SciAps, Inc., Woburn, MA Completes Next Round of Financing

SciAps, a Woburn, MA based portable analytical instrumentation company, has completed an additional $2.3M round of financing.  The financing consists of a $1M Senior Debt instrument from Enhanced Capital Wyoming Fund and an additional $1.3M of equity capital for the same equity class that closed in February, 2013.  The lead investors in this equity round are Rand Capital (Buffalo, NY) and Coastal Ventures (Portland, ME) with some additional “tag along” investment by company founders.

The equity capital will fund the continued development of several promising  new portable analytical technologies.  “Rand Capital, Buffalo NY (NASDAQ;RAND) and Coastal Ventures, Portland ME, are excited to partner with a proven team that has the ability to execute on a business plan”, stated Coastal’s Nat Henshaw.  Daniel Penberthy of Rand added, “SciAps’ disruptive technologies in the portable  analytical instruments  field provides an interesting opportunity to excel in an industry space in which the  management team has long standing experience and reputation for delivering novel solutions”
