DATA WILL CHANGE HEALTH CARE
We invest in innovation at the intersection of healthcare and technology.
Founded in 2016 by Dr. Boris Nikolic and Julie Sunderland, Biomatics invests in cutting-edge science that will drive the evolution of healthcare.
We are at a tipping point. The convergence of genomics and digital data is enabling the development of superior therapeutics, diagnostics, and delivery models. In the next decade, this breakthrough science will transform medicine into a value-based healthcare system, leading to lower costs and better patient outcomes. Biomatics helps create the next generation of companies that will lead this transformation.
We do not invest in the conventional. We seek out inventive solutions, partner with leading entrepreneurs, and translate creative innovation into world-class health care companies.
From Early-Stage Science to IPO
Biomatics Capital’s Dr. Boris Nikolic identified CRISPR as a very powerful game changing technology, after learning of the company through his academic and venture network.
In 2015, the partners of Biomatics played a key role in driving Editas to the next level of growth by leading a $120 million Series B round, marking the largest financial investment to a CRISPR startup. Nikolic joined the board and took an active role in guiding the company to a $94.4 million IPO, which was oversubscribed even in a difficult market.
