£733k has been invested via Seneca EIS Portfolio Service and £500K via Seneca Growth Capital VCT.
Matt Currie, Investment Director at Seneca Partners commented: “SolasCure has the key characteristics of an innovative, young business that the Seneca seeks to invest in. This is a world-class team, producing ground-breaking work in the wound care sector. They have developed a high-quality solution that can be transported, stored and administered in an efficient and effective way, something severely lacking in the treatments available at present. We believe SolasCure’s Aurase® product has the potential to become the go-to solution in this space.”
Dr. Sam Bakri, Executive Chairman and CEO of SolasCure said: “We are delighted to have completed our Series A round, which will help us to move onto the clinical trial stages of product development. We are excited to be working with such knowledgeable and specialist investors, as they join us on our mission to support healthcare professionals with wound care products that significantly improve the health and wellbeing of patients with chronic wounds.”
