Martin Ventures consists of a healthcare-focused venture capital firm and a shared service advisory company. Martin Ventures is also the primary funding source for Medical Properties of America, Inc., a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT).


Charlie Martin discusses the issues around healthcare payers, their impact on care, and potential solutions. Medicine X is a catalyst for new ideas about the future of medicine and healthcare. The initiative explores how emerging technologies will advance the practice of medicine, improve health, and empower patients to be active participants in their own care.

We are driven by the belief that the healthcare system is working as designed, but is flawed in design by focusing on episodic care vs. holistic care.  We firmly believe care should consistently be delivered in the most clinically-effective, cost-effective venue of care, which could range from hospital to home.

Our venture capital firm, builds de novo and identifies companies to invest time, talent, and capital into. With a primary focus on healthcare technology and technology enabled services, Martin Ventures provides each portfolio company with leadership support, operational expertise and strategic guidance.

Our shared services company, MVantage Advisory Services, provides shared services to both portfolio and non-portfolio companies. The services include finance, accounting, human resources, marketing and executive recruiting. This service allows startups and smaller company CEOs to focus on what they do best – revenue growth, product development, and culture, taking commodity services off their plate. 

Our REIT investment, Medical Properties of America, Inc., assembles a property portfolio to generate stable and increasing rental income with a combination of medical office, outpatient treatment and diagnostic, ambulatory surgery centers, rehabilitation facilities, and other healthcare delivery facilities. These properties focus on the needs of physicians, hospitals, and other healthcare providers.
