When was your company born and who is your core team?
We are an early stage startup, born in November 2021. However, the product was launched already in 2019 at the University of Geneva and the Geneva University Hospitals and became an institutional tool in 2020.
We are 3 co-founders, Myself, Galia (https://www.linkedin.com/in/galiars/) is our CEO, she comes from a strong business background and is a GTM expert and Olivier (https://www.linkedin.com/in/olivier-windisch-21b7781a7/), who is a urological surgeon and who leads the clinical research part.

We are an early stage but work already with > 10 hospitals in the EU and the USA. We were funded until now by grants from the Private foundation of the Geneva University Hospitals, the University of Geneva, and won the Credit Suisse Award for best teaching in 2020.
We are starting our pre-seed round, which will aim to penetrate the US Market, develop our product, build a strong team, and demonstrate our ROI through clinical research.
