A medical urgency is a humanitarian urgency.

As the COVID-19 pandemic ravaged the world, bioscience has become more critical than ever. Medical advancement and patient welfare prove to have implications far beyond the healthcare field. Quicker, more efficient paths to health recovery serve a vital role in our society’s prosperity and stability. 

Plaisance is committed to empowering new treatment options and technology that advance the well-being of humanity. Through financial investment and consultation on pragmatic application, we seek to propel scientific research from theory to practice. 


The collective expertise of our team and advisors ensures that our investment approach is guided by science. 


Our research-driven investment procedure allows us to identify projects where we can provide the most effective assistance and resources for scientific founders and entrepreneurs.
