invendo medical clôture un financement par capitaux propres de 20 millions d'euros dirigé par Xeraya Capital

-- Ce financement considérable accélérera l'industrialisation et la commercialisation du coloscope à usage unique d'invendo

KISSING, Allemagne et GARDEN CITY, New York, 21 mars 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- invendo medical, fabricant et distributeur du système de coloscopie à usage unique assisté par ordinateur, a annoncé aujourd'hui la clôture d'un tour de financement de 20,3 millions d'euros (28 millions $) dirigé par son nouvel investisseur Xeraya Capital Sdn Bhd (« Xeraya Capital »), qui a investi par le biais d'une société affiliée. Un bureau de gestion du patrimoine allemand s'est également joint comme nouvel investisseur, et les investisseurs existants TVM Capital, Wellington Partner et 360° Capital ainsi que les fondateurs de la société y ont aussi participé. Ce nouvel investissement permettra à invendo de lancer ses efforts l'industrialisation du système invendoscopy™ homologué par la FDA.

invendoscope™ SC20 présente plusieurs caractéristiques inédites dans le domaine de la coloscopie :

  • il s'agit du seul coloscope à usage unique autorisé sur le marché
  • il utilise une technologie de mouvement délicat assistée par ordinateur (« robotique ») et n'a donc pas besoin d'être poussé ni tiré
  • les fonctions endoscopiques sont effectuées au moyen d'un dispositif portatif et
  • il réduit la pression sur les parois du côlon.

Tout comme d'autres endoscopes, l'invendoscope™ permet d'effectuer des interventions intraprocéduraux à l'aide d'un canal opérateur.

« Nous sommes très contents du nouveau financement offert par Xeraya Capital et par nos autres investisseurs. Ce soutien financier arrive à point nommé alors que nous construisons les premiers sites et implantons les premiers usages aux États-Unis. La coloscopie représente déjà un important marché, avec quelque 16 millions d'interventions pratiquées par an rien qu'aux États-Unis, bien que le taux d'observance reste insuffisant. Nous anticipons que l'invendoscope™ jouera un rôle essentiel dans l'adoption du dépistage du cancer colorectal, car il permet d'éliminer certaines des principales craintes des patients qui subissent cet examen. Équipé d'une composante robotique, ce système constitue une première et offre aux patients une alternative assistée par ordinateur qui rend l'examen moins désagréable. Dernier point, mais non le moindre, les dispositifs à usage unique ont fini par s'imposer dans beaucoup de domaines médicaux, et l'invendoscope™ est l'unique système du genre en ce moment », a déclaré Berthold Hackl, PDG d'invendo medical.

« Xeraya Capital exerce des activités de gestion des services de placement relatives au capital-risque et au capital-investissement dans le domaine des sciences de la vie. Sa stratégie consiste à investir dans des fabricants de technologies révolutionnaires, et les technologies médicales figurent parmi les principaux domaines ciblés. invendo medical répond aux exigences d'un important marché en plein essor et propose un produit exclusif susceptible d'augmenter le nombre d'interventions visant à prévenir le cancer colorectal, soit la deuxième cause de mortalité par cancer. Xeraya Capital nous aidera à franchir une nouvelle étape », a rajouté Timo Hercegfi, directeur financier chez invendo.

Les fonds récemment obtenus serviront à la mise en place d'infrastructures de services et de marketing aux États-Unis dans le but d'accroître la capacité de production du dispositif et de soutenir les projets de développement en cours portant, entre autres, sur l'optique et la convivialité de l'appareil.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
"We are a monitoring company. We work with Salesforce, BBC, and quite a few other big logos. We basically provide monitoring for them, structure for their cloud services and we fit into the DevOps world" explained David Gildeh, Co-founder and CEO of Outlyer, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Doug Vanderweide, an instructor at Linux Academy, discussed why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers wit...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The Internet giants are fully embracing AI. All the services they offer to their customers are aimed at drawing a map of the world with the data they get. The AIs from these companies are used to build disruptive approaches that cannot be used by established enterprises, which are threatened by these disruptions.

He discussed the evaluation of communication standards and IoT messaging protocols, data analytics considerations, edge-to-cloud tec...
New competitors, disruptive technologies, and growing expectations are pushing every business to both adopt and deliver new digital services. This ‘Digital Transformation’ demands rapid delivery and continuous iteration of new competitive services via multiple channels, which in turn demands new service delivery techniques – including DevOps.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
