At Vator Splash Health 2015, meet the investors who are putting money to work

At Vator Splash Health 2015, we brought together a panel of active investors shaping the digital health tech scene through the investments they make. Moderating the panel was Christina Farr, reporter at Reuters. On the panel were Rebecca Lynn, General Partner at Canvas Venture Fund; Nina Kjellson, Senior VP for Investments at InterWest Partners; Stephen Kraus, Partner at Bessemer Ventures.

Thank you KPMGRackspaceScrubbedStratpointCalifornia Healthcare Foundation and Bread & Butter for sponsoring!

Not everyone is cut out for startups. There are easier ways to make a living. Yet you insist. Dismiss the odds. Defer the niceties that others take for granted.

At Canvas, we celebrate entrepreneurs. We have founded startups, worked at startups, and honor startups. We know it’s not just a job. It’s your life’s work.

InterWest’s primary focus is providing venture capital to early-stage Healthcare and Information Technology companies. Our Healthcare team invests capital in a wide array of early-stage companies including preclinical- and clinical-stage firms with great potential, as well as companies with commercial-stage assets. The InterWest IT team typically favors funding development-stage companies, but also provides capital to early-stage companies with near-term ROI potential.

Although we generally invest in the early stages of a company's development, we evaluate companies on their individual merits rather than their investment stage. We invest an average of $10 to 15 million over the span of our involvement with each company in our portfolio. - See more at: http://www.interwest.com/about/interwest/how-interwest-works#sthash.c0ITX2RY.dpuf
