Our Investment Focus

Sunrise works globally, spanning all therapeutic areas and modalities across the full spectrum of global health care in which Sanofi operates.

We are focused on tapping into external innovation of strategic interest to Sanofi that can make a meaningful difference to patients. In particular, we seek relationships where Sanofi capabilities and expertise will accelerate discoveries and expeditiously and successfully move target programs into the Sanofi development pipeline.

Sunrise aligns interests through equity investing, risk-sharing and strategic access. Other investment criteria include the securing of some product rights and both strong internal and external sponsorship. Our investments are not limited by size but are often gated over a three- to five-year timeline, ensuring that key questions that can make or break a novel therapeutic approach are addressed expertly and rapidly as programs advance.
