Today, they were in Mountain View, CA at Google HQ for Google Demo Day representing Nashville and the EC. Josh and Susan pitched their business to Silicon Valley investors at Google today and walked away with a $100,000 equity investment from AOL founder Steve Case.
As part of Google for Entrepreneur’s demo day, 10 companies from Google’s tech hub network, which includes Nashville’s Entrepreneur Center, were invited to present their companies to venture capital firms at the company’s Mountain View, Calif., headquarters. At the culmination, Case, acting as a demo day judge, awarded each company with $100,000. For InvisionHeart, founded by Vanderbilt University cardiac anesthesiologist Susan Eagle and led by CEO Josh Nickols, that investment means the company is close to completing a $1.25 million Series A funding round that will allow it to finish its technology phase, seek clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and begin sales.
“We thought we’d come out here and just have an opportunity to present to Google, develop some relationships, network a bit,” Nickols said. “100K from Steve Case is certainly a big piece of our Series A.”
