Venture Capital


The Venture Capital team makes syndicate investments to pool resources, mitigate risk, and enable stronger results—for shareholders and our associates.

One example is our recent partnership with the Texas Medical Center, a world leader in collaborative medicine and research. By combining our resources and venture investing knowledge with TMC’s entrepreneurial perspective, we are building a dynamic new model for success—and positive patient outcomes.
