Nexus Labs, a Macclesfield, United Kingdom-based medical education startup, completed a seed funding round of undisclosed amount.
Backers included the GM&C Life Sciences Fund, managed by Catapult Ventures, and Alderley Park Ventures, managed by BioCity.
The company intends to use the funds to launch its first product, SurgicalTeaching.com, and continue to advance its innovative digital education content.
Founded by Dr Glyn Estebanez, a Surgeon who is passionate about the use of digital technology to elevate the learning experience and learning potential of users, Nexus Labs is advancing SurgicalTeaching.com, a digital platform aimed at enhancing the learning experience of students and doctors around the world.
Surgical Teaching aims to simplify the theoretical and practical learning experience of medical students and doctors. Through combining CGI animations, real-life video footage and user performance analytics, it complements medical school curriculum and helps to prepare students for both their examinations and life as a doctor.
In addition to the investment, Chris Spencer, a Digital Health Advisor with Catapult Ventures, will be acting as an advisor to the company.
