Welcome to SeedPhase. We make it easy to keep up-to-date with the world of startups, venture investors, and future-building founders.
Lifelike Control of Prosthetic Limbs
Phantom Neuro, a high accuracy robotic orthopaedic technology startup, raised $6M from Time BioVentures, LionBird Ventures, and Breakout Ventures.
The company was initially founded and incubated at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and enables lifelike control of prosthetic limbs through a system of low-risk implantable sensors, artificial intelligence, and enabling software.
Reinventing the Construction Industry
Modulous, a modular housing technology company focused on reinventing the construction industry, raised $11.5M in funding from SFV, GroundBreak Ventures, and Regal London.
Modulous has a innovative take on how to build modular homes sustainably and across the globe: they source sub-assemblies procured from established suppliers that are brought together to create modular homes in facilities close to the actual construction area.
This largely reduces costs around both building and shipping modular homes to their final destination.
