Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) August 13, 2014 – Angel Capital Group, a leading national angel group, is proud to announce that Prima-Temp, Inc.(www.prima-temp.com) has joined its portfolio of companies. Prima-Temp specializes in wireless temperature monitoring to address a variety of physiological needs including fertility awareness, athletic performance, heat illness, and sleep quality, and sends alerts to users’ mobile devices. Prima-Temp adds a new dimension to Angel Capital Group’s distinguished list of portfolio companies and compliments its focus on science and technology ventures.
Prima-Temp is a Colorado corporation headquartered in Boulder, Colorado. OvuRing™ is a groundbreaking yet elegant approach to fertility awareness in the “Quantified Self” world. This wireless temperature sensor continuously and passively tracks a woman’s core body temperature, detecting the subtle temperature changes that occur before ovulation (that other methods are unable to detect), then sends an alert to her smartphone when she is most fertile. Lauren Costantini, CEO of Prima-Temp, stated “Prima-Temp has revolutionized wireless, continuous core temperature sensing, and this funding by Angel Capital Group will play an integral role in bringing our products to those that need them most. Furthermore, ACG’s reputation and deep industry connections will prove valuable in Prima-Temp’s future endeavors.”
Eric Dobson, CEO of Angel Capital Group, elaborated on the advantages of the company saying “We strongly favor great science and great technology, and Prima-Temp has both.” Dobson added, “We were instantly excited by the quality of the management team, founders, and advisors. We were even more enthralled with the product. We are proud to welcome Prima-Temp to the portfolio and expect great things from the company.”
