CureMint is excited to announce the company has successfully raised its series seed financing round totaling $1,250,000. Cofounders Brandon McCarty and Christopher Rathgeb will use the funds to advance product development, hire local engineering and operational roles, and scale the company’s highly competitive go-to-market strategy.

The funds were raised with support from Raleigh-based venture capital firm Cofounders Capital.

“Over the past 4 months, we have talked to all of the stakeholders in Dental Support Organizations that CureMint is serving. Brandon and his team focused on the user experience first to ensure adoption, which is what great companies do,” states Tim McLoughlin, Partner, Cofounders Capital. “When everyone in the organization loves using the software, it leads to frictionless onboarding and rapid standardization and ROI for ownership. That combination made it an easy decision to invest.”

Currently, the North American dental industry is plagued with inefficient procurement technologies and practices. Spend under management suffers while innovation takes a back seat to clunky, legacy systems costing dental practices, large and small, absorbent amounts of time and money.

Brandon McCarty, CureMint CEO and Cofounder, states, “CureMint was founded with a purpose to help the lives of all we touch. Our core competency is in building delightful technical solutions to make our end users’ jobs easier and more productive. Now more than ever, it is important we execute on this purpose as our overworked healthcare professionals are trying desperately to get the supplies, they need to do their jobs.”

With a rapidly growing customer base, increasing from 10 to over 120 in one year, CureMint aims to be the single solution meeting the increasing demands of dental procurement.

“We are extremely grateful that Cofounders Capital believes in our mission and team, and we look forward to using this capital to further support the local economy and great talent base that exists in the Raleigh-Durham area,” McCarty continues.

CureMint is thrilled to not only take on the challenge of dental procurement but support the local workforce and economy. CureMint is headquartered in Durham, North Carolina’s leading start-up hub and workspace, the American Underground and plans to start hiring immediately.

“Durham boasts a flourishing entrepreneurial ecosystem that has contributed to North Carolina’s tech industry 20.6% growth over the past five years, the third-highest growth rate in the country,” states Adam Klein, Chief Strategist, American Underground. “This is just one of the many reasons why we see burgeoning companies, like CureMint, move their companies across the country and choose to call Durham, NC their home.”
