Sentira XR Announces Successful Completion of its Seed Investment Round


Sentira XR, a UK-based provider of medical and healthcare VR simulations, today announces the completion of its seed investment round raising £250 000. The investment capital will be used to support the development of their medical simulations and to launch their go-to-market strategy. Angel investors with expertise from across the edtech field participated in the SEIS funding round. 

Dr Tony Payton and Dr Martin Fergie from the University of Manchester founded Sentira XR to revolutionise the training of healthcare professionals using VR and AI technologies. Experienced edtech leader Jeremy Carter joined them in late 2022 as CEO.

Sentira XR’s simulations allow practitioners to engage in authentic conversations with patient avatars whilst simultaneously carrying out standard processes and procedures. Built-in assessment tools mean that they receive ongoing personalised feedback.
