plan of action that was in concert with our goals and objectives. At each step in the process, they demonstrated an ability to translate strategy into tactical execution.”

Bob Crutchfield, Partner, Harbert Growth Partners
