Igor DaCruz
Managing Director, Life Sciences

Igor joined Runway Growth Capital in 2021 as Managing Director, Life Sciences.

Prior to Runway, Igor was a Director for Silicon Valley Bank’s Southwest Life Sciences practice in San Diego, where he led a team focused on biotech, tools and diagnostic companies.

In 2017, Igor completed a three-month rotation in SVB’s joint venture in China, where he helped develop the bank’s life science expertise in that growing market and also served as a bridge between the teams in the United States and China.
Whether his clients need to simplify their financial operations or extend their existing runway, Igor forges innovative solutions that allow them to stay focused on achieving their goals. He’s passionate about his front-row seat in the sector, where he can watch, in real time, as the most cutting-edge companies develop breakthrough therapies and revolutionize the way we treat — and sometimes cure — disease.

Igor graduated magna cum laude from the University of Massachusetts, Boston with a bachelor’s degree in management and a concentration in finance.
