ESG and Venture

By investing in digital health, LBO France intends to contribute to the evolution of health systems, to therapeutic innovation and also to a better access to heath care. We, indeed, made a major decision to develop an CSR driven investment strategy.

Moreover, any venture activity in itself has ESG issues that we aim at identifying before any investment and then at assessing during the holding period. Because of the size of the relevant companies, we focus on regular contacts with management teams with possible minimal reporting on key items. Among others, specific attention will be brought to the relationships between founders, to human ressources (talent attraction and retention, work load, remote working, management style, disconnection, etc.) as well as to some digital communication risks (ethical behavior, data protection, etc.).
