VC + GROWTH

SimpliFed is a virtual platform focused on democratizing access to baby feeding services, recently secured $6M in its seed round. The capital will be used to scale partnerships with health plans, health system and community-based organizations, providers and parents across the country. The round was led by Morningside Ventures and The Venture Collective, with participation from NY Ventures, Elizabeth Street Ventures, Waterline Ventures and 3CC. Simplifed participated in Upstate Capital’s Women’s Health event last year.

43North winner Bounce Imaging has secured $4.2 M to prepare for commercial-scale contracts in the defense and emergency services industries. Last year, the startup signed a contract with U.S. Customs and Border Protection worth up to $15 million.

Across the country, access to capital for high-growth technology companies is slowing down. While Upstate New York may not see the brunt of the decline, there are still tangible concerns for the investment community.
