With medtech investment in January 2010 already clocked at $180 million in five days, the month and year are off to a quick start. The financing amounts are also bigger, with over 70% of the financing rounds thus far in excess of $20 million each. The financings include:
- Intuity Medical: $64 million
- CircuLite, Inc.: $32.5 million
- CeQur SA: $30 million
- Proteus Biomedical, Inc.: $25.5 million
- ValenTx, Inc.: $22 million
This is by comparison to December 2009 investment of barely $150 million for the whole month. Admittedly, December investment is typically down due to the holidays, but the January investment thus far shows a pace well above average.
