Alta Partners

Alta Partners is a leading venture capital firm in life sciences, funding over 145 companies in the industry since 1996. Our diverse and integrated team brings together a powerful depth of knowledge and experience, delivering tangible results for our companies and our investors.

Alta is committed to building successful businesses through deep collaborative partnerships with outstanding entrepreneurs. We invest only in those areas where we have specific domain expertise. We are long-term investors and believe that it is critical to be a value-added investor by actively working with portfolio company management teams to help build market-leading companies.

We prefer to act as lead investor in the projects that we pursue and, when appropriate, take a board seat as part of our investment. We provide critical strategic, operational and financial advice in this capacity. We also bring to bear insights and advantages from our expanded network of relationships, including assisting our portfolio companies in the recruitment of key executives and board members.
