RA Capital Management, LLC (“RA Capital”) is a crossover fund manager dedicated to evidence-based investing in public and private healthcare and life science companies that are developing drugs, medical devices, and diagnostics. The flexibility of its strategy allows RA Capital to lead private, IPO, and follow-on financings for its portfolio companies, both facilitating the crossover process and allowing management teams to drive value creation with minimal capital concerns from inception through commercialization.

RA Capital’s scientifically trained research team is intensely data driven in its continual effort to identify early breakthroughs and originate conviction in new ideas. The team’s understanding of industry best practices is derived from an extensive collection of case studies documenting the impact of clinical trial design, partnership structures, public market dynamics, and many other factors on valuation and business viability.

RA Capital’s approach to research and due diligence is highly collaborative, encouraging outreach and exchange of knowledge within the biotechnology community at conferences, in the classroom, and through a targeted publications program.

RA Capital also offers an Executive-in-Residence program for experienced professionals seeking thought partners and a platform from which to survey diverse competitive landscapes in search of worthy projects.

PORTFOLIO

 

RA Capital has a particular interest in funding innovation that contributes to the following healthcare themes, which converge on a higher quality and more cost-effective delivery of significant healthcare outcomes. These investment themes may change in the future.

“We all start here as scientists who know the importance of asking the right questions and then learn to assimilate more knowledge than one might think possible so that we can recognize an elegant and robust investment thesis.

SEEING OUR NEWEST TEAM MEMBERS MAKE THEIR FIRST CONFIDENT DATA-DRIVEN PREDICTION IS INCREDIBLY REWARDING."

OUTREACH

 

From class rooms to board rooms, we believe in sharing what we have learned from thousands of case studies about clinical trials, product development, and business/finance strategy with our portfolio companies and, through our outreach efforts, with the broader healthcare and life science community.

“WE ARE PRIVILEGED TO BE TAUGHT EVERYDAY BY THE GREATEST SCIENTIFIC MINDS IN THE INDUSTRY AND ACADEMIA.

Our curiosity and work drive us to restore context to data and knowledge, from which emerge remarkable insights, each one potentially inspiring investment in outstanding people and technologies. But to have the greatest positive social impact, we must share those insights in an effort to enrich discourse and spark collaboration among all stakeholders, including patients, physicians, innovators, researchers, policy makers, and the next generation searching for inspiration.”
