Startup Medtechsaid he raised undisclosed funding of Karnataka government venture capital fund arm, Karnataka Information Technology Venture Fund (KITVEN).
The startup said it intended to use the funds to increase its manufacturing and delivery capacities and respond more broadly to market demand for its products.
Founded in 2017 by Vivek Mishra, Bharat Tandon and S Subramanian, Fibroheal Woundcare utilizes the biomaterial property of silk and silk proteins to provide acute, chronic, surgical and traumatic wound care management. Its products include sheets, meshes, foams, powder and particles.
“Having KITVEN on board brings us a lot of value compared to their connections and networks. Karnataka is the largest producer of silk and if the application of non-textile biomaterials attracts attention, it can have an economic multiplier effect for silk producers, hospitals and create jobs, ”Vivek said in a statement.

Fibroheal has a few patents for its technology and has applied for more. This raised funds from its existing promoters, including Telama Investments and CCAMP (Center for Cellular and Molecular Platforms), during its previous cycle.
