Stealthy Vicarious Surgical reported raising nearly $13 million for the virtual reality software it’s developing for robot-assisted surgeries.
Cambridge, Mass.-based Vicarious reported the equity offering, which involved two unnamed investors and began Jan. 4, in a regulatory filing last week.
Details about Vicarious are scarce. The company’s 1-page website consists of a logo and email address; according to Khosla Ventures, the company “integrates virtual reality with surgical robotics.” Khosla’s Samir Kaul is listed as a director on the filing, as is Dror Berman of Innovation Endeavors.
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).
Vicarious raised an unspecified amount in a private placement in September 2015, according to Bloomberg, and put $2.4 million into the coffers in February 2016, according to the filing. The company did not immediately respond today to a request for comment; after the 2016 round, Sachs declined to comment, saying he wanted to reflect before responding to an enquiry from MassDevice.com.
