Amsterdam/Tübingen, 27th May 2021 
On its way to becoming the world's leading surgical performance platform, Incision is raising five million euros in 
capital in its series A. The new investors, the healthcare investor SHS from Tübingen, Germany and Rubio Impact 
Ventures from Amsterdam, see their commitment to specifically support the development of new services and the expansion 
of Incision's international business. 
Incision's platform provides learning and performance support for the full OR Team 
Surgery makes up a large part of hospital budgets, but clinical outcomes and efficiency vary significantly between 
clinics. It is a challenging area to improve due to the limited level of standardization, variances in surgical 
execution, and lack of process support tools. Incision's goal is to connect 10,000 clinics and improve 100 million 
operations per year. To achieve this, Incision is building a platform for surgical knowledge, supporting surgical 
performance and training so all clinics can achieve results at par with the top clinics in the world. Incision is 
currently active in 18 countries worldwide, serving over 200 hospital clients. 
"We are working closely with our hospital clients worldwide to grow the Incision platform. We are launching new 
products with them to boost the performance of their surgical teams and adding new users every day. We are very excited 
to have SHS & Rubio on-board as growth investors so we can accelerate our international rollout and move faster towards 
our goal to connect 10,000 clinics with our platform", says Incision CEO Ritsaart van Montfrans. 
"At SHS we have been actively following the trends in the OR and evaluating a range of investment opportunities. We 
believe that Incision's experienced team, its product offering, and strategy are the right ingredients to build a 
European Healthcare champion", says David Wehner, Senior Investment Manager at German MedTech investor SHS. And SHS 
partner Dr. André Zimmermann adds: "Incision fits perfect with our investment strategy of supporting European growth 
companies in the healthcare sector with our SHS industry expertise and long-standing network." 
"We are excited to back the stellar Dutch team at Incision on their mission to optimize performance in the OR and 
reduce surgical complications. Their impact is already global in nature, and is set to scale up to 10,000 clinics 
worldwide", says Eske Scavenius, Investment Director at Rubio Impact Ventures. 
With its next wave of expansion to the UK, Scandinavia, Belgium and the Middle East, Incision will be growing its 
international footprint further. Also, a number of features will be launched, enriching the platform with new learning 
materials, effective workflows, and sharing of best practices to improve on-the-job performance of individuals and
