PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- 1315 Capital, LLC, an expansion and growth equity firm that invests in

commercial-stage specialty pharmaceutical, medical technology and healthcare services companies, today announced the single close of 1315 Capital II, a healthcare growth equity fund, at its hard cap over $300 million, exceeding its $250 million target.

Since closing its first fund in 2016, the 1315 Capital team has expanded, adding senior investment professionals Matthew Reber and Edward Chan to the firm. In addition, 1315 Capital Operating Partners Tim Einwechter, Rick Ferreira, Antony Koblish, John Spitznagel, Greg Stokes, and Paul Touhey will continue to work alongside the investment team and portfolio companies.

"Our Operating Team model remains a unique and powerful part of our strategy," stated Michael Koby, Founding Partner. "The teams help to identify compelling potential portfolio investments, as well as add to the success and growth of these companies."
