Equity funding for Medtech business

Chepstow-based IQ Endoscopes has completed a Series A equity funding round exceeding £4m, in a deal advised on by the GS Verde Group.

The round was led by the Development Bank of Wales and Creo Medical. Matthew Sutton, Director of GS Verde Law, advised on the deal on behalf of the GS Verde Group.

The investment will allow IQ Endoscopes to achieve regulatory approval for its single use flexible gastroscope, as well as accelerating the development of its single use flexible colonoscope.

IQ Endoscope's Q Vision Technology will replicate the physical handling and ergonomic performance of re-useable endoscopic technologies, through a patented and sustainable single use platform.
