Celtic Pharma Sees a Role for Private Equity in Biotech

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

The recently launched private equity firm Celtic Pharma aims to bridge the gap between biotech companies that have trouble financing R&D for mid- to late-stage projects and the Big Pharma firms desperate to rebuild their pipelines. The group's first fund, at around $1 billion, aims to bring together approximately 20 late-stage projects, take each through to regulatory approval, and license them out to the highest bidder.
