Telluride Medical Partners (TMP) announced today that it has secured $2.2 million in new financing that will be invested into TMP’s portfolio of companies.
The new financing comes from two investors and closed at the end of 2017, with a large portion coming from a private individual with a family office in Houston, Texas that invests in energy, real estate and medical, among other industries. The second investment came from Regis Medical, a German company that specializes in the commercialization and distribution of high-quality and innovative medical device products.
“We are excited to have two new investors involved with TMP who both bring their own set of industry connections to help advance TMP and its portfolio of companies,” stated Eric Wells, CEO and Founder of Telluride Medical Partners. “This new funding will go towards the continued development and commercialization of each company’s disruptive medical device technology,” stated Wells.
TMP continues to attract interest from partners and investors alike and the team is focused on further exposing its companies by attending elite industry conferences and networking events.
“We received a great amount of interest from strategic partners and investors from around the world while attending meetings at the recent J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference in San Francisco,” stated Wells. “As we continue to advance each company it is imperative to stay connected with medical device experts and industry influencers to continue to drive interest and market our companies. We look forward to cultivating these new relationships in the coming weeks,” stated Wells.
TMP’s portfolio of companies is impressive to say the least.
