    TIO Bioventures is a boutique venture creation firm focused on funding the advancement of biotechnology companies that are guided by its principles of employing research-driven science to create first-in-class cancer medicines. Unlike a traditional venture fund, TIO Bioventures leverages its internal TIO Discovery to provide R&D and management services to its portfolio companies. To date, the majority of financing for TIO Discovery and TIO portfolio company drug discovery and development efforts has come from non-dilutive funds from philanthropic and competitive grant awards, such as those from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation, the collaborative funding partnership between The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) and the Cancer Stem Cell Consortium (CSCC), and the Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) Foundation. In 2020, the firm will close their first fund, TIO Bioventures Fund I.
