WHO’S GETTING FUNDED?
RightCare Solutions, the Horsham-based company that aims to prevent hospital readmissions, raised a $5 million Series B, according to a release. The round was led by existing investors Princeton-based Domain Associates and New York City-based Compass Partners.
RightCare Solutions brings to market a technology that was developed for a decade by a Penn nursing professor. It’s also a startup that participates in Penn’s UPstart program, which helps professors develop startups around their research. Before RightCare Solutions’ $5 million raise, Penn’s 56 UPstart companies had raised more than $10 million, so this is a big round for an UPstart company. RightCare moved from Fort Washington to Horsham this past summer because it outgrew its former office, spokeswoman Morgan Dub Karpo said. It employs 14.
Edison Ventures invested $5 million in Parsippany, N.J.-based RedVision, a property research company it has previously invested in, according to a release. The $5 million was part of an overall $10 million round.
