Investor Connect Podcast

In this episode, Hall welcomes Bernard Vogel, Co-founder and Managing Partner at Endeavour Vision.

Endeavour Vision is a leading private equity firm exclusively investing in medical technology. This singular focus requires deep sector knowledge and experience, so their team is made up of industry veterans and investment professionals who are experts in the medtech sector. Their specialties include accelerating company growth and product launches with a proven track record of successful exits.

They invest in growth-stage companies with world-class technology and products. These innovations address an unmet clinical need and hold the potential to significantly improve and extend the lives of patients around the world.

Bernard leads the operational, financial, investor relations, HR, and legal aspects of the firm, and is a board member of several investments, including IntelyCare – a staffing platform for medical personnel. Prior to launching Endeavour in 2000, Bernard worked with McKinsey & Co. 

Bernard holds an MBA with distinction from INSEAD in Fontainebleau (France), and an MEng in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich, Switzerland.

Bernard tells Hall what excites him right now, and he advises both entrepreneurs and investors in the space. He discusses the impact COVID-19 has had on the sector and mentions two startups that fit  Endeavour Vision’s investment thesis.

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

In startup fundraising, there’s money and then there’s smart money.

Smart money is an investor that can help your business beyond the dollars applied.

A few questions will help identify smart money:

1. Can the investor help you in your specific industry segment?
2. Can the investor help you find additional funding?
3. Can the investor help you build your team?
4. Can the investor fill in domain knowledge?

To find smart money, first look for investors who can help you, and secondly, can they provide funding?

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.
