Angels invest in local medical device startup


A Naples-based investment fund has bet its money on the success of a local orthopedic medical device startup.

The fund, Tamiami Angel Fund II, or T2 for short, has invested nearly $1 million in Catalyst OrthoScience to help the company ramp up the production of what it describes as a “breakthrough product” for shoulder-replacement surgery.

“The product we feel is revolutionary, not evolutionary. And we liked the progress that the management team had made,” said Tim Cartwright, chairman of Tamiami Angel Funds.
