About the fund

The Genetico investment fund is a corporate venture initiated by Russia’s first public biotech company with a 10-year history of success – the Human Stem Cells Institute (HSCI). The fund is intended to make investments in both separate projects and sector segments in the field of modern biomedical technologies.

The aim of the fund is to benefit from the experience of HSCI’s team and the mechanisms it has developed to create and commercialize products and services as well as to apply the unique expertise which the company has accumulated.

The fund has been created not only to capitalize on HSCI’s strategic advantages but also to provide additional opportunities for participating in the creation of new markets for biomedical products, services and technologies, the sale of licensing rights and companies to major international players. Replicability and global scale are key selection criteria for the fund’s own and multilateral projects.

The funds projects are oriented toward the development of personalized and preventative medicine. The funds scope encompasses the five main focus areas of modern biomedical technologies: regenerative medicine, medical genetics, gene therapy, bio-insurance and biopharmaceuticals.
