ACT has raised over €350 million sourced from leading American, European, Irish and UK institutions. We provide capital to high potential companies located within Ireland, the UK and Europe in the range of €1 million to €15 million.
Last year, ACT has invested $5.25 Million in Novate Medical Ltd, a privately-held development-stage medical device company based in Galway, Ireland. Novate has completed a €4 Million (approximately $5.25 Million) round of funding. The financing was co led by Dublin based ACT Venture Capital and life science investor Seroba BioVentures, with Enterprise Ireland also participating in the round.
Novate was formed in 2006 to develop and commercialise a novel technology aimed at the rapidly expanding market for inferior vena cava filters. These products are used as a means of preventing clots reaching the lungs and causing a pulmonary embolism (PE). PE is the third leading cause of acute cardiovascular death in the developed world. It affects over 1.2 million people in the US and Europe annually and accounts for as many as 500,000 deaths per year.
