Berlin, 28 June 2022

In the financing round on Companisto, the pharmaceutical company DERMAGO GmbH received an investment commitment of just under 2 million euros within only a few weeks. More than 750 private investors participated in the pharmaceutical company, which has already launched 2 out of 3 reimbursable pharmaceuticals for international distribution on the market.

The pharmaceutical company has been developing and marketing generics for prescription medicines in the field of skin diseases. In addition, the company also has a patent-protected originator product in the same field.

By investing in DERMAGO GmbH, the investors had the opportunity to make investments in three pharmaceutical companies at the same time with DERMAGO GmbH acting as the parent company of its subsidiaries Aresus Pharma, DEGODE Pharma and Skin Care Pharma. Both DEGODE Pharma and Aresus Pharma are no strangers to the private investor network.

Already in 2018, DEGODE Pharma completed a successful financing round on Companisto. In 2019, Aresus Pharma followed suit and was also able to successfully complete the round.

In 2021, the parent company was founded to create synergy effects in the areas of distribution, administration, development as well as quality management and was carried out with the support of Companisto. The funds from the current financing round are to be used both for sales expansion and for the clinical study of a new indication.

Owing to the investment round on Companisto, the pharmaceutical company was also able to gain additional active supporters for the further development of the startup.

Along with many other relevant industries, investors from the health care and pharmaceutical industries can be found in the Companisto private investor network, who are supporting DERMAGO in its further growth.
