Kiva Lending Team: OpenHelix
We loan because...
We are a small company founded by 3 entrepreneurs who know that it takes help to get a good idea off the ground!
OpenHelix is a small biomedical research services company founded 6 years ago by two scientists and a businessman. The founders, two brothers and a close friend from graduate school saw that genomics--the sequencing and analysis of genomes--was generating an exploding number of analysis tools and databases. This caused a problem in the scientific research community, a wealth of data and associated tools that were impossible for researchers to find and learn, inhibiting progress in health and science research.They saw an entrepreneurial opportunity to help the research community and society. They founded a company that creates training resources for scientists and plan to help consumers understand genomics as personal genomics data becomes increasingly available.
