Notable rounds this week:

  • Fortius Metals Inc., a Louisville advanced metals 3D printing startup that spun off from the Erie company Elementum 3D, raised $1.4 million in a pre-seed round. Fortius CEO Jeff Lints told BizWest that it exceeded its goal of $1 million. The company uses a technique called reactive additive manufacturing to create stronger, lighter metal fabrications. Fortius will immediately transition to a seed round that Lints hopes will be complete by the end of the year. The funding will be used for equipment and personnel, Lints said.
  • Lafayette financial data company FinGoal Inc. launched an indefinite equity, options and debt funding round. FinGoal creates products that analyze user spending and comparison-shops every transaction to ensure the user is getting the best value for the money. The minimum investment for the round is $5,000. No funds have been raised thus far.
  • Loveland developer McWhinney Real Estate Services Inc., under the entity MXD Granary SLC Investments LLC, raised $10.9 million in equity.
  • CleanRobotics Technologies Inc., a Longmont company that develops waste bins that use artificial intelligence to sort trash, recycling and compost, has raised $5.5 million of a $6.1 million round.
