“Our mission to create $1 billion in value and positively impact 1 billion lives is fulfilled by investing in innovative teams like the founders leading tCheck,” said Ross O’Brien, Founder and CEO.
WEST PALM BEACH, FL, December 10, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — BVE Select Fund, LLC, a Bonaventure Equity managed venture investor, is pleased to announce its investment in Engineered Medical Technologies, Inc. (“tCheck”), a biotechnology firm focused on developing and delivering efficient, cost-effective and efficacious testing technology to all.
Established in 2015 by a team of designers, engineers, and scientists, tCheck simplifies spectroscopy and provides commercial grade testing devices to businesses, growers and individual consumers. The tCheck Classic, tCheck 2, and accessory products, solve a problem common to those selling or consuming cannabis containing products, that being the ability to confirm the amount of cannabinoid in a product. Using just two drops of an infused oil, tCheck’s handheld device delivers results in just a few minutes. To date, tCheck has sold more than 8,000 testing devices.
“It is our primary mission to empower individuals to make sound decisions about their health. We believe, as does most of the scientific community and general population, that cannabis is medicine and has the potential to help millions of people,” said Co-founder and CEO Peichen Chang. He continued, “Through the use of our devices, consumers and those selling to consumers, are able to quickly and cost-effectively confirm consumption amounts and make confident, better informed decisions.”
Bonaventure Equity (“BVE”), founded in 2014 by Ross O’Brien, is a boutique venture capital platform that provides capital, resources and unparalleled access to strategic and regulatory relationships. With decades of investing in, building, growing and exiting private companies, BVE provides leading entrepreneurs with the capital and resources they require to build the great businesses of tomorrow.
“We are very excited to add tCheck to the BVE Select portfolio. It is our firm’s mission to create $1 billion in value and positively impact 1 billion lives. We fulfil this mission by investing in innovative, high-achieving management teams, just like the founders leading tCheck,” said Ross O’Brien, Founder and CEO. He continued, “We are very pleased to close our first cannabis venture fund this year and timing that with this investment is the icing on the cake. It was serendipitous for this particular deal to come through Entrepreneur’s Elevator Pitch series as we are partnering with Entrepreneur to launch their first venture capital fund which will have a much broader investment mandate. This new fund, Entrepreneur Select, will invest in companies from more traditional sectors and use bespoke practices to source the most promising and tenacious entrepreneurs. There is a lot to look forward to in 2021.”
