The round was led by FCA Venture Partners. Other investors included Mucker Capital and Sovereign’s Capital. Previous investors included Interwest Partners and Marc Benioff, founder of Salesforce. “Amblyopia is a large U.S. public health crisis that doesn’t get enough press,” said Matthew King, managing partner of FCA, according to the Post. “With its innovative solution and a growing number of hospital system customers, GoCheck is primed to solve this crisis.” MobiHealthNews reports that the technology is used, at present, by over 4,500 pediatric teams in the U.S. and Europe.
