Every day, Global University Venturing rounds up the smaller investments from across the university innovation ecosystem in its deal net.
Stardots, a Sweden-based digital health platform spun out of Uppsala University, has received SEK10m ($1.2m) in funding led by investment firm VNV Global. Stardots is focused on the treatment of neurological diseases and is initially focusing on Parkinson’s disease. The spinout previously collected an undisclosed sum from Uppsala University Invest, the institution’s commercialisation arm then known as Uppsala University Holding, in April 2020. The spinout also disclosed Stockholm University Holding, the institution’s tech transfer unit, as a backer but did not offer details on when or how much it invested.
Batalyse, a Germany-based developer of software for test data evaluation and information management for electrochemical energy storage and fuel cells, has been officially unveiled by Fraunhofer Society’s Institute for Chemical Technology, having been spun out last month. The company was co-founded by chief executive Markus Hagen, group leader, batteries, at the institute.
