ScreenPoint Raises $28M in Series C Funding Led by Global ScaleUp Investor Insight Partners

Investors see long-term growth and market share potential

NIJMEGEN, Netherlands, July 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Netherlands-based ScreenPoint Medical, an AI technology company that develops advanced image recognition and machine learning software to improve early detection of breast cancer, announced today that it has raised $28 million in Series C funding. New York-based global venture capital and private equity firm, Insight Partners, led the round, with continued support from existing investors including ScreenPoint Medical's founders, Siemens Healthineers and Oost NL, and participation from University Radiology Group (URG), one of the largest providers of subspecialty radiology and teleradiology services in the United States, based in New Jersey.

The funding will be used to accelerate commercial growth of the company's Transpara AI breast care software, which uses powerful machine learning technology and curated databases of screening mammograms to improve early diagnosis of breast cancer. One in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime and early detection is the best way to increase survival rates. The investment will also enable further research & development and expansion of the product portfolio. 

"We are excited about this funding and the opportunity to work with the Insight Partners team to continue scaling the company," said Nico Karssemeijer, CEO of ScreenPoint Medical. "We are also delighted with the participation of URG in this round, showing trust and confidence in the technology we bring to the market. Breast imaging practice in the US is different from the EU, and the partnership with URG brings clinical expertise, which is extremely valuable for further expansion in the US. This round puts ScreenPoint Medical in a great position to establish itself as the leading provider of AI driven solutions for breast imaging."

"We are delighted to join forces with URG to make this investment in ScreenPoint Medical, which has made remarkable advances in breast care AI, enabling radiologists to identify cancers faster and earlier," said Lonne Jaffe, Managing Director at Insight Partners.

"After conducting a review of breast care AI solutions that the FDA cleared for use in the USA, we found that Transpara has a substantial body of clinical evidence, has a commercially viable 2D and 3D US solution, and has experience with integration into different OEMs," said Roger Yang, M.D., FACR, Secretary of University Radiology. "This is the right product to implement in our complex medical imaging environment."

Oaklins served as financial advisor to ScreenPoint during this transaction.
