In the latest fundraising news based on SEC filings, TransEnterix, RumbleOn, Scientific Environmental Design and Creisoft are seeking capital.

The details as reported by North Carolina Business News Wire:

MORRISVILLE – TransEnterix, a medical device company, wants to raise $950,000 from warrants and options, according to a filing Friday with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

TransEnterix uses robotics to improve and facilitate minimally invasive surgery.

The company is focused on the commercialization of the Senhance Surgical Robotic System, a multi-port robotic system that brings the advantages and benefits of robotic surgery to patients while enabling surgeons with innovative technology, such as haptic feedback and eye-sensing camera control.

In August, TransEnterix announced that it installed a Senhance Surgical Robot at the Institute for Surgical Advancement at Florida Hospital Orlando.

“The selection of a U.S. innovation center is a critical milestone in the global expansion of Senhance,” said TransEnterix Chief Executive Officer Todd M. Pope in a statement. “We are pleased to partner with a leading institution such as Florida Hospital Orlando and the clinicians at the Institute for Surgical Advancement.”

The Institute for Surgical Advancement is the first U.S. center to explore the new surgical robotic platform. TransEnterix, founded in 2006, now has Senhance systems in hospitals in France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States.

TransEnterix also developed the SurgiBot System, a robotically enhanced laparoscopic surgical platform.

According to the filing, the offering is not made in connection with a merger, acquisition or exchange.

TransEnterix stock closed Friday at $1.48 per share, up 5 cents.

CHARLOTTE— RumbleOn Inc., the Charlotte-based online retailer of used motorcycles, has raised $1.5 million in debt among nine investors, according to a filing from the Securities and Exchange Commission.

RumbleOn previously raised $2.48 million in a private placement sale on March 31, which was used for development and working capital purposes. The privately owned company did not disclose what the recent funds will go toward.

The e-commerce platform for buying and selling motorcycles sells shares OTC, over the counter, but filed for a $25 million IPO on Sept. 1.

RumbleOn plans to list on the Nasdaq exchange under the symbol of RMBL. No pricing terms have been disclosed.

HIGH POINT — A High Point-based heating and cooling company has raised an additional $125,000 from the $400,000 it initially raised earlier this year.

Scientific Environmental Design Inc. hopes to bring its present total of $525,000 to $1 million, according to a Form D filed Thursday with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The listed executives on the filing are Chief Financial Officer Jack Woerner, CEO William Millis, director J. Phillips “Phil” Johnston and founder Harry Boody.

Scientific Environmental Design specializes in creating uniquely fitted heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems for homes, according to its website. The company creates a 3-D model of each home, running “unmatched” software analytics to ultimately determine the most energy efficient HVAC system.

CHARLOTTE — Creisoft Inc., a Charlotte-based real estate software company, has raised $10,000 in private equity funding, according to a filing made Friday with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The offering comes from three investors and is not in connection with a business combination transaction, such as a merger, acquisition or exchange offer. This is the first sale by the company, and it is not expected to last longer than a year.

Creisoft was founded in 2014 and is led by chief executive officer and co-founder Ryan Letzeiser. The startup developed Obie, a community platform focused on the investment sales sector of real estate.

Letzeiser had previous experience as a commercial real estate investment analyst at Ram Real Estate and Hudson Capital Investment before creating Obie.
