PixelMax has received the investment from Praetura Ventures which has previously backed the likes of Artorius, Challenge Group, Culture Shift and Dr Fertility. It most recently helped a socially-minded technology company secure more than £2m. The latest funding round was completed with participation from ACT Capital Partners. PixelMax uses 3D interactive technology which enables businesses to create and host their own virtual worlds. The business, which is led by co-founders Andy Sands, Shay O’Carroll and Rob Hilton, has already collaborated with an NHS Trust to create a simulation of a hospital department, enabling patients and their families to familiarise themselves with the process and experience they can expect before having to go into hospital.

The investment and support from Praetura Ventures and ACT Capital Partners will now allow PixelMax to expand its team and define its go-to-market strategy to drive growth. Mr Sands said: "Right now there is a huge opportunity for PixelMax, but to get to the next level we need an investment partner that can provide strategic guidance and support, as well as an injection of capital. "The team at Praetura Ventures not only share our ambitions, they have a track record of supporting businesses just like ours and this deal represents a significant milestone in our growth journey."
