Stealthy Vicarious Surgical raised $800,000 in a new round of equity financing, according to an SEC filing posted yesterday.
The funds bring the total raised for the company up to $3.2 million, topping off a $2.4 million round it reported in February of this year.
All of the money in the round came from 1 anonymous source, according to the SEC filing, and the company has not yet stated how it plans to spend funds raised in the round.
Details about Vicarious are scarce. The company’s 1-page website consists of a logo and email address; according to Bloomberg, the company develops virtual-reality software for minimally invasive surgery procedures.
According to Frontier Tech Ventures, Vicarious Surgical is developing a platform which integrates virtual reality with surgical robotics.
“As the next frontier for minimally invasive surgery, Vicarious Surgical is creating a technology that is far more capable than existing solutions at significantly lower cost,” according to the site.
Vicarious Surgical’s co-founders are listed on LinkedIn as CEO Adam Sachs (who is also identified as president in the regulatory filing) and Sammy Khalifa (identified as chief technology officer by Bloomberg).
Frontier Tech Ventures’ site comments that Sachs and Khalifa “were roommates at MIT and previously worked together at Apple on iPhone design and manufacturing.”
