Jonathan Rothbergs Butterfly Network has raised $100M for medical imaging tech
Noted biosciences entrepreneur Jonathan Rothberg has a health startup incubator up in Connecticut, and one of its portfolio companies, Butterfly Network, has recently raised an $80 funding round. Which launched roughly three years ago, is developing a new kind of medical imaging device that will see the human body in "Completely new ways," the company says. The startup may develop non-invasive surgical technology as well, Rothberg told VentureBeat. That's the extent of what Rothberg was willing to say about the company's products and how they might work. The new investment money is presumably coming from or through Rothberg's 4Combinator incubator, but he wouldn't give specifics. The 4Combinator portfolio companies are developing life science research tools, medical devices and therapeutics. Rothberg says 4Combinator has already funded four of its portfolio companies, and has recruited many "Star warriors" and "Flash boys" to work in them. Rothberg says the main reason Butterfly is making its funding announcement now is that it hopes to attract more talent to 4Combinator companies.
