Surgify develops a neurosurgical burr and raises a €1.0M seed investment round
The investors joining the startup’s second round of financing include a Finnish venture capital firm Butterfly Ventures, as well as Cascara Ventures from Belgium, Merkatura AB (Andreas Bunge) from Sweden and FRIIH GmBH (Dr. Michael Friebe) from Germany. The funding will be used to finalize the neurosurgical burr and to apply for a sales approval in Europe.
