The round was led by Mutual Capital Partners, according to Crain’s Cleveland Business, and included existing investors Excel Medical Ventures, HealthCare Ventures and the Cleveland Clinic.
The filing listed 19 un-named investors and named as "related persons" Dr. Keith Kerman, an operating partner and senior advisor at the Riverside Company; Excel Venture Management’s Steve Gullans; HealthCare Ventures managing director Gus Lawlor; Wayne Wallace, a general partner at Mutual Capital Partners; and former Wisconsin governor (and current Senate candidate) Tommy Thompson.
