RICHMOND, Va., May 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — UZURV Holdings, Inc. (UZURV), a technology company focused on the ADA and Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) markets, announced today that it closed a $5 million series A financing round. The funding will be used to accelerate the company’s nationwide expansion and continue development of its Mobility Platform to lower the cost and improve accessibility of safe and reliable transportation.
The financing was led by former Admiral Group CEO, Henry Engelhardt and his wife Diane Briere de l’isle-Engelhardt. Henry Engelhardt serves on UZURV’s Board of Directors.
“We are pleased to report that we have closed our Series A financing,” said UZURV CEO, John Donlon. “We appreciate Henry and Diane’s support and look forward to their continued involvement as we build UZURV into a market leader through transformative solutions that are truly life changing.”
