About Cleveland Clinic Ventures

Since 2000, Cleveland Clinic has launched over 80 startup companies and has achieved a market rate of return on exited companies.  Cleveland Clinic Ventures was formed in 2017 to make investments in emerging healthcare companies that deliver financial returns to the Cleveland Clinic Foundation while advancing its mission, vision and values:

“Better care for the sick, investigation into their problems and further education for those who serve.”

We will do this by supporting Cleveland Clinic physician innovators and the Cleveland Clinic innovations culture through the creation of standalone, investible companies.  We develop, finance and grow these spinout companies into successful businesses by working with entrepreneurs and co-investors as value added partners.  We leverage the portfolio investment activity and internal/external relationship to further the mission vision and values of the Clinic.  We externally source transformative health care technologies that meet the strategic imperative of the clinic and deliver superior investment returns to the Cleveland Clinic Foundation.
