Join the most active seed-stage healthcare fund
We're investing in companies that are making something better in healthcare
Already have a profile?
We are 58 companies strong & growing each year by 15-20.
Who We Are Looking For
We are interested in Healthcare IT, Consumer Health Products/Services, Tech-Enabled Services, and Diagnostic Devices. We do not fund Biotech, Pharma, or Life Sciences.
We work best with strong product-focused teams, who are driven to solve healthcare with goals of making a difference AND making a big pile of cash along the way.
If your company is partially funded, running its first pilot program, been through an accelerator or has its first MVP in the market, let’s talk. If you’re not only looking for money, but looking for the right money, then we’re happy you are here.
We are not an accelerator. So, if you're a first time entrepreneur trying to “figure it out” and looking to get a crash course on start-ups, we're probably not the right fit.
We’re looking for smart partners and we hope you are too.
We make standard seed-stage investments using a SAFE (simple agreement for future equity) note. We have standard terms for all the companies: $150,000 SAFE note with a $2M valuation cap that equates to 7.5% in future equity in exchange for a one time $50k membership fee.

The resources and team at JSF go above and beyond what I expected. They are fantastic to work with and have supported our growth as a company.
