The Wolverine Venture Fund, a $5.5 million fund led by students at the University of Michigan, announced last week that it joined Arboretum Ventures in a $25 million Series A investment in Sonitus Medical, a California-based medical device company. This is the second time the Wolverine Venture Fund has invested in Sonitus Medical. This time around, the Wolverine Fund invested $100,000 in Sonitus Medical; in March 2011, it invested $250,000. The round was led by Abingworth.
