Archeon Closes €5.5M Series A Financing



Archeon, a Besançon, France-based CPR artificial intelligence company, closed a €5.5m Series A financing.

The round was led by Karot Capital, Majycc eSanté Invest and Daphni, supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF – European Social Fund for Franche-Comté and Massif du Jura), and by Bpifrance.

The company intends to use the funds to access to new markets including North America, to expand its range of medical ventilation devices to new pre-hospital and hospital uses and expand its current team of 17 people by creating R&D and marketing jobs.

Created in January 2018 by Alban De Luca and Pierre-Edouard Saillard, Archeon designed EOlife, a device to assist manual ventilation in cases of cardiorespiratory arrest. The system automatically measures and analyses the patient’s respiratory variables in real time, to deliver enough oxygen while avoiding hyperventilation. It is marketed directly and via a distribution network in France and around the world since the beginning of 2020.

In addition to the EOlife unit, the PulmonAIR device currently developed is destined to be the first fully automated emergency ventilator for managing respiratory distress.
