About Hatteras Venture Partners

Hatteras Venture Partners is a venture capital firm that builds transformational companies in the areas of biopharmaceuticals, medical devices, diagnostics, healthcare IT, and related opportunities in human medicine. We typically invest in companies built on cutting-edge science from leading academic institutions. The firm has invested in companies across the United States in most of the major hotspots for health innovation. Given our headquarters location in RTP, NC, Hatteras plays a leadership role in building companies in North Carolina and the Southeastern United States, where technology is plentiful but resident venture capital is limited.

Core to the mission of Hatteras Venture Partners is a belief that entrepreneurial innovation will create valuable new products that will transform the practice of medicine and create value for our investors. As entrepreneurs, operators, and investors, we are dedicated to the success of our companies and to the men and women who create them.

Founded in 2000 and based in Durham, NC, the firm consists of an experienced team with a broad and complementary skill set that is particularly relevant to building successful new biomedical companies. The Hatteras team brings operational experience, a successful track record, and a proven ability to enhance the value of the companies in which it invests. With five funds, the firm has approximately $450 million under management.

Hatteras is an Innovation to Impact sponsor of the Council for Entrepreneurial Development, a member of NCBIO, and an active volunteer in support of North Carolina and Southeast regional biotech activities.
