About Us

We face two major threats today: one to the health of our planet and the other to our own.

"The twin catastrophes of planetary and human health will create a 100 trillion dollar opportunity."
— Arvind Gupta, IndieBio, San Francisco, CA.

The U.N. says the global population will hit 9.7 billion by 2050, meaning more people consuming more natural resources than at any point in human history. Consumption is already doubling every 10-12 years. Add to that the challenges of a warming planet. On the human health front, some 30% of young people under age 20 are obese, 31% of deaths are from cardiovascular disease, and cancer cases are growing at a rate twice as fast as the population.



Fortunately, biology and smart IT are creating fixes for the planet as well as for the human being.

As they do so, they are poised to reinvent countless industries, giving rise to what we believe is a golden age for biology as technology.

The intersection between Biology and Smart IT is redefining many industries and aspects of our lives. This amalgam is what we call BioSoft.

OUR SPACES

We invest in entrepreneurs that have come up with new ways of solving the most important challenges of our species by relying in Biofabrication and Smart IT

Bio Fab

Biology is the most advanced manufacturing technology on the planet. Just like software—or because of it—biology will one day become part of every industry.

Ellipse

Humanity has a bio-fabricated future.

Biofab

Growing products and materials from living and non-living biomass, organic waste, living cells, molecules, extracellular matrices...

Biomolelcules will be widely used as basic industrial material, just as wood, metals, glass and platics are used today.

BioFab Trends
Smart IT

Information technologies are now being applied to biosciences as well as almost every other human activity. Improvements in big data analysis are revealing more and more information about systems and complex processes, creating incredible investment opportunities for entrepreneurs who can now harness data-driven technologies such as Artificial Intelligence or the Internet of Things.

SmartIT

Digitize processes with Artificial Intelligence, Sensors, Machine Learning & IoT and make their analytics available anytime, anywhere in the Cloud.

We are going to be the first generation of humans using AI extensively.

THE INTERSECTION BETWEEN BIOFAB AND SMART IT IS THE BIOSOFT REVOLUTION

BioFab technologies will rely on Smart IT to scale and become mainstream.
The 5th industrial revolution will come from nature.

Markets

We invest in Exponential Technologies on Comparable Markets in Central Mexico and Silicon Valley, USA


Exponential Technologies are those which are rapidly accelerating and shaping major industries and all aspects of our lives. They include artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, data science, digital biology and biotech, medicine, nanotech and digital fabrication, networks and computing systems, robotics, and autonomous vehicles among others.

We believe solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges lie at the intersection of these technologies. When two or more are combined to attack a persistent challenge, the possibility of developing a sustainable solution becomes much more likely.

Guanajuato

With that in mind and after a long research and networking, we decided that the state of Guanajuato, Mexico, is the best option for Lantana BioSoft headquarters. More than 500 mulitnational companies have selected the state as their preferred destination for doing business in the last ten years.

Over the years the state has been characterized as a farming, food industry & biotechnology state, as well as an automotive manufacturing cluster. It has a very significant amount of biotech Ph. D.s and graduates, research labs, universities and startups.

Silicon Valley

For many years now, the icon of entrepreneurism and great technological success is made and forged in Silicon Valley. The team at Lantana BioSoft had built over many years relationships in Silicon Valley which represent a competitive advantage over other funds and asset classes. Likewise, the management team has alliances with successful Silicon Valley funds and accelerators coinvesting with them and becoming an M&A facilitator among Startups in the same space in both markets.

We have more than 20 years of experience investing in tech companies both in Mexico and Silicon Valley which gives us the experience and understanding of how Startups work, what are the challenges they face and how to accelerate their growth.

Investment Thesis
BioSoft

We invest on a thematic basis into industries that have multi-billion potential. Our investments are structured around the pace that start-ups evolve in terms of five-to-ten year development cycles. We search for Startups in comparable markets in Mexico and USA, preferably at the intersection of BioFab and Smart IT.
