Main Capital Partners

Main announces a majority investment in Lux Scientiae, Incorporated (‘LuxSci’), a leading provider of healthcare-focused secure communications and secure hosting solutions.

The investment reflects Main’s commitment to the healthcare market and desire to build robust, international software groups.

Founded in 1999, LuxSci is a leading American provider of HIPAA-compliant secure communications and secure hosting solutions. LuxSci’s application and infrastructure software enables organizations to securely deliver personalized sensitive data at scale. Certified by HITRUST to support customers with HIPAA compliance requirements, LuxSci serves dozens of healthcare enterprises and hundreds of middle-market organizations. Customers include providers, healthcare IT firms, medical device manufacturers, and companies active in other highly regulated industries. Notable customers include 1-800 Contacts, athenahealth, Beth Israel Lahey Health, and Delta Dental.

With the strategic support of Main, LuxSci will strengthen its market position and its capabilities to meet the complex needs of modern healthcare organizations. In addition to fostering organic growth in the North American market, LuxSci and Main will explore opportunities for strategic acquisitions to expand the product portfolio and accelerate internationalization.

Erik Kangas (PhD), Founder & CEO of LuxSci, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, stating: “Having led LuxSci through 23 profitable bootstrapped years, I am extremely excited to partner with Main. Their resources and expertise will enable us to expand our technology and deepen our market penetration at a time when the demand for high-security communications solutions has never been greater.”

Jeanne Fama (PhD, MBA), COO & CSO of LuxSci, adds: “We are excited about the partnership’s potential to increase the awareness and adoption of LuxSci’s communication solutions and potentiate their impact in healthcare organizations seeking to improve clinical and business outcomes and increase patient satisfaction and loyalty.”

Main has demonstrated strong performance in both the healthcare and security markets, evidenced by investments such as Enovation (connected care solutions with over 350 employees across Europe) and Pointsharp (security and identity access management software with over 200 employees in Northwestern Europe). Main will leverage its experience and network in these markets to support LuxSci in its continued growth.

Daan Visscher, Co-Head of Main Capital North America, concludes: “We are thrilled to partner with the LuxSci team in spearheading the company’s next phase of growth. We are impressed by LuxSci’s double-digit recurring revenue growth, the underlying product, the management team’s capabilities, and the unwavering commitment to customers. We see ample opportunities to drive value through honing operational excellence, accelerating organic growth, and executing select strategic acquisitions. The result will be a robust, international software group positioned to meet the evolving needs of healthcare organizations.”

We are thrilled to partner with the LuxSci team in spearheading the company’s next phase of growth.
