As tomorrow’s innovations are developed by today’s entrepreneurs, we invest in transformational scientific opportunities aligned with our core R&D interests to gain access to next-generation science and build relationships with proven and emerging scientific leaders.

We’re AbbVie’s Corporate Strategic Venture Capital Arm

We offer our partners access to AbbVie’s vast internal network of experts in all  phases of drug development, from drug discovery through successful commercialization.
Our current portfolio is comprised of more than a dozen companies based in the US and Europe. Targeting 6-8 new investments annually, at the Seed or Series A stage, we have the capability and flexibility to lead or co-lead a syndicate.  Our team of eight investing professionals is based in three locations: Boston, San Francisco and Chicago areas.
