Investment focus of the fund being setting up is “Life science” (Biotech, medical technologies and equipment).
Within this specialization the fund team developed the Concept of key markets being the base of investment process.
Concept of key markets is based on 5 principles:
1. Fund invests money in the markets where innovations implementation is crucial for competition winning.
2. Fund invests money in products development, not production setting up.
3. Within key markets Fund conducts active search of companies and products rather than relies on inflow
4. Fund goal: to provide innovators with access to all key recourses necessary for business development,
rather than just to make financing available.
5. Fund will aim at creation of integral product lines on key markets so that different companies products
would help to promote each other
We specificate four key markets (biopharmaceutical, food products, agriculture and industrial reagents) and two
important additional markets (R&D service and medical and biotechnological equipment).
Key markets are, the first, large markets (with capacity exceeding $10 billion), the second, boom markets (no less
than 10 % per year growth for the last 3 years), the third, markets keeping high growth potential for the next 10
years (at least two-fold growth), the fourth, markets with high rollers – potential strategic partners of the fund.
Marketing targets to be achieved in the result of fund innovation projects realization are:
• Biopharmaceutical market:
Creation of wide spectrum of original (innovation) drugs.

• within each target segment product groups of innovation biotechnological products are specified;
• within each product group the pipe line of portfolio products is formed.
