RA Capital Management

RA Capital Management is a crossover investment manager dedicated to evidence-based investing in public and private healthcare and life science companies that are developing drugs, medical devices, and diagnostics. The flexibility of its strategy allows RA Capital to lead private, IPO, and follow-on financings for its portfolio companies, both facilitating the crossover process and allowing management teams to drive value creation with fewer capital concerns from inception through commercialization.

At RA Capital’s core is its TechAtlas research division, a scientifically trained team that maps out competitive landscapes in a continual effort to put data into context, identify breakthroughs, and originate conviction in new ideas. TechAtlas provides RA Capital’s investment team and portfolio companies (see Beyond Capital) with strategic intelligence, market research, and other resources. The team’s understanding of industry best practices is derived from an extensive collection of case studies documenting the impact of clinical trial design, partnership structures, public market dynamics, and many other factors on valuation and business viability.

RA Capital offers an Executive-in-Residence (EIR) program for experienced professionals seeking thought partners and a platform from which to survey diverse competitive landscapes in search of worthy projects, though we also have other models for collaborating with experienced “drug hunters” (see Translation and Hunting).
