About | Profile

Anthem’s team has accumulated more than 75 years of venture capital experience. We were early venture investors in such companies as Apple Computer, Samna (Lotus’s word processor), Sequoia Software, HealthSouth, Phycor and Corporate Childcare Services. Today, we bring this experience to bear on opportunities that match the following investment profile.

Regional Footprint
Anthem invests exclusively in the Mid-Atlantic states and serves this area from offices located in three of the region’s key markets: the Baltimore–Washington corridor, the Greater Philadelphia market, and the Greater Pittsburgh market.

Industry Focus
Anthem seeks opportunities in IT and healthcare/life sciences industries. IT investments are most frequently made in enterprise software or network management software companies. Medical investments tend to fall into three categories: medical devices, biotechnology or healthcare.

Investment Stage
Anthem invests in early to expansion stage opportunities. Typically, our initial investment is made in the Series A or Series B institutional venture capital round. We have led or co-led 80% of the investments we have made, but also will participate in syndicates where appropriate.

Investment Size
Anthem seeks to invest between $2 million and $5 million in a company from the first private equity round through exit. Typically, our initial investment ranges from $1 million to $2 million.
