Elevation Oncology, a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of precision medicines for patients with genomically defined cancers, announced today the launch of the Company with a $32.5M Series A financing, to explore innovative models for real-time identification, patient referral, and enrollment of patients with tumors driven by rare genomic alterations.

TARANIS, an ag-tech startup that uses aerial surveillance and machine learning to help prevent crop-yield loss, said on Wednesday that it has raised US$30 million in a Series C round led by Vertex Growth and Kuok Group’s Orion Fund (managed by K3 Ventures).
Tam Hock Chuan, managing director of Vertex Growth said: “The adoption of Taranis’ solutions will help growers and crop consultants to detect, analyse and treat crop issues at their earliest signs, taking preventive measures with unprecedented precision. This will give them a higher degree of control over their crop yield than ever before, particularly relevant in Asia where the agriculture sector has a relatively lower yield per hectare compared to global benchmarks.”
