FundRx Announces Investment in NeuroOne Inc.
Date:3/15/2017

FundRx Inc., an early stage healthcare venture capital firm, today announced that it has invested in NeuroOne Inc., a next generation, platform technology company focused on developing advanced neuromonitoring and neuromodulating products. FundRx participated in a $1.2 million seed round which will be used to accelerate NeuroOne’s lead product, a neurodiagnostic solution for the treatment of epilepsy. NeuroOne’s core technology was developed in partnership with the Mayo Clinic and the University of Wisconsin.

“NeuroOne’s technology platform will add significant value both for payors and patients specifically in the way we manage treatments for epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurological disorders. This is an example where innovation in other fields, such as semiconductors, have a direct impact on improving healthcare once the human science catches up,” said Zeshan Muhammedi, CEO at FundRx.

FundRx’s network of neurologists, neurosurgeons and diagnostic experts evaluated NeuroOne through its Peer Review Council process. This Council is an integral part of the FundRx diligence process as it helps evaluate a company’s core scientific merits directly by a large pool of clinical experts while verifying the true business market with industry members.

“Most investors are strictly capital providers. FundRx is different. Not only did they help us secure the capital we need to further develop our lead product, they introduced us to key physicians who helped validate our technology and delivered us valuable market research which we have incorporated into our business strategy and plan for NeuroOne. FundRx has been a true partner and we are honored to be working with them as we enter this next stage of growth,” said Dave Rosa, CEO of NeuroOne.

Muhammedi continued, “In just a short period of time, we have been approached by numerous experts on our platform seeking to work with the NeuroOne team. This further validates the potential of NeuroOne’s technology and its impact on the neurology industry.”
