    Pfizer Strategic Investments Group is part of Pfizer's goal to fund innovation in pharmaceutical and animal health products by working with partners to identify, develop and commercialize products that will bring value to Pfizer's companies and improve the lives of patients. Pfizer has been successful in attracting and developing licensing and alliance opportunities for more than two decades. More recently, Pfizer has added a venture investments group that provides funding to existing or new companies that can advance Pfizer's commercial interests. Pfizer focuses on the following three types of opportunities: Marketed drugs and investigational compounds to fill gaps in the existing portfolio and pipeline; Innovative approaches to delivery systems, product combinations, and diagnostics, which may have the potential to better match patients with therapies; and Adjacent or complementary healthcare business outside pharmaceuticals, where Pfizer believes there are revenue generating opportunities. With a $50M annual budget for private investments, PVI may invest up to $10M per round in selected companies in any stage of development, with a strong focus on growth stage opportunities. The firm's typical investment ranges between $500,000 and $5 million. Pfizer specializes in middle and late stage investments based in or operating in the U.S.
