Sep 18, 2019

The Series A round was led by Preon Capital, the Geneva-based family office of Jari Ovaskainen, Europe’s 2014 Business Angel of the year. Preon was joined by a group of European and U.S. investors, including the Elysia Capital and Pygar family offices, linked respectively to the founder of the European unicorn Advanced Accelerator Applications and to the multinational diagnostic company Diasorin. U.S.-based investors Dolby Family Ventures and Susman Ventures participated in this financing. Pascal Levensohn, Managing Director of these funds, has joined the GenomSys board of directors. Founded in 2016, GenomSys has developed technology facilitating access to highly-secured personalized medicine services.

Based on the newly released ISO MPEG-G Standard, GenomSys’ Software Suite “will bring a dramatic reduction in genomic files’ size, a faster information transfer and more efficient data analysis”, says Claudio Alberti, GenomSys’ co-founder. As stated by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), MPEG-G “provides the enabling technology that will allow the community to create an ecosystem of novel, interoperable, solutions in the field of genomic information processing”. MPEG-G will also bring genomic information to personal devices, which will accelerate individuals’ access to personalized medicine, while enforcing strict data-privacy standards.
