De-Risking Life Science Investments
Traditional biotech venture funds operate in a challenging environment, facing clinical trial failure rates approaching 94%, leading to a large number of failures and a small number of highly-profitable successes. But Longevity is a more complex area, resulting in an even higher expected failure rate. Therefore, new and double sophisticated investment strategies should be designed to face this challenge. DKLS has developed proprietary metrics to improve investment de-risking and portfolio optimization, specifically adjusted for the Longevity Industry.
