LRVHealth Tapping Providers for New $100 Million Fund

February 19, 2018


Tripp Peake co-founded Long River Ventures in 2000, just before the tech and venture capital industries took a dive. The firm survived, thrived, and is very much alive raising a $100 million fund under a new brand, LRVHealth. The new name and tight healthcare focus reflects the firm’s strong connections to hospital networks and other healthcare institutions making up its limited partner base. With a broader investment team and new purpose, LRVHealth is looking to connect healthcare innovators and end-users. Overview: More money for Series A rounds. Good news! Surprises: I didn’t know the origin of the Long River name. Regrets: A question or two about LRVHealth’s existing portfolio would have been nice Enjoy this podcast!
