Author: Gregg Bayes-Brown, editor

Vicis, a spin-out of Washington University commercialising a helmet for American football which reduces the chance of concussion, has raised $1.6m.

The round is part of a wider planned $3m fundraising for the Seattle-based company, which hopes to bring its helmet to market in 2016. With the latest round, Vicis has secured $3.5m in venture funding and grants, including support from Washington’s W Fund.
