According to Jim, the idea for Forestsite Capital can be attributed to his vast experience as a healthcare entrepreneur and investment strategists. The acumen came from realizing that for the healthcare industry to realize its full potential, there`s need for a perfect synergy between science and innovation. Innovative healthcare products and solutions, however, often demand more capital and resources that financiers are not willing to provide. Forestsite was therefore formed to drive the success of the healthcare future by supplying the emerging and existing firms with information, networks and capital.
