With Sciety, I feel confident that the relevant documents are in place and that I receive a very good decision-making basis for my investments."

Mona Wilcke, CEO of SU Holding

Why Life Science?

With challenges such as an aging population, life style and chronic illnesses, there is a major requirement for new forms of treatment and preventive measures. The industry is also characterised by an increasing degree of client awareness and cost efficiency. Today, we see new, interesting areas such as AI, precision medicines and remote healthcare growing very rapidly, creating the need of improved diagnostics, medical technology, digital platforms and new business models.

There are many prominent companies, researchers and clinics in Sweden developing today’s, and the future’s, healthcare and treatment solutions. We also see an increasing number of purchasers of new services and products –from healthcare providers and pharmacists to pharma and insurance companies, and from employers. Sciety sees a major investment potential in companies offering, new, effective solutions to healthcare providers in order that they can, in their turn, contribute to improved health for more people.
