“We founded Leo Cancer Care to revolutionize the Radiation Therapy space and achieving those sorts of goals only happens when you have incredible partners. Pureland Ventures has been amazing on this journey so far, so it is fantastic to have them lead this Series B financing round. It’s really exciting to see such a great balance of institutional and industry investments, it shows that the industry really shares in our vision for driving change.

This funding is going to see Leo Cancer Care continue to commercialize upright treatment technology and allow us to increase our area of focus to also include conventional photon technology”, Stephen Towe, CEO of Leo Cancer Care.

The investment raised will support Leo Cancer Care to expand their teams in the US, Europe and Singapore and support the ongoing development of their upright radiotherapy solutions, which will make both Particle and Proton Therapy more accessible than ever before. Leo Cancer Care’s gantry-less solutions utilize a fixed beam meaning they have a much smaller footprint compared to existing radiotherapy machines, making them much more affordable and easier to install and maintain. By removing the need for a gantry and introducing slow patient rotation, Leo Cancer Care has the opportunity to take Photon Therapy on the road and have plans to create a mobile solution that will take this form of treatment to more people, in more places.

We are a strong believer in the company and believe that it will change the cancer treatment pathway forever. Post-investment, we are committed to continue working with the management team to accomplish more milestones together, including bringing these solutions to the global market, which aligns with the Pureland Global Venture’s mission to deliver healthcare value and to create a long-lasting impact on the global healthcare system”, Mark Wang, Managing Partner at Pureland Global Venture.
