The round is the largest fundraising to date for a privately held medtech company in Europe.

CeQur Simplicity is a simple, three-day, wearable insulin device for discreet, convenient and injection-free bolus dosing. One Simplicity patch holds up to 200 units of rapid-acting insulin administered in two-unit increments and replaces, on average, nine mealtime injections over three days. Clinical research has shown that nearly 90% of patients using CeQur Simplicity reported following their insulin regimen better as compared to multiple daily injections MDI. The device is clinically proven and both FDA cleared and CE-marked. CeQur is headquartered in Horw close to Lucerne. CFO of the company is Douglas Günthardt, the former CEO of Siegfried and board member of the Ricola Group. “CeQur Simplicity offers a simple solution to a major barrier for many people who need mealtime insulin. This financing, which is transformative for CeQur, provides additional validation for the value of CeQur Simplicity as a simple, convenient and discreet bolus insulin-delivery device that is designed to address the burden of multiple daily injections for over 3 million Americans – and many more individuals around the world,” said Richard Mott, Chairman of the Board at CeQur.
