CAPABILITIES

As a professional group specializing in healthcare and investment,
MIJ not only performs all three processes of “searching”, “evaluating”,
and “supporting commercialization”, but also has high
operational capacity in each of these processes.

Global search capabilities

Our investment targets are first-in-class pharmaceuticals and medical devices. “First-in-class” technologies do not necessarily come from Japan. In fact, many of the companies leading healthcare innovation are being born in the USA, Israel, the EU and China. MIJ is concluding partnerships with local healthcare investment companies in the USA, Israel, the UK, and China with the aim of establishing a global network capable of searching for promising venture businesses from their early stages.

Evaluation capabilities of healthcare and investment professionals

In order to evaluate the technologies, organization, and strategies of promising venture businesses, specialization covering a diversity of fields and many years of experience are required. MIJ’s core in-house team members comprise experts from the healthcare, drug manufacturing, and devices fields; the drug administration field, such as PMDA; the investment field, such as investment funds and banks; and the venture business field, including business founders with IPO experience. Together with experts such as lawyers, accountants, medical association KOLs and a 150,000-strong panel of physicians with affiliated institutions, we have formed a comprehensive professional healthcare and investment team.

Ability to support commercialization, leading investment to success

A regenerative medicine venture company in which MIJ has invested was facing several strategic issues as they awaited approval for a new drug. One issue was the development of a new mechanism for appropriately and efficiently distributing freeze-stored regenerative cell drugs. Another issue was the development of a mechanism that would enable information to be provided efficiently without relying on human wave tactics to a limited number of target medical institutions. MIJ included affiliated healthcare-related companies in discussions with the venture company about these issues, leading to the establishment of a distribution research group between the venture company and medical wholesalers as well as collaboration between the venture company and medical information solutions companies regarding digital strategy aspects. We are affiliated with corporate groups that specialize in supporting business processes within the Japanese healthcare market. We connect investee companies with optimal partners in accordance with their needs, providing support to ensure that the technology in which we have invested can be commercialized according to plan.
