COR-1 is a peptide-drug, which inhibits the auto-antibody-mediated myocardial damage in heart failure.

The lead investor in this series A round is MIG AG Munich, Germany. Co-investors in the investor consortium are GC Fund, Bayern Kapital and KfW Bank. The shareholders High-Tech Gründerfonds, Bio-M AG and SeedFonds Bayern also participated in this round. Corimmun was supported by Matthias Guth Corporate Finance Consulting in the preparation and closing of this financing round.

"We are delighted that we could attract MIG AG as lead investor and experienced and reliable partner. With this solid financial basis we can concentrate on the best value generation by a successful clinical development of the lead project COR-1 ", comments Corimmun´s CEO Dr. Götz Münch the closing.

"Besides the attractive market potential and innovative product concept of Corimmun we are pleased by the experienced management. Moreover, we were convinced by the scientific basis of Corimmun´s projects which were awarded in two "GoBio" grants. The successful tech transfer out of outstanding German research institutes into a private company is an excellent example for the economical power and value generation potential", says MIG member of the executive board Michael Motschmann.
