Boulder’s Enveda raises $51M Series A round

BOULDER — Enveda Therapeutics Inc. has closed a $51-million Series A fundraising round led by Lux Capital.

The company, which does business as Enveda Biosciences, is using artificial intelligence to identify potential therapeutics that occur in nature. The company is working on pre-clinical research into treatments for nonalcoholic steatohepatitis and Wilson’s Disease, two conditions where fat and copper build up in the liver.

“We see this investment as validation of a renaissance in natural product drug discovery,” said Viswa Colluru, the company’s founder and CEO. “This field can be transformed through recent advances in automation, machine learning, and metabolomics. At Enveda, we’re bringing all of these technologies together to unlock the vast untapped potential of natural products in the form of highly translatable medicines.”
