OSU affiliated startup Titan Intake Inc. recently received a strategic investment from Tulsa-based venture capital firm 46VC.
Titan Intake, a Tulsa-based software company, has developed a unique platform designed to automate the process of patient intake and referrals.
Unlike the traditional way of sending referrals by fax machine, Titan deploys a full
suite of tools that allows capture of incoming referrals, extraction of critical information
and integration of key data into the electronic medical record, providing a user-friendly
platform to close the loop between providers and patients and vastly improving the
workflow for clinicians.
“We have known the Titan founders for some time, having worked with them on early investments sourced through Oklahoma State University’s Riata Pre-Seed Fund, and we are now very excited to see their progress and be in a position to help with more substantial capital,” said Tracy Poole, 46VC managing partner.
Titan grew from a vibrant startup ecosystem that can be found at OSU.
“The OSU Research Foundation and its for-profit accelerator and venture capital arm,
Cowboy Technologies, has and will continue to build resources to support the burgeoning
technology-based, startup ecosystem at OSU and in the state that develops investible
high-growth startups here in Oklahoma,” said Elizabeth Pollard, executive director
of the OSU Research Foundation. “We are proud to see Titan on a great trajectory
and attracting early-stage venture capital support from 46VC here in the state.”
The Titan team is excited to have the 46VC team as an investor, said Patrick Bruce, Titan co-founder and CEO.
“Titan has been very helpful in our formative stages, from mentorship through providing
venture advisors with domain expertise and platform assistance,” Bruce said. “We work
very hard every day to improve the patient and provider experience, understanding
that efficiencies we can help provide at the earliest stages of the relationship will
enhance overall patient outcomes.”
The investment will enhance the local economy and promote innovation in the region by allowing the company to continue to grow its presence in Tulsa.
“We are excited to see Titan — an OSU affiliated startup – gaining commercial traction and success with a strong venture capital partner in 46VC, supporting the technology-based startup ecosystem in Oklahoma” said Daniel Will, executive director of Cowboy Technologies, which manages OSU’s Riata Pre-Seed Fund.
This significant contribution is made possible in part through 46VC’s special partnership with the Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology (OCAST) and leverages OCAST’s recent investment of U.S. Treasury SSBCI funds in 46VC’s Kinetic Fund.
