DMC announces first close of Series B financing, raising $34M

In Colorado, DMC Biotechnologies completed the first close of its Series B fundraising, raising $34 million with investment from Cibus Enterprise, Capricorn Partners, Sofinnova Partners, Breakthrough Energy Ventures, SCG, Boulder Ventures, Solvay Ventures and Michelin. DMC is commercial with its first product, a bio-based chemical intermediate with primary applications in home care and human nutrition.

The company has a deep pipeline of predictable, scalable, cost-competitive products, addressing sustainability challenges across a wide range of industries, including animal nutrition, human nutrition, personal and home care, and a broad range of chemical intermediates.

DMC’s technology platform addresses the key barriers that have plagued the biotech industry for decades including standardization, robustness, and predictability across scale. Addressing these challenges translates to a dramatic reduction in the time to market and the investment needed to bring products to commercialization. Both are significantly improved relative to the industry standard.
