Sage Growth Partners Engaged by Capricorn Healthcare to Vet New Investment Opportunity

Firm’s Healthcare Investor practice delivers Early Insight to enable investment decisions

Baltimore, MD – March 9, 2016 – Sage Growth Partners (SGP), a Baltimore-based healthcare strategy, technology and marketing firm today announced that its Healthcare Investor practice was engaged by Capricorn Healthcare & Special Opportunities (CHSO) to strategically assess an investment target prior to the due diligence phase. SGP’s Early Insights model delivered a thorough assessment report for CHSO highlighting opportunity strengths and proposed recommendations, investment strengths and weaknesses, and a 12-month post-investment business plan proposition.

SGP’s Healthcare Investor practice is a service platform for venture capital and private equity firms that offers capabilities in filtering new investments, sourcing opportunities, vetting potential ventures, and accelerating decision making. The practice area builds off of SGP’s long experience with payers, providers, Fortune 500 healthcare companies, and leading venture capital and private equity healthcare firms at the forefront of industry innovation.

“We were impressed with SGP’s in-depth knowledge of the population health management space and their ability to systematically identify the addressable market opportunity and competitive considerations to help reinforce our investment thesis,” said CHSO Director, Mario Moreno. “Sage created appropriate expectations and 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.”

“It’s clear that as the healthcare services and technology space has become more cluttered, there is a need to be able to quickly sift out the strengths and weaknesses of investment targets,” said Veneeth Iyengar, Vice President of Strategic Ventures and Business Development for SGP. “Our Healthcare Investor practice compliments SGP’s other practice areas and we are very pleased that we were able to use our experience and knowledge to help CHSO accelerate this investment decision and make it with confidence.”
