MEDTECH: LUMENXT LLC, dba for Knoxville-based LBHK LLC, filed on completion of a $1.5MM equity capital raise. Principals include Boston-based Chairman and Founder Marc Beer and Knoxville-based CEO Chris Doody. Its headquarters is now Knoxville and its expects to expand its local footprint, a representative told VNC. The company's offering affords surgeons the opportunity to have a light source within a wound or cavity. Its website notes that, "minimally invasive, clinically valuable solutions designed to deliver illumination to a myriad of surgical sites without the need for a surgical outlet. Additionally, the non-tethered posture allows for illumination to be attached to any surgical device in order to complement standard operating room instruments." Attorney on the filing is Mycol Scott, whom VNC believes is with Long Ragsdale Waters, Knoxville.


RELEVANCE Ventures of Nashville and Tullahoma, led a $7MM Series A round for Easyvet, a franchise group for walk-in veterinary clinic operators. Knoxville-based Easyvet is led by CEO Tim Schoenfelder, whose earlier stints included work in and around Knoxville-based Radio Systems Corporation and its Invisible Fence outlets. An SEC filing shows Harrison Boyd as a director of Easyvet. VNC research suggests Harrison is a son of Radio Systems Founder Randy Boyd. Sector entrepreneur and investor Rivers Morrell of Knoxville is also on Easyvet's SEC filings. Morrell's LinkedIn shows he is an Easyvet franchisee, as well as part-time CEO of Cloud Retriever, a Knoxville startup that filed last summer for a small raise, and which offers enriched VOIP phone systems for veterinary practices. Easyvet release here. Cloud Retriever site here. Relevance Ventures coverage here.


► SCOTT MRAZ, Nashville-based managing partner of Iron Path Capital, is associated with a recent filing for a $50MM raise by IPC Path SPV (AI) LP. Additional Iron Path principals reside in Chicago and Charlotte areas. Also in October, Iron Path Capital invested in Chicago-based Versant Diagnostics, a venture spun-up by Iron Path and Alliance Pathology Consultants. Yesterday (Nov. 29), Principal Global Investors (Des Moines) said in a press release that through its direct lending business, Principal Alternative Credit, it had served as sole lead arranger and administrative agent on senior secured credit facilities for Versant Diagnostics, an Iron Path Capital portfolio company, in partnership with Alliance Pathology Consultants.

► VENTURE: Whistler Capital Partners LLC, based in Nashville, registered as a Delaware business in mid-2020 and is preparing to stand-up its first fund under Managing Partner Geoff Clark CFA. Apart from its much anticipated new fund, Whistler Capital Partners currently has about $1.4BN assets under management via multiple vehicles. Nashville healthtech startup Hashed Health recently announced that a Whistler Capital Partners entity participated in its latest capital raise (more on HashedHealth item, later in the column). Whistler's chairman is Eric Dobkin, who, until his retirement five years ago at age 73, had served 49 years with Goldman Sachs. Pre-pandemic, Dobkin joined investors in SF-based Searchable.ai. Managing Partner Clark previously led Starr Investment Holdings, which created a Nashville office in 2019. Starr Investment was a unit of C.V. Starr & Co. -- a unit of Starr Companies -- of which prominent 96-year-old executive Hank Greenberg is chairman and CEO. Greenberg once served as chairman and CEO of AIG Group, during some of that company's most challenging times. Nashville-based Whistler is a new entity. VNC research shows Clark also owns NY-based Whistler Capital Group LLC, which appears to have been formed at least 15 years ago and remains active. A URL (wcg.co) previously used by Whistler Capital Group now resolves to the current Whistler Capital Partners site.

FINTECH_Senior Care: Franklin-based SpendCare aims to raise $2.5MM, with $250K of convertible debt reported in, as-of Sept. 20. SEC filing here.

Incumbents investors include Santé Ventures and HOYA Corporation. Note: Solas recently announced that Solas, himself a prolific lifesciences VC, has added David Blackburn as head of business development, which we interpret as linked to both dealflow and to the capital stack of prolific investor Solas.

PREDICTIVE AI company Entac Medical Inc. in Knoxville finished raising $4MM Series B this summer, which we estimates takes its total raise since inception to north of $7MM. Entac is developing noninvasive devices for the prediction and diagnosis of gastrointestinal and other medical conditions. Its website today emphasizes use of its predictive solution to address threat of patients' postsurgical acute paralysis of the GI tract. Innova Memphis, represented by Jan Bouten and Knox-based Ken Woody, have apparently been key. SEC filings here. See our 2016 brief for the backstory, here.

(Related release here.) Two Evergreen-related business entities were registered in Tennessee within the past two months. Seemingly related entities have been registered in Delaware, some bearing reference to the Nashville, Birmingham and Huntsville markets. A recent FierceHealthcare interview with Boehler on the kidney arena is here.

MEMPHIS- and Dallas-based startup MiCARE PATH (TNacity Blue Ocean Inc.) recently filed for a planned $5MM raise, which VNC research indicates is a Series A. MiCare completed a nearly $1.3MM Seed round last spring. Its platform supports continual care (with real-time updates) via remote patient monitoring of diseases states and activity, in order to support individualized care pathways shaped by outcomes-optimized patient care and proactive patient-caregiver engagement.
