- Braveheart Investment subsidiary Envestors has participated in a £1.2m equity fundraising for Fertility Focus, a UK company that specialises in fertility diagnosis and treatment.

Fertility Focus secured the money from a number of new investors including Envestors' members, Midven's Exceed Fund and the Angel CoFund.

One Envestors' member was instrumental in bringing in the Angel CoFund.

Envestors contributed to an earlier fundraising round, of £500,000, in November 2011.

Fertility Focus chief executive Robert Milnes said: "This funding opens a new chapter for our company and its products. It will help us expand our team in direct territories and greatly widen the marketing support we can provide throughout our sales channels."

Simon Harris, of Envestors said: "We have worked with Fertility Focus for a number of years and are delighted they have secured the funding they require to grow. We hope this will generate significant returns for our investors."
