Over the last three years, we completed 10 remarkable exits in the portfolio for a total enterprise value of almost 3 billion euros .”
Rafaèle Tordjman, Managing Partner at Sofinnova Partners, added: “We are honored by our investors’ support, which will allow us to transform entrepreneurs’ vision into successful businesses, and help bring life saving innovations to the medical community and patients.”
