    Salix Ventures was founded in 1997 to pursue high growth investment opportunities in health care services companies (including health care information technology). Salix Ventures manages two venture capital partnerships with more than $180 million of committed capital. Salix is a national investor focused on investing in and supporting the best management teams and companies, regardless of location. On average, the firm invests $5-7 million per company, and typically invests half of that amount in the first round of funding, with similar amounts reserved for future private financing rounds. The firm is stage-agnostic, investing in companies seeking their first round of institutional venture capital as well as more mature companies seeking later-stage rounds. Salix does not make seed-stage investments, requiring that the companies in which it invests have some operational base already in place in an industry with a demonstrated proof of concept. Although Salix is no longer evaluating new investment opportunities, the founding partners continue to actively manage remaining portfolio companies.
