    Dauphin Capital Partners was founded in 1998 to provide venture backing to promising companies in the medical industry. The firm's first fund, DCP I, representing $30mm in commitments, is fully invested with prototypical investments being $2M of a $5-10M round. Most of the companies in DCP I provide support services or technology to the medical industry. The firm's 2001 follow on fund, representing $6 million in commitments, is solely focused on medical service companies and has closed on two new investments and several smaller follow-on investments from DCP I companies. All of Dauphin Capital Partners' existing investments fall within the services/payment segments of healthcare. The firm seeks to make initial investments between $1 million and $2 million with total financing between $5 million and $10 million. James B. Hoover, Founder and Managing Member, has been a health care investor for over 35 years, with a particular specialty in medical service businesses. Additionally, he has served as a Director of more than 25 medical companies (private and public) working with management teams to help build company value.
