HealthTech Capital Announces Two New Investments in the Emerging HealthTech Market
Date:9/15/2011

LOS ALTOS HILLS, Calif., Sept. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthTech Capital, a Silicon Valley-based angel investing group that is pioneering the emerging HealthTech market, announced today that it has closed two new investment deals. PharmaSecure received more than $200,000 from HealthTech Capital members in a Series B syndicated venture round that included Gray Ghost Ventures and others, while Niveus Medical received $600,000 in a Series A syndicated financing of approximately $2 million, which also included Band of Angels, Life Science Angels, Sand Hill Angels, and other angel and venture capital groups. Today's announcement underscores the growing use of investment syndications to support early-stage companies that reduce healthcare costs through technology innovation.

"With healthcare costs continuing to spiral out of control, companies that decrease costs by leveraging new technologies are providing very attractive investment opportunities," said Anne DeGheest, a HealthTech pioneer with her firm Medstars and a cofounder and managing director of HealthTech Capital. "PharmaSecure and Niveus Medical are well positioned to be the next wave of successful HealthTech companies, and we are delighted to work closely with such great entrepreneurs."

"With the early-stage funding gap, HealthTech Capital is stepping up to syndicate, or pool, investments with other angel groups to fund early-stage companies," said Don Ross, HealthTech Capital cofounder and managing director and Sand Hill Angels board director. "In addition, HealthTech Capital accelerates its portfolio companies through their early stages by providing hands-on mentoring as well as investment dollars. With both PharmaSecure and Niveus Medical, HealthTech Capital members became involved long before the investments and will continue to provide added-value mentoring going forward."
