Accelerating Innovations in Skin Health

About Us 

Gore Range Capital is focused on investments in early-stage skin health businesses.


Our approach is simple: we invest in what we know. Over the course of our respective careers the Gore Range team has built domain expertise and extensive networks across multiple areas of healthcare. Through Gore Range Capital we are channeling our capabilities to focus on our largest organ and the most visible manifestation of who we are - the skin.


At Gore Range, we blend the hands-on approach of operationally focused private equity with the early-stage guidance needed in venture capital. ​We were formed in 2015 with the goal of partnering with industry pioneers, working closely with portfolio companies to bring skin health innovations to market. To accomplish this mission, we leverage our team of experienced healthcare investors, leaders, and practitioners to bring strategic, financial, and scientific expertise to our investments.

Our Focus: Skin Health

The skin is our largest organ and skin health lies at the intersection of a wide range of diseases and health conditions including: inflammatory, autoimmune, infectious, and lifestyle diseases, microbiome dysbiosis, and mental health.


In addition to its role in key biological functions, our most visible organ greatly influences our quality of life as it is the most important determinant of human appearance and identity. 


We recognize the important role skin plays in our overall health and wellness. At Gore Range we dedicated to finding new treatments for dermatological conditions as well as new technologies and techniques to help individuals achieve their skin health goals.
