What is your experience in Venture Capital?

The Managing Partners have significant operating experience for decades with the VC industry. We are ""Entrepreneurs For Entrepreneurs"" and have been on both sides of the financing table. Our experience inform us that many traditional VCs, although correctly formed and managed with attorney and seasoned senior executive assistance, have experienced significant failures throughout the years, often as a result of little or no commercial business operating experience by the Principals at the early stage, mid-market and enterprise levels. The operating experience we bring is profound.

Additionally, Fortisᴺ will be closely guided by world class professional advisors and Tier 1 Pharma executives with extensive operating experience in the VC space. Finally, one of our founders sponsored, formed, operated and led the Corporate Venture Capital (CVC) business unit at Qwest Communications, arguably recognized as the #1 technology company in the world at that time. Sponsoring the CVC and securing the Qwest Board of Directors' Buy-In and its enduring support was key to Qwest's rapid acquisition and deployment of key broadband communication technologies and hosted Cloud solutions that accelerated the adoption of the broadband Internet and its many services that past 20 years.

Fortisᴺ Partners has unquestionably deep experience in VC.

What are your unfair advantages?

Investment focus: innovative tech that brings speed to science

Powerful allies: strategic partners and leaders of industry

Deal flow: access to outstanding growth opportunities

Experience: understanding of market and contract value

Team: more than the sum of our individual contributions

Value-add: unique talent pipeline & growth/leadership coaching

Why are you seeking a General Partner?

FortisN is currently seeking one Tier 1 Family Office to be the closely aligned fourth General Partner as Fortisᴺ executes the Limited Partner fund raise for the Nightingale Fund 1 (the $500mm clinical tech fund).

Furthermore, we believe that the best relationships exist when we deliver reciprocal useful value to our colleagues. We expect to determine and deliver desired benefits to our select GP; professionally, socially, and financially outside of agreed terms. As we engage and advance Fortisᴺ together, we will determine what the additional benefits are and if and how we can deliver. We are committed to rewarding our GP in a way that is specific and unique to your interests and ambitions.
