The innovative start-up company Captario has raised 50 million SEK to meet an increasing interest from the global pharma industry. Captario’s software makes it possible to analyze complex decisions in drug development in ways unheard of until now.
Investment AB Spiltan is the largest institutional investor when the Sahlgrenska Science Park company Captario gears up with an additional 50 million SEK. Captario’s existing owners, led by Almi Invest, and a number of new investors, also participate in the investment round.
”We are happy to have added so many reputable, professional investors to our group of owners. We now have the ability to strengthen our presence in the US and increase our capacity for product development in Göteborg”, says Johannes Vänngård, CEO and one of Captario’s founders.
”This is one of the largest investment rounds for an unlisted life-science start-up in the western region of Sweden. It is a sign that the region’s competence in artificial intelligence can attract larger amounts of capital”, says Carl-Peter Mattsson, responsible for investor relationships and capitalization at Sahlgrenska Science Park.
