    The Column Group is a venture capital firm dedicated to creating the next generation of biotechnology companies. The firm will invest in approximately 10-12 disease-focused drug discovery companies (per fund), each with the potential to become a leader in their respective field(s). Typically, Column will commit $15M to $30M per company, fostering their growth from seed and early stage to later stages of development. The Column Group will primarily focus on early stage drug discovery companies, an area currently underserved by many biotech venture capital funds.
