Q&A with Dr Doug Given of Health2047 Capital Partners

Managing Member

Principal Series:

Health2047 Capital Partners is not just another healthcare VC fund. It was born from the AMA’s strategic vision – devised several years ago – to help address some of the U.S. healthcare sectors largest problems at the system level. These challenges – typified by market distortion and dysfunction, regulatory complexity at both the state and national levels and decrepit legacy systems, etc – have been painfully highlighted by the recent pandemic.

As part of the plan, the AMA established the first entity of the Health2047 Group, an innovation arm – Health2047 Inc (2047 is the 200th anniversary of the founding of the AMA) – and based it on Sand Hill Rd. It has 20 senior individuals, an annual budget of $15 million ($3 million annually to seed investable concepts) and a passive $15 million capital pool provided by United Health Group, one of the world’s largest health sector companies. In recent years, the AMA and UHG have committed $135 million in aggregate to this venture, as well as significant human resources.

Join us for a private Family Office Insights Webinar featuring Dr Doug Given a serial entrepreneur and VC fund manager on a mission to transform American healthcare at the system level; Attacking the dysfunction in healthcare by seeking to remove the obstacles and burdens that interfere with patient care.
