Mass General Brigham Ventures
Mass General Brigham Ventures is an early-stage venture capital firm founded in 2008 to advance new life science technologies emerging from Mass General Brigham’s vast research network. Our unique model combines first access and proprietary rights to disruptive deal flow with an established track record of new venture formation, company building, and value creation. We invest in bold, transformative innovations to develop new drugs and technologies to improve outcomes for the market benefit of patients worldwide.
The Artificial Intelligence and Digital Innovation Fund was established in 2020 to invest in commercial stage digital health and AI based companies that address unmet needs at Mass General Brigham and are not based on technologies emerging from the health system.
A $30M fund, we work closely with the health system’s clinical, operations, research and digital leadership to identify key areas for investment focus and with Innovation’s Business Development group to identify potential co-development opportunities. We seek to co-invest with strong syndicate partners who can help these early commercial companies scale.

Amplify (formerly TIF) was created in 2019 to address the funding gap between basic research or drug discovery and clinical proof-of-concept.
Amplify enhances the value of pre-commercial projects prior to their commercialization. Amplify-funded projects execute on a translational plan developed alongside the PI, that is operated on their behalf by Amplify staff. Our focus is on discoveries with high commercial potential from the Mass General Brigham network of hospitals.
