Minoryx Therapeutics, a company specializing in the development of new drugs for orphan diseases member of CataloniaBio & HealthTech, today announces the completion of a Series B funding round of €21.3 million, the most important in the Catalan biotechnology sector so far this year.
The funding round was led by Fund+, joined by SRIW, SFPI-FPIM and Sambrinvest, in addition to all Series A investors (Ysios Capital, Kurma Partners, Roche Venture Fund, Idinvest Partners, Chiesi Ventures, Caixa Capital Risc and HealthEquity).
