Kolibree, a French maker of a connected electric toothbrush, closed a Series A round of financing of undisclosed amount.
Backers included SEB Alliance, Innovacom, Cap Horn Invest and the Dental Investment Group for Health.
The company is using the funds to build relationships with dental professionals and consumers across the United States.
Led by CEO Thomas Serval, Kolibree has made a connected electric toothbrush, which uses proprietary technology to create an interactive toothbrushing experience that motivates children and adults and provides real-time feedback to improve oral care and prevent cavities and gum disease. It also offers Go Pirate (for children) and Coach (for adults), to mobile apps geared toward families.
Kolibree has offices in New York, Paris and Hong Kong.
The Kolibree smart sonic electric toothbrush with 3D motion sensors is now available through dentist members of the Dentegra Smile Club (https://www.dentegrasmileclub.com) and online from kolibree.com and Hammacher Schlemmer (hammacher.com).
