  Endeavour Vision S.A.
Geneva, Switzerland

Endeavour Vision is a venture and growth capital firm providing expertise and funding to entrepreneurs and companies with global ambitions in Medtech and Digital Health

Endeavour Vision invests in exceptional medtech companies – those with big ideas that’ll disrupt the status quo to deliver big outcomes. Although we started building our medtech team in 2008, we decided to focus exclusively on medtech in 2013. We knew its long-term potential and the lack of existing funds dedicated to medtech entrepreneurs meant the sector was full of bright prospects. Our team is now made up of over 100 years of investment experience with a deep understanding of the medtech sector. Investment isn’t just about capital. It needs to create trust and add value. That’s why our success relies on teamwork and our hands-on approach. Our team is the perfect mix of investor expertise, entrepreneurial experience, and specialists in technology and life sciences. We help the innovators and entrepreneurs grow and develop into thriving businesses. The combination of these factors means Endeavour Vision is the best option for medtech companies looking for growth, and investors.
