New York, NY (PRWEB) July 15, 2014
The Ivy Family Office Network hosted its May 2014 Family Office Outlook Forum in New York, NY on May 7th. Mir Imran, Chairman & CEO of InCube Labs, led a panel discussion on “The Future of Health Care Investing”.
Mir Imran formed InCube Laboratories in 1995 to focus on his passion: creating and capitalizing biomedical breakthroughs that become the standard of care. Mir, who holds more than 350 issued patents, began his career by pioneering the world’s first Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator. Over the decades since, he has become one of the world's most successful entrepreneurs and investors in healthcare markets such as pain, neurology, obesity, urology and cardiology.
During the panel, Imran commented, “If you can dramatically improve outcomes, and demonstrate them clinically, then extraordinary financial returns will follow. Our investment team does not think of the world in terms of financial engineering or fees; instead, we believe in actively building companies that change medicine, and mitigating risk at every step. We like co-investors who believe in our mission and approach.”
Imran continued, “It's not just that we have creative ideas. We do, but that's only part of the story. The key is that we have a creative model, backed by rigorous process and domain expertise. ”
Imran also addressed InCube’s work, “At InCube, our research approach is driven by clinical need. As a result, we are generally agnostic to specific technologies, and apply the most appropriate technology for the clinical need at hand. Going forward, in many of our current research projects, the solutions we're developing blend traditional device technologies with the world of pharmaceuticals, protein chemistry and cell biology. The Wall Street Journal recently profiled Rani Therapeutics, which can make biologics orally available; it’s an interesting example of where we are".
Other speakers on the panel included Fred Nazem, of Nazem & Company, Ken Sorensen and Jay Fisher of Calibre Consulting Group LLC.
