Minnesota startup GeaCom raises $812k for life saving telecommunications device


GeaCom PhrazerBased on SEC documents filed earlier this week, Duluth-based GeaCom has secured an unattributed $812,499 in an equity financing round.

Phrazer, GeaCom’s core technology, is the convergence of hardware, software and media.  As a hand held device, Phrazer aims to find a patients native language and culture (in 15 seconds or less), discover immediate medical issues, gather vitals and connect to medical history through an EMR system.

The application of Phrazer is intended for emergency medical and life-threatening situations, including but not limited to:  the emergency room, urgent care facilities or field use (rapid response/disaster scenarios).

For a more detailed overview of the company’s origins, leadership and Phrazer, see our earlier interview with CEO Mat Johnson. New product prototype images (Gichi, Bulldog, Phrazer Headphones) have recently been posted to the company’s website, reflecting both the innovative nature and global potential of this Minnesota startup.

GeaCom is a strong contender in the Minnesota Cup’s Tech Division and could very well end up advancing to the next round when the official announcement is made — as scheduled for later today…

    Wow, I thought I'd never see the day (post-2000) a MN pre-revenue company would raise even 100k nonetheless 800.
