Alira Health Acquires RedCrow, an Equity Crowdfunding Platform for Healthcare Startups
Alira Health (www.alirahealth.com), a global healthcare advisory and technology company, today announced the acquisition of RedCrow, an alternative investment platform that provides individual investors with easy access to expert-vetted healthcare start-ups. The financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
RedCrow was launched in 2016 by Brian Smith, a former Morgan Stanley financial advisor, and Jerry Harrison, an entrepreneur and member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Talking Heads. RedCrow mines the “wisdom of the crowd” to help find companies that resonate with an audience that may not only use a product but also invest in and realize a return from the company that invented it. This acquisition extends Alira Health’s ability to partner with patients across the lifecycle of drug and device development into the financing phase for early-stage pharma, MedTech, and healthcare services solutions.
“From personal experience, the founders at RedCrow recognize that not every drug or device receives the right investment,” said Gabriele Brambilla, CEO, and founder of Alira Health. “By reinventing and democratizing the way early-stage companies get funded, RedCrow helps more healthcare solutions come to market that can save patients’ lives. Alira Health already partners with patients across the development lifecycle. With RedCrow, we can now involve patients, their care circles, and other investors in the financing phase for new products that may also improve their care outcomes.”
RedCrow’s Brian Smith added, “We founded RedCrow with the belief that healthcare investing should be more immediate, transparent, and accessible, and that patients and their family members should be able to help fund future developments that may impact their own care. We embrace Alira Health’s mission to humanize healthcare and view our platform as a natural extension of Alira Health’s business model. At the same time, early-stage companies on the RedCrow platform can benefit from the breadth of Alira Health’s extensive services offering.”
Since its founding, RedCrow has marketed over 250 fundraises totaling $250 million. Recent success stories include HeartBeam (NASDAQ: BEAT), Sen Jam Pharmaceutical, Activ Surgical and Centerline Biomedical.
Headquartered in Mill Valley, Calif., RedCrow, which was created because of the 2012 Jobs Act, is a direct investment and marketing platform for healthcare innovation, providing curated deal flow for all investors. RedCrow leverages both the industry experts to provide comprehensive analysis on healthcare startups, enabling a wide array of investors to help healthcare innovation succeed. When a startup joins RedCrow, it's equipped with the tools it needs, like virtual deal rooms, to market its company and investment opportunity. RedCrow leverages the knowledge of its advisory board, which includes financial, scientific, and medical professionals, along with its online community of investors, healthcare professionals, and patients to identify and support innovative companies.

REPLY: "Everything can become a digital asset" Is the Paradigm Resulting From Reply's ‘Digital Assets Trends’ Research23.3.2023 09:00:00 CET | Press release
The digital asset market is growing exponentially. Thanks to blockchain technology and the new generation of operators using tokenization platforms, it is possible to turn everything that can be digitally archived into a digital asset, with recognised value and established ownership. This is what emerges from Reply's new ‘Digital Assets Trends’ research, based on the Reply SONAR platform. By analysing industry studies, scientific articles, patents, documents, and B2B content published in the last year, and integrating concrete experiences from Reply's clients, the study examines the main trends related to digital assets. Tokenization is the first step to bringing real-world assets and financial instruments onto the blockchain, representing an opportunity especially for those of an illiquid nature (e.g., high-value art, public infrastructure, private equity). The main advantages of tokens include the construction of a peer-to-peer network without intermediaries that also serves as a dec
European Mainframes Are Getting a Makeover23.3.2023 09:00:00 CET | Press release
As business returns to normal after recovering from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, enterprises in Europe are seeking innovative, cost-effective ways to combine mainframe dependability with the flexibility of the cloud, according to a new research report published today by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm. The 2023 ISG Provider Lens™ Mainframes — Services and Solutions report for Europe finds that an increased focus on updated IT infrastructure and digital transformation has led to a corresponding acceleration in the mainframe modernization services market. Although many companies still depend on them for reliability, availability and security, mainframes can be an albatross when it comes to innovation, the report says. Many European enterprises find they are unable to respond rapidly to the deployment of new or updated products. Enterprises that are still running mainframes recognize the need to update their le
