medDARE is a Dutch company incorporated in Amsterdam with collaborators in The Netherlands, Switzerland, and Ukraine. The Company’s business has a double origin of, on the one hand the collection, processing, and shipping of biospecimen mostly for companies active in diagnostics research and, on the other hand, data image annotation for companies active in medical diagnostics machine learning research. This rather unique and highly specialised background made us aware of the increasing need of the rapidly growing AI- assisted medical diagnostics industry for medical data of the right quality and with the appropriate metadata. Annotation of such data is also increasingly required.
Over the past 20 years, Martin has been a serial start-up entrepreneur (co-) founding a number of businesses in B2B, financial services, data annotation for machine learning and a medical CRO. Martin always believed that a strict corporate governance framework is a prerequisite to creating a company value. This is even more true in today’s complex international environment with ever increasing IP and data security requirements. Following four successful exits, Martin founded medDARE, responding to the rapidly increasing need for original high-quality raw and annotated medical data to support organizations around the world to meet their research and development objectives.
