Very Brief Blog: Most Active Investors in Diagnostics & Tools (Silicon Valley Bank Report)

At the SoCal Bio digital health conference this week I had the chance to talk to staff from Silicon Valley Bank, who pointed me to their mid-year investments report.   The report is available online here.   A screenshot show the most active investors in diagnostics & tools, by number of deals.

AME Cloud Ventures is led by Jerry Yang, co-founder of Yahoo.  Investments in genomics include Color Genomics, uBiome and Whole Biome.  Khosla Ventures manages investments in genomics firms like Color Genomics, Genalyte, Guardant, and Whole Biome.
