Securus Medical Group was able to gather capital commitments amounting to USD 6.5 million for its Series B financing. The round was led by new investor 3X5 Special Opportunity Fund. The privately-held company's existing investors RiverVest Venture Partners and the University of Michigan Investment in New Technology Startups, or MINTS program, also joined the round. 3X5 Special Opportunity Fund Principal Nicholas Walrod would be joining the Board of Directors at Securus Medical as part of the transaction.
