Genomes.io is a secure and private app for sharing and storing your DNA data. The company aim to solve the problem of DNA data breaches and exploitation by allowing users to store, manage and commercialise their own genomic data. Genomes.io is raising this money to bring their B2C and B2B products to life.
DNA data is the most valuable piece of personal information you will ever own, but as soon as your DNA is tested you lose privacy, ownership and control. DNA testing companies sell consumer DNA data to large pharmaceutical companies in multimillion-dollar deals, share it with law enforcement, and are increasingly responsible for data security hacks.
Genomes.io has developed a secure technology that empowers users to keep control of their DNA data. Users can own and secure their data and control access to it from their smartphone. No one is able to access these fully encrypted virtual machines (not even Genomes team) until explicit permission is granted by the individual holder.
Auto Lease Compare aims to transform the growing UK car leasing industry. They have developed an online platform to enable users to compare deals from top leasing companies all in one place. Within seven months of trading, the company has quickly cemented its place in the industry and has already secured 40,000 subscribers.
Since 2017, the leasing and rental industry has grown by 10%, demonstrating that more and more people are choosing to lease vehicles. The flexibility to switch to a brand new car every few years is becoming more and more popular, rather than buying a car that quickly depreciates in value.
Auto Lease Compare has identified that there is a lack of user-friendly leasing comparison websites online. From their own experience, they have found that users have to go through various websites before finding a good deal and can now offer a solution to what was once a time-consuming process with poor customer service.
