"Since 1889 my family has worked in healthcare, and over the last decade, we've invested heavily in pharmaceutical IP to become a global leader in the space," said Giammaria Giuliani of the GISEV Family Office (Giuliani SpA / Royalty Pharma / HBM Healthcare / Nogra Pharma). "We're always looking for companies that are breaking new ground in the healthcare industry, whether pharmaceutical or consumer. Elysium Health's approach to product development caught my attention as an investor a couple of years ago. Their strategy has innovation at its core but, beyond that, they are incredibly thoughtful about how they launch products. Such that, the standards they set internally for quality and clinical testing are establishing new standards for the industry more broadly. We are thrilled to invest in the Elysium Health team to further the work they are doing to change the way people support their lifelong health."
