Gates, Bezos back $75M round for Synchron’s drill-free brain-computer interface implant
After announcing that it had implanted its brain-computer interface in its first U.S. paralysis patient earlier this year, Synchron has raised $75 million to take its mind-reading tech to the next level.
The company’s series C financing, led by ARCH Venture Partners, also drew investments from Bill Gates’ personal investment fund, Gates Frontier, as well as Jeff Bezos’ Bezos Expeditions.
They were joined by new backers Reliance Digital Health Limited, Greenoaks, Alumni Ventures, Moore Strategic Ventures and Project X, alongside Synchron’s returning investors in Khosla Ventures, NeuroTechnology Investors, METIS, Forepont Capital Partners, ID8 Investments, Shanda Group and the University of Melbourne.
