UAE-based multinational Crescent Enterprises has announced the successful closure of its investment in two medical tech companies through its recently launches corporate venture arm, Crescent Enterprises Venture Capital (CE-VC).

CE-VC lead the $16m Series A funding of ColubrisMX and XCath – two next-generation micro-robotic medial device companies developed at the University of Texas Medical School’s Microsurgical Robotics Laboratory, and incorporated in Texas, USA.

The funds put forward by CE-VC and its co-investors will go towards the manufacturing of prototypes, and will aid in testing and clinical studies outside the US.

ColubrisMX is developing a minimally invasive miscrosurgical robotic device that can treat life-threatening conditions such as fetal malformations and brain abnormalities through microsurgery.
