CASE STUDY

PEPTILOGICS

 

To manage our large portfolio effectively, we lead, or co-lead, investments. It means we can drive the terms, and avoid diluting our resources across the portfolio.


A good example of this is Peptilogics; LifeX’s CEO, Dr Dietrich Stephan identified the early-stage biotechnology company as an excellent solution to the large and growing antibiotic resistant superbug pandemic.


Stephan then joined the company as Chairman of the Board and put the team and financing in place. This unlocked both Peter Thiel as an investor, as well as attracting a truly world class management team. 


Peptilogics is indicative of the thinking, commitment and support that an innovator can expect from LifeX, both in terms of drive and science-based business acumen.
