LongeVC is a venture capital firm that focuses on early-stage biotech and longevity-focused startups, aiming to build an ecosystem of interrelated companies dedicated to advancing life-changing discoveries. JKR is an investment group that accelerates companies across the tech industry. Their in-depth experience building strong and long-lasting ecosystems will help facilitate the LongeVC mission of backing visionary biotech.
The biotech sector has rapidly scaled in the past decades, introducing breakthroughs related to topics like gene editing, synthetic DNA, biosensors and more. While biotech is an up-and-coming sector with enormous growth potential, it remains a niche and sometimes high-risk sector for traditional investment funds. As the longevity sector gains traction and reaches mainstream understanding, funding new research and discoveries will be vital to advance the industry. Partnerships like JKR and LongeVC are becoming increasingly essential for this development.
“As an investor, we are privileged to choose from the industries and sectors that we believe will have the most impact. Biotech has recently become one of the most complex and attractive sectors that, with the right support, offers hundreds of opportunities to enhance our lives. Our partnership with LongeVC will allow us to extend our portfolio to the longevity space and continue to positively impact society,” said Alexander Gusev, CEO and Co-Founder of JKR Investment Group.
Sergey Jakimov, Managing Partner of LongeVC, agreed, adding, “We are excited to have JKR join us as a limited partner. We look forward to learning from their experience and are proud to advance the biotech and longevity sectors together.”
