    Charter Life Sciences (CLS) is an early stage life sciences venture capital investor. The firm invests in medical device companies and drug development companies in roughly equal proportions with a focus on therapeutic devices, diagnostic opportunities, and both biologic and small molecule opportunities. CLS will generally make an initial portfolio investment only in Series A or Series B rounds, typically in the range of $1 to $5 million, as part of an investment syndicate of other professional venture capital investors. CLS will consider investment opportunities located anywhere in the United States, although the firm has a particular focus in the West and Midwest. Companies located outside the United States will be considered as long as they are willing to establish a U.S.-based headquarters.
