assignment. The following details are for your personal information and should be kept
The Company
3i Group is a world leader in private equity and
venture capital. The firm is active across all
stages of funding. From early-stage venture
capital to growth capital and buyouts, the U.K.-
headquartered firm invests $1.5bn a year globally
in industries across a variety of sectors.
3i has been in business for over 60 years. In the
last five years alone, 3i has achieved more than
500 portfolio exits and has listed 43 companies via
initial public offerings on 12 international
exchanges. The firm is traded on the London
Stock Exchange and is part of the FTSE 100 index.
3i’s purpose is to substantially increase the value
of the companies in which it invests and then to
realize this value, both for the firm and its
partners, through exit events and stock market
listings. Their track record demonstrates that they
have consistently achieved this, even in the
toughest of bear markets.
3i's international relationship network is unique.
Their team of over 300 investment professionals
spans three continents, linking them to a wealth of
corporate contacts and industry experts. This
gives 3i both a local and global view of industry
trends. The breadth of the firm’s network ensures
that they are able to bring together the best team,
with the right experience and relationships for
each investment opportunity. It also means 3i has
the scale, the agility and the talent needed to
deliver even the most challenging deals.

3i Ventures

3i Ventures is one of three dedicated funds

within 3i Group; the other two are its Buyout Fund
and Growth Fund. With 3i Group as its sole limited
partner, fundraising risks are limited, which we
believe is a tremendous benefit to its platform.
Currently there are 18 investment partners in 3i’s
US Venture group, with two based in Menlo Park,
CA and three in Boston, MA.
Healthcare Sector Focus
3i’s longstanding focus on healthcare spans across
domains from services to pharmaceuticals and
biotechnology, as well as in medical devices. The
firm has financed some of the best-known names
in healthcare, and their portfolio of prior, current,
and pending investments now is in excess of 300
companies (a list of investments is attached at the
end of this position specification). The focus of
U.S. venture capital investing is primarily in patent
protected intellectual property intensive
investments, such as those in devices,
pharmaceuticals, and biotechnology. Investments
where operational excellence is necessary will also
be considered, such as those in healthcare
services. The U.S. venture capital investing in
healthcare is done from two offices, one in Menlo
Park and the other in Boston. S/he will work
closely not only with the west coast team but also
with the 3i team worldwide to ensure consistency
of approach and best ideas/ practices sharing.

The Opportunity
3i has brought on new leadership within the last
two years, naming Philip Yea as CEO and Jo Taylor
as Managing Partner, Venture Capital. The firm
has also recently made a renewed commitment to
the U.S. market, which has led to some
organizational and personnel changes, including
the globalization of its investment approach and
its structure. It has also recently named two
people to lead its growth capital business in the
U.S., which is a new effort in this region. The firm
views the senior-level hire in healthcare, as well as
an anticipated senior hires in its technology
practice, as important steps in finalizing the
configuration of the U.S. business.
