Where Venture Meets Philanthropy


Venture Philanthropy is Social Impact Investing

After productive careers in pharmaceuticals and venture capital the Induran Partners are focused on social impact investing, through venture philanthropy. 

We have run philanthropic campaigns. And we have decades of experience investing in early stage companies developing life saving products.

We have worked with Family Offices, Qualified Investors, Angel Networks, and Multinational Corporations.


Invest in NeuroQore for Social Impact

NeuroQore will soon commence clinical studies in an attempt to validate a novel therapy for adolescents suffering from Treatment Resistant Depression who are at eminent risk of suicide. It does so with a breakthrough electromagnetic pulse sent directly to the brain. NeuroQore calls this technology First Dawn.  

For 10 years NeuroQore has worked with a team of electrical engineers to create a shaped and precisely controlled pulse for neuromodulation.  The technology is now locked down and ready for submission to the FDA as a new investigational  device. 

We are hopeful that this device will also prove useful as a treatment for Autism.
