Austin-based startup Pristine has raised $5.4 million in Series A financing in an oversubscribed round led by S3 Ventures. Other participants included Capital Factory, HealthFundr, and a syndicate of strategic clients. This new money will allow the company to expand its R&D, sales, marketing, and operations teams, supporting its rapid growth.
Pristine makes the EyeSight platform, which is touted as the first commercially available, HIPAA-compliant telepresence platform for Google Glass. The company is also finding success with EyeSight outside of healthcare, working with pharmaceutical, medical device, and manufacturing companies on remote support and training applications.
“We have deployed EyeSight in ERs, ORs, ICUs, ambulances, and even patients’ homes,” said Kyle Samani, cofounder and CEO of Pristine. “We understand that security is paramount. There is a lot of misinformation about Glass and privacy out in the wild; we have gone the extra mile to guarantee security and control for our clients. Our utmost focus on security will fuel our growth as we scale our wearable communication technology throughout healthcare and across other industries.”
