Start-ups: Where to start?

Welcome to Amethyst Life Sciences!

We're an integrated life-sciences technology company based in Ventura County, CA. Amethyst brings together capable teams of creative scientists and engineers with experienced business executives to address attractive but under-served markets. The various Amethyst divisions leverage their scientific and management capabilities along with the infrastructure and capabilities of their sibling divisions to achieve competitive advantages in their respective markets. A short description of the three current Amethyst divisions can be found under 'Portfolio.'

To help you learn more about the life-sciences commercialization process, we've provided some basic information on the development of biotherapeutics and the life-sciences investment process. We hope you'll enjoy reviewing these materials as much as we did putting them together, and we look forward to your comments and questions as we work to expand and improve on our offerings!

What Makes Us Unique?

Amethyst's roots are in the biotechnology industry, so we know what can happen when you put creative scientists, daring entrepreneurs, and experienced managers together with great ideas and smart funding. It's happened before here in Ventura County, and we want to make it happen here again. That's Amethyst's mission - enhancing and building on our life-sciences successes!
