Our Fund Purpose

We make seed investments, primarily in North America, to support ventures developing innovations that have evidence based applications to people living with spinal cord injury (SCI) and other related conditions with a demonstrated commercial viability. We are focused on addressing the priorities of people living with SCI, which include a score of secondary complications. The purpose of Praxis’ Mission Related Investments is to catalyze further investment in the company through Praxis’ brand and financial support. Currently, Praxis Mission Investments plays the role of a seed follow-on investor in alumni start ups of our SCI Innovations Programs.

Secondary Complications

With no known cure, SCI is a lifelong medical condition and it is more than just sensory and mobility paralysis; it also affects every physiological system in the body. On average, a person with SCI experiences 15 secondary health complications at any given time, which range from mild daily occurrences to severe life threatening conditions, and can be leading causes of death for individuals living with SCI.
