Philadelphia, PA – [April 16, 2024] – In anticipation of the Innovation Funders Showcase at the Angel Capital Association's 2024 Summit, Keiretsu Forum Mid-Atlantic, South-East, and Texas is proud to announce a sponsored portfolio company that exemplifies the pinnacle of healthcare innovation. PhotoniCare has set a commendable milestone by enriching the lives of more than 20,000 patients, imaging their 20,000th patient in Q1 through its pioneering light-based technologies designed to revolutionize patient care.

Steadfast in its quarterly growth and the increased recognition from insurance companies, PhotoniCare has validated its promise to enhance healthcare delivery. The OtoSight Middle Ear Scope reflects PhotoniCare’s commitment to innovation and excellence, remaining at the forefront for healthcare providers in diagnosing and managing otitis media—a prevalent condition among children and adults globally.

PhotoniCare’s pursuit of excellence is further demonstrated by its latest achievement: the onboarding of its 7th facility in an 800-patient, outcomes-focused randomized controlled trial (RCT). This serves as a testament to the company’s allegiance to evidence-based medicine and verifiable patient outcomes.

Investment Opportunity with PhotoniCare

Having navigated Keiretsu Forum’s comprehensive Due Diligence process successfully, PhotoniCare conveys a strong message of transparency and rigor—offering prospective investors a detailed report and investment portfolio for consideration.

The Angel Capital Association's 2024 Summit, set to unfold in Columbus, Ohio, on May 13-15, 2024, promises to be a convergence of innovation and investor acumen. PhotoniCare joins a curated list of companies demonstrating the potential to reshape industries with their technologies and philosophies.
