Noetic Psychedelic Fund LP Closing to New Accredited Investors December 31st, 2020 and Announcing the Launch of Noetic Fund II in February 2021

·4 min read

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / December 16, 2020 / The Noetic Funds," founded by the team at Grey House Partners GP Inc., is a pre-eminent venture fund led by experienced venture capitalists, hedge fund managers and operators to help nurture and grow companies poised to disrupt the traditional global pharmaceutical supply chain. Psychedelic medicine has the potential to cure global ailments, including the opioid crisis and mental health ailments like depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

The Noetic Psychedelic Fund LP ("Noetic Fund I"), which will be followed by the Noetic Fund II in 2021, has produced initial exceptional returns for investors through the construction of an orthogonal portfolio of psychedelic assets, and complimentary technologies and software, including leading companies like Compass Pathways, Mind Medicine, Apollo Neuroscience, Cybin Corp, Eleusis Holdings, Beckley Psytech, Sana Health, Bexson Biomedical, Tactogen, Gilgamesh Pharmaceutical, Delix Theraputics and others (noeticfund.com/#portfolio). Joining the boards of many portfolio companies, the team takes a very active operational approach and assists portfolio companies in all aspects of their businesses.

Founded by veteran investors with the professional experiences (The Carlyle Group, McKinsey & Company), educational backgrounds (Harvard, Columbia, Oxford, Max Planck Institute), and networks to shepherd the nascent psychedelic sector in the right way, the team at Noetic combines passion, purpose and pedigree to support the development of innovative and sustainable products and services that utilize technological innovation and the power of bioavailable plants to help define a healthy future for people and our planet.

Sa'ad Shah of Noetic says that "psychedelics will transform the global mental health sector by shifting the focus from ongoing treatment of ailments to curing mental health diseases like treatment-resistant depression, post-traumatic stress disorder ("PTSD") and anxiety." As psychedelics begin to transform the pharmaceutical and mental health industries, the successful early movers will combine rigorous scientific research and clinical trials to build high-barriers-to-entry, including patented medicines and therapeutic protocols.

Naseem Saloojee notes that "with an estimate $6 trillion global cost of mental health disorders by 2023 and the pharmaceutical industry reducing its central nervous system and mental health investments by 70% over the past 10 years, major innovations are required, and psychedelics will be a potentially ground-breaking solution."

Michael Franks speaks to the effectiveness of psychedelic therapies: "the efficacy rates we have studied within the data rooms of hundred of companies are profound and we have great faith that the US Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") will follow the efficacy rates and safety rates as it works to support this sector into the future for the benefit of humankind, as it has done twice previously with breakthrough therapy designation for psilocybin for the treatment of major depressive disorder and treatment resistance depression."

Noetic is supported by a team of in-house research associates and venture partners from notable institutions, including Oxford, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), McGill University, Max Planck Institute, Harvard, and Yale, in such disciplines as genetics, drug discovery, biotechnology, chemistry, psychology, pharmacology, botany, biotech, FDA clinical trials and many more.
