Our Partners

NeuroNetworks Fund NeuroNetworks Fund, a nonprofit 501(c) (3) melds venture capital and charitable giving under one umbrella, providing a continuous circle of investment in promising research in neuro-disorders. The Fund helps to fill the gap between government funding, which has grown scarcer in recent years and private capital that has become more risk adverse regarding drug development in the neurodisease sector. Under this model, the Fund will begin a major philanthropic fund-raising campaign and use the charitable donations to invest in entrepreneurial companies developing new drugs and diagnostics. All investment returns then will be recycled to allow to the Fund to continue its charitable mission and become self-sustaining.
