Avizia Plans Big Expansion, Hiring after Raising $4M
Founded by a team of former Cisco Systems executives, Reston, Va.-based Avizia is a developer of video conferencing technologies focused on telemedicine. The fast-growing startup recently secured a $4 million funding raise led by Washington, D.C.-based NextGen Angels, Blue Venture Investors, Middleland Capital and an unnamed firm, Avizia CEO and founder Mike Baird confirmed. Baird told DC Inno that the latest funding round--the company's largest to date--will be used to accelerate development, expand its workforce and explore potential deals similar to December's Emerge.MD merger.
"Our passion is on making solutions that are approachable, simple to use, and user-centric. Everything we do starts with the patient, nurse, or doctor in mind to make it easier for them to deliver quality healthcare. We constantly remind ourselves to keep it personal," Baird told DC Inno.
Avizia uses Cisco TelePresence technology to enable high-definition, real-time video collaboration customized to meet the unique product requirements and user needs of its clients in healthcare, education and government. Since December and the merger with Scottsdale, Az.-based Emerge.MD, Avizia has taken a directive focus on the healthcare industry.
