Wearables and COVID-19
Empatica received the CE mark
for detecting early symptoms of COVID-19 using wearables. According to the article, it is the first company to achieve this milestone.
The company aims to raise €25m, starting from a minimum of €15m; it will use Mamacrowd to select qualified investment targets but I could not find a clear investment guideline anywhere: will they only invest in deals published on Mamacrowd? Or diversify the portfolio with active scouting? Any pointers are welcome!
