What does science represent for you?
Making sense of things. Knowledge - a basis for healing. It is empowerment and yet a puzzle. I find it truly fascinating.
How is your new role as a CEO different from being a scientist?
For me, entrepreneurship is very similar to research. First, you are executing a project based on a hypothesis. Then, you must gradually ensure that the puzzle's parts fit together. As a start-up, our testing environment is the market instead of a lab. That’s humbling.

From an idea till today

How did it all start? With a Challenge.

Max has been diagnosed with Huntington’s disease: a rare, fatal genetic disorder. Unfortunately, there is no cure for this disease. But, many scientists are working relentlessly to develop a therapy.

One of the scientists was Dr. Jana Miniarikova. Jana (Hypherdata, co-founder) was working on her PhD. in a company co-developing miRNA-based gene therapy for this disease. She experienced firsthand the need for external data and other research-related services to fast-track product development.

During my Ph.D. studies, we collaborated with various universities and companies. The entire pre-clinical research counted for more than seven years. Looking back, we could have shortened it in half. The problem was and still is that we are scattered as scientists or product owners. We do not honestly know where to find the right solution or whether there is room for meaningful collaborations. There usually is. We don’t know enough and fast about it.

Jana, Hypherdata CEO, explains.

For Jana’s project, a large quantity of work had to be created in collaboration with other organizations. This required precious time to search for Solutions and build connections. In the end, doubling the development time – only to get the product to the clinical trial.

After my Ph.D., I didn’t see the point in continuing my research career in the lab. I preferred to be part of the Solution that changes the whole system.

Jana, Hypherdata CEO

Having one single platform for life science organizations to access data and services will result in: products reaching the market faster, less time and money wasted, and budgets allocated to more development. Which gives me hope for a better future.

And this is the reason behind Hypherdata.
