  • The Tifin Group LLC raised $22.3 million in its Series B funding round on Tuesday, with investments from the wealth-management arms of major financial institutions JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) and Morningstar Inc. (Nasdaq: MORN). The company, which is based in Boulder, acts as a holding company and accelerator for nine financial-technology startups.
  • Unsupervised.com Inc. raised $35 million in its Series B funding round Friday morning. The Boulder company develops artificial intelligence software to comb databases for insights without needing specific input from a data scientist.
  • Accure Acne Inc. began a $20 million fundraising round to support ongoing trials for its laser-based acne treatment. The Boulder company is using laser treatment to destroy skin glands that are overproducing oil and lead to severe acne while leaving other skin layers nearby unaffected.
