McKesson Ventures helps innovators build and scale businesses that will lead to a more navigable, effective and efficient health care delivery system. We partner with companies that are driving and enabling positive change for key stakeholders on all sides of the health care economy.

What We’re Looking For

McKesson Ventures targets companies that both catalyze and benefit from the key changes taking place in the health care ecosystem.

We seek companies in emerging growth areas at the center of these changes, including:

What Sets us Apart

McKesson Ventures is focused on the long-term strategic needs of the industry and the McKesson ecosystem – not the tactical needs of specific McKesson business units. We are a valuable partner to our portfolio companies, serving as a conduit to the many strengths, relationships and industry breadth of McKesson. We understand health care and we recognize the importance of responding and acting at a pace calibrated with early stage innovators. Lastly our team’s financial incentives are aligned with entrepreneurs and our investor syndicate partners.

Commitment

We are committed to improving the many facets of patient experience and to enabling clinicians and health systems to improve and maintain their patients’ health and well-being.

Network

When you do something for more than 180 years, you get to know people and the industry. We help our portfolio companies access McKesson and its deep relationships with key stakeholders across the entire spectrum of health care, including payers, providers, pharmacies, manufacturers and health systems.

Scale

We are part of McKesson, ranked 11th on the Fortune 500, but we operate independently with a small, nimble team to help accelerate your company’s growth.

Experienced and Aspirational

INNOVATORS WANTED

If you have an innovative idea or a company that will change the future of health care.
