Venture capital has consistently outperformed public markets over 5, 15, and 25-year periods.

Because of that, more value is being created in the private markets than ever before, and the largest endowments and institutions are increasing allocations.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I access fund materials?

Please register for an investor account here.

What is the minimum commitment?

The minimum commitment varies by Fund. Click here to explore Funds.

What is Varia’s review process?

In general, we start with feedback from relevant key opinion leaders to assess the quality of an opportunity. If the clinical feedback is positive, then we review the applicant’s business. Next, we complete a legal review. Following that we make an investment decision.

Can anyone invest?

You must be an “accredited investor” to invest. In general, an “accredited investor” means you have $200k in annual income (individually) or $300k in annual income (with your spouse) for the past two years, and you reasonably expect the same for the current year, or a net worth of more than $1 million, excluding the value of your primary residence and any mortgage.

What are your fees?

For our funds, we generally charge a management fee and “carried interest” on investor profits. Varia shares these profits with its partner organizations. This means that once you have received a return of your capital, a portion of the excess profits will be paid to you, and a portion will be paid to the manager. You will also be responsible for certain expenses of the fund.

What industries do you focus on?

We principally invest in healthcare companies from Seed to pre-IPO, Fund dependent. However, we occasionally invest in exciting companies outside of these parameters that we see through our network.

What is the typical exit timeline?

Venture investments most commonly have 3-7 year horizons, although some exit earlier or later. Therefore, our funds have standard 10-year terms. We generally make distributions to investors when we realize returns on the companies we have invested in.

How do I receive updates?

Once you register, you will have your own dashboard on our platform, where we will provide you with updates, and your tax filings. 

Who do I contact if I have questions?

Please email and a member of our team will reach out to you to discuss.
