As an investor, how can R8ER provide me with a market advantage?

Thanks to its carefully selected advisors, R8ER evaluates business ideas and presents them to its investors in an easy-to-digest format that highlights the experts' feedback including strengths, weaknesses and potential in the market.

Each company is also accompanied by a profile and direct contact information, meaning investors can connect with entrepreneurs directly. Most importantly, on joining, you specify your investment preferences across a multitude of metrics, and R8ER will only ever show you companies which match these!

How does the assessment
process work?

After submitting their documentation, all entrepreneurial candidates have their businesses reviewed by ten R8ERs; a carefully selected panel of top healthcare and investment experts chosen especially for each individual company, who thoroughly review each application in order to come up with a total score and assessment.

Once their feedback and recommendations for improvement are fed back to the entrepreneurs, companies are made available to R8ER-registered investors.

Who are the R8ERs?

R8ERs are a hand-selected group of top healthcare professionals who include partner-level investors, specialty professors, consultant clinicians and policy regulatory experts amongst others. Click here to see our R8ERs.

How do the R8ERs conduct their assessments?

By looking at each aspect of an entrepreneurs idea, the R8ERs break their assessment into smaller subcategories including business model and strategy, product, science and technology, team and advisors, and financials and customers.

Thanks to the R8ERs aggregated skills which include extensive experience across healthcare, each score represents a fair cross-section of expertise, meaning investors are given a clear picture of the entrepreneurs' current status, strategy moving forward and likelihood of success.

If I like a particular business, how do I start negotiations?

In order to save time, each business has its contact information attached, meaning you are free to contact the designated company representative at your convenience. Negotiations take place between investor and entrepreneur directly.

What are the membership options?
