Plantation company leads venture capital in South Florida — and it’s not Magic Leap


    CarePredict, a Plantation company that developed a wrist-worn health tracker to help protect seniors, raised $9.5 million in the first quarter, the most of any South Florida company.

    The Plantation company that most often has led financing in recent years has been Magic Leap, the technology startup that has raised more than $2 billion. The company led 2018 venture capital in the state, but didn’t raise any funds in the first quarter, according to spokeswoman Julia Gaynor.
