Raising a round of capital and strategic support.
BluePhage is a spin off from the Universidad de Barcelona that develops innovative products to measure water quality. Their main line of business is based on detecting water contamination by bacteriophages using their own method that seeks to revolutionise this market.
This startup is led by Dr. Anicet Blanch, who manages the laboratory from which this technology was born, and by Enric Queralt, the CEO.
BluePhage was founded in 2012 and has already passed all the technological validation tests. Currently, they are on the brink of commencing regulatory and certification processes in order to commercialise their product in the European market within 12 months.
The company has already managed to close a bridge round that allows them to advance in developing the product until raising a round of capital to finance the commercial launch of their main product line and the development of new products.
The UPF Ventures team is aiding BluePhage in the following arenas:
- Raise a round of capital: introduction to investors, follow up and negotiation
- Definition and implementation of the business plan
- Contact with suppliers and experts
- Complete the team with critical profiles that are missing
