Variance Development Partners Closes First Fund

Private growth investment group to focus on small to mid-sized contract research organizations.

Jan. 11, 2013 - PRLog -- CHICAGO, Ill. (January 11, 2013) – Variance Development Partners (VDP), a private growth investment group based in Chicago, Illinois, today announced that it closed its first fund, VDP-1.  The fund will focus on making extended-term capital investments in established small to mid-sized firms that provide advisory services to developing pharmaceutical and medical device companies.   A team of seasoned executives from the contract research, investment and healthcare industries will lead VDP’s investment strategy which concentrates on contract research organizations with strong success potential.  VDP-1 will limit its investment offering to a few select companies each year to ensure that each one receives substantive hands-on attention and operational assistance.

“We’re excited by the opportunity that this new fund represents,” said Patrick Flanagan, partner with Variance Development Partners.  “The contract research market is one with tremendous potential.  Small to mid-sized companies typically possess deep scientific talent yet lack meaningful resources for managing business operations.  The goal of Variance Development Partners is to bring business management expertise to VDP portfolio companies and put them on a clear path to fast and steady growth for the future.”
