Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung: “Millions for a “spectacular idea” by a Bochum-based company”

The SHS portfolio company phenox, a strongly growing company in the field of neurointerventional stroke treatment, was portrayed by the WAZ. The company receives a grant of EUR 2.1 million from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) for its “anti-thrombosis” technology. This supports the development of coated implants for the treatment of brain aneurysms, which imitate the natural vascular wall. This should significantly reduce the lifelong antithrombogenic treatment of patients, which will be an important step towards avoiding complications. With its already 170 employees, the company addresses a huge market. phenox managing director Hermann Monstadt is therefore considering an IPO in order to promote the international growth of the company.
