Takeda Digital Ventures

Takeda Digital Ventures (TDV) is a corporate venture capital group investing in the most promising Virtual First Care (V1C) companies that are using digital to improve outcomes and experiences throughout the patient journey. We only invest in companies that take our patient first approach and mirror Takeda’s values.

About Us

We invest globally with a concentration in North America and Europe. Our interests vary from established companies to those that have a minimal, viable product—ideally with early commercial traction. We search for technologies that efficiently drive value-based outcomes for patients by providing a convenient, seamless and delightful experience. Our Venture Studio’s mission is to help create companies in various therapeutic areas that supply these same focused patient solutions utilizing digital capabilities.

Our experienced team has taken multiple companies from seed to successful exit. We have ample investment and operational expertise backed by a world-class network of operational partners, digital health care experts and clinical trial advisors to assist in building successful companies.

Our Partnerships

As the digital health care investment arm of a global biopharmaceutical company, an investment from us is more than a funding round. Our partners gain exclusive access to the global expertise of Takeda and are invited to participate in our portfolio innovation events. Within Takeda, we act as guides to encourage closer relationships and efficient business development outreach. As experienced leaders in the virtual/digital health care space, we seek to add value to our portfolio companies by taking a hands-on approach. Our investment also includes our time - taking board seats where appropriate.
