Helsinki-based Linio Biotech secures €4.2 million in funding which brings the company’s total funding to over €9 million. New Finnish private investors and medical professionals with experience in the industry will join the existing family offices and private investors as Linio Biotech’s investors.
The research-focused Linio Biotech received a nearly one million euro grant by Business Finland in the spring of 2023 to further develop its product.
Laura Vartiainen from Takoa Growth Oy said, “Linio is aiming for the global 40-billion-euro aesthetics and scar healing market (CAGR 12% 2021-2026). Within this market segment regenerative aesthetics is the fastest growing (22% CAGR) niche, which was also involved in Linio’s first funding round. Vartiainen is the investors’ representative on Linio Biotech’s board”.
Tience®, an injectable tissue product (derived from the terms tissue science), is Linio Biotech’s creation. The product, which is intended solely to be utilised by professionals, speeds up the skin’s natural healing process, aiding in skin regeneration.
Linio Biotech’s CEO and partner Karita Reijonsaari said, “We have received very promising results with Tience®. With the new funding we can develop our innovation further and continue commercialization towards international markets. The first phase of the investment round was closed now in order for the company to maintain its ambitious roadmap regardless of the challenging situation in the investment climate,”.
