VGo gets funding to scale up for healthcare

November 23, 2012

VGo Communications received $900,000 debt financing to help the company scale up and focus on providing remote presence for the healthcare industry.

They’ve changed their website to present the various ways that VGo robots can be useful in hospitals, with visiting nurses, as a post-op communication device and for medically home-bound students.

VGo has taken in close to $11 million in venture funding and debt financing since it was founded in 2007. But now they are centering their marketing on a particular market niche from which they’ve had much success and press: healthcare.
