The healthcare investment sector attributes most of its growth to the number of companies set up to support its causes. One of these ventures is Altium Capital, an NYC-based firm that invests on opportunities that impact growth in the industry. Jacob Gottlieb is the brains behind Altium, which operates as an investment fund. Gottlieb is on a mission of supporting ventures making fruitful health and medical advances through his company.
Altium Capital is reputable for investing in enterprises such as Oragenics, Amarin Corporation, and Oramed Pharmaceuticals. The company bought a 5.61 percent share in Oramed, which develops an oral treatment substitute for injectable diabetes medication. Oramed’s released ORMD-0801 and ORMD-0901 as its flagship orally ingestible insulin pills.

Oragenics has several patented technologies for developing antibiotics for tackling bacterial strains.
