Medical device startup SteadyMed closed a $2 million round of funding led by Samson Venture Partners, the investment management arm of Becker & Associates Consulting, an FDA consulting firm specializing in innovative medical devices and drugs. Prior investors in SteadyMed include the RAD Biomed Incubator, and its Chairman, Yehuda Zisapel.

SteadyMed, founded in 2005, develops sophisticated miniature disposable infusion pumps with unique drug delivery characteristics that provide enhanced portability and optimized infusion algorithms for large molecules and high-viscosity drugs. The Company is targeting interest from several major pharma companies having biological drugs requiring the specialized drug-delivery characteristics enabled by the PatchPump technology.

“The SteadyMed drug delivery platform has the potential to expand the market for currently approved drugs, and, perhaps most importantly, create markets that do not yet exist for new molecular entities, especially certain biologics,” said Karen M. Becker, CEO of Becker & Associates Consulting and Chair of the Samson Investment Committee.

Based in Tel Aviv, Israel, SteadyMed is developing innovative devices for delivering injectable therapeutic drugs for chronic conditions. The company is managed by Yossi Aldar, who was previously the Managing Director of Versamed Medical Systems and before that the CEO and co-founder of Flight Medical.

Vic: You make money for two reasons; to pay your bills and to do things you love.
We speak in strange terms: of harnessing the cosmic energy; of making winds and tides work for
us; of creating unheard synthetic materials to supplement or even replace our old standard basics;
of purifying sea water for our drink; of mining ocean floors for new fields of
wealth and food; of disease preventatives to expand
life into the hundred of years; of controlling the weather for a more equitable distribution of heat and
cold, of rain and shine; of space ships to the moon;
of the primary target in war, no longer limited to the
armed forces of an enemy, but instead to include his civil
populations; of ultimate conflict between a united human race and
the sinister forces of some other planetary galaxy; of such dreams and fantasies as to make life the
most exciting of all time. The massive move into the northwest known as the “Oregon Trail”, and the
discovery of gold actually laying on the ground in the resource-rich land of California in 1849.
