Investing is a vehicle to create wealth.

But it’s also a way to give back. Breakthroughs in life sciences eliminate suffering around the world. But how do you separate a good idea from a bad one? Where do you find a like-minded network partner with the experience to navigate such a complex environment?

At the PLSG, we have the domain experience to help you sort through issues like:

  • Where are the trends headed in personalized medicine?
  • What is the competitive landscape in pain management?
  • How do I know if it’s time to invest in medical devices?

Our Executives-in-Residence work with our companies to plot a plan to win. As future CEO’s, their hands-on relationship with a management team and comprehensive due diligence process determine when a company is ready for investment. We do this because it’s the best way to help companies win and generate returns for you.

Region of Opportunity

Western Pennsylvania (Western Pennsylvania) is a region rich with opportunity. With premier educational & research institutions like Carnegie Mellon University, University of Pittsburgh, and Duquesne University and the support of world-class healthcare systems like University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), Allegheny General and Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, we have an environment rich in life sciences innovation.

Close to a billion dollars in federal research dollars comes into Western Pennsylvania annually.
