Why we invested in FindMeCure

The problem

Clinical trials, the bedrock of medical advancements, are facing unprecedented challenges. Up to 80% of clinical trial delays stem from patient recruitment and retention issues. Astonishingly, 37% of sites under-enroll, and 11% don’t recruit a single participant. The initiation of a clinical trial is a labyrinth of complexities, and delays can result in staggering costs, jeopardizing the trial’s success.

The market

The clinical trial landscape is evolving rapidly. Patient recruitment remains a significant hurdle, with high dropout rates leading to substantial financial and human costs. The rise of decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) post-COVID-19 offers both challenges and opportunities. AI’s potential to disrupt and enhance every stage of clinical trials is undeniable, promising more efficient, accurate, and cost-effective research. 

Why now?

The clinical trial sector is experiencing exponential growth, driven by the COVID-19 pandemic and advancements in drug discovery technologies. With the FDA emphasizing better diversity and inclusion of patients and the increasing costs associated with personalized medicine, there’s an urgent need for solutions like FindMeCure. The projected spend on medicine and R&D by major pharmaceutical companies further underscores the importance of optimizing the clinical trial process.
