According to Dr. William Paiva, managing partner at OLSF Ventures and lead investor in the round, “Given the unprecedented interest in the Recuro business model, we will quickly follow this company formation and funding round with a larger round of funding which will further accelerate Recuro’s journey to build a new industry category.”
