    MB Venture Partners provides private equity capital for growing life sciences companies. Founded in 2001, the firm's first fund, Memphis Biomed Ventures, attracted investment capital of $22.4 million. A second fund followed in 2005 bringing the firm's total under management to $76 million. MB invests in seed or early-stage financings, but selected later-stage financings will also be considered.
