SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RenovoRx Inc, a privately owned medical device company based in Silicon Valley that is developing novel catheter technologies enabling direct and localized delivery of fluids to the peripheral vessels, announces the closing of a $1.15M Series B financing round.
The financing was led by Golden Seeds, one of the largest and most active angel groups in the United States, and was oversubscribed with all existing major investors participating including The Angels' Forum, Halo Fund, Sand Hill Angels, and new investors Astia Angels and Amidzad Partners.
"RenovoRx will bring a breakthrough technology to the fight, opening up new treatment options for doctors and patients," said Ted Hayes, Managing Director of Golden Seeds.
"The leading position of Golden Seeds in our highly experienced investor base validates our lean organizational model and the significant opportunity to advance patient care with our fluid delivery device and method," said Marta Gaia Zanchi, CEO of RenovoRx." This funding will support our important milestones and enable us to meet the compelling clinical need for our system in 2014."
With the closing of the Series B financing round, RenovoRx is well positioned to continue its strategy of bringing to market quickly and efficiently its innovative technology. "Current catheter technology falls short of meeting the clinical need for selective and targeted delivery of therapeutic agents to visceral organs; RenovoRx is poised to address this unmet need," said Ramtin Agah, CMO of RenovoRx.
