VC's Raising Funds

  • HealthQuest Capital, a Menlo Park, CA-based investor in emerging companies in healthcare innovation, closed its latest fund, at $225 millionInvestors in HealthQuest Capital II, LP, include endowments, family offices, foundations, fund-of-funds, pension funds, and global healthcare organizations. The fund will focus on commercial stage companies that are optimizing value to the healthcare system and improving the efficiency of healthcare delivery, providing capital towards growing revenues and scaling businesses.

  • Accel, raised a $2 billion fund. Though the firm did not break it out, a report from the New York Times stated that the $2 billion was actually spread across two separate funds, the first being a $1.5 million fund for later-stage “growth” investments. The other $500 million would act as a class venture capital fund, and presumably go for the early and growth-stage companies the firm typically invests in.
