    Physic Ventures provides capital and support to entrepreneurs focused on building exceptional science-based, consumer-directed health, wellness and sustainable living companies. Physic was created by the fusion of two experienced management investment teams from Great Spirit Ventures (GSV) and Unilever Technology Ventures (UTV). The investment professionals of Physic Ventures continue to manage the portfolio companies of the GSV and UTV funds. The firm's strategy is to capitalize on major economic, social and political trends shaping the landscape of personal and planetary health, including the rapid migration toward a consumer-driven, prevention-oriented 'self-care' paradigm. Physic invests primarily in early to mid-stage ventures in North America and will be opportunistic with respect to other stages and geographies. The three types of business models that characterize the Physic strategy are: Enabling Technologies, Science-Based Branded Consumer Products, and Innovative Channels.
