GeneAdviser

Our ambition is to streamline Europe’s fragmented genetic testing market, using technology to create an international online marketplace, linking test laboratories with clinicians and enabling them to find, order and pay for tests.

 

There is so much support for early-stage businesses in Cambridge, from Cambridge University Entrepreneurs to Innovation Forum and EnterpriseWISE. Being part of the Accelerate Cambridge programme at the Judge Business School has helped us to navigate the Cambridge biotech scene.

 

The whole business ecosystem in the town has been of huge benefit. So many different people have been happy to give us their time, expertise and support to get us going.
