Empactful Capital is a special opportunity venture capital firm focused on early and growth stage healthcare opportunities.
Empactful was formed in 2016 by veteran healthcare operators and investors to take advantage of the massive change in healthcare.
We’re different from other investors in that we raise and deploy targeted funds where we can quickly bring operating and relationship leverage to massively scale companies. And we employ a pre-investment working engagement model with prospective companies to identify areas of strength and development and ensure alignment.
WORKING RELATIONSHIP MODEL
We help develop high-potential businesses by combining operational diligence, EQ and hands-on support — investing our time and expertise to build a working relationship. This is the optimal due diligence. This becomes the basis for providing growth capital and allows us to leverage the shared experience and clear-sighted objectives as we move forward together. Empactful offers a best-of-breed model to entrepreneurs — combining principal growth capital, the hands-on support of buyout investors and virtual incubator capabilities. Our model fosters higher empathy for business challenges and risk mitigation, which is valuable to entrepreneurs and investors alike.
While many venture and private equity firms no longer invest in truly early-stage businesses, it’s where we find our greatest impact. We support strategy development and business plan execution and help inspire deep, operations-based confidence to mitigate key risks and help teams see around corners and develop leadership competencies.
The firm’s relationship ecosystem in healthcare and insurance (clients, partners, co-investors and industry acquirers) offers insights into our companies' strategic planning and provides unparalleled access. This network was developed over 20+ years in operating roles and investing in the healthcare segment. These deep relationships are leveraged for commercial, distribution, co-investment and exit partner development. They are a key enablers in our companies’ value creation path and long-term milestone execution.
Empactful Capital raises and deploys targeted funds where we can quickly bring operating and relationship leverage to massively scale companies. Focus funds target healthcare segments, which we believe to be poised for growth and disruption. The narrow focus allows us to go deep and build an ecosystem that benefits from synergies.
Each focused fund has a set of operating partners and advisors supported by the main Empactful team. This structure allows us to not only have domain experts as part of the fund team, but also offers targeted LPs an opportunity to invest in an area of passion or strategic importance and develop in-depth relationships with our portfolio companies. All focus funds still employ the Empactful pre-investment working engagement model to ensure alignment with entrepreneurs and support companies’ scale and growth.
