About Sympatic

The Why

Our Story

Our startup was born out of a desire to promote data sharing and protect the privacy of individuals whose genetic information is stored in large-scale databases. Piers Nash, our founder, was part of the team that created the Genomic Data Commons, a massive cloud-based library of genetic code intended to facilitate health innovation. However, the release of this library also exposed vulnerabilities to darker entities who could potentially use the data for nefarious purposes.

Determined to find a way to prevent this from happening again, Piers founded our startup with the goal of providing data owners with the assurance that their information is being used for good and not being accessed by unauthorized parties. Our platform promotes secure and responsible data sharing, enabling organizations and individuals to collaborate and advance scientific research without compromising privacy.

We believe in the power of data to drive innovation and transform healthcare. Our mission is to provide a secure and reliable platform that fosters collaboration and data sharing while protecting the privacy and confidentiality of individuals. Join us on our journey towards a better future for healthcare and scientific research.

Our Approach

At Sympatic, we believe that the best way to build truly innovative technologies is by using reductive elegance. Just as a sculptor removes stone to reveal the underlying creation, we keep our code clean and minimalistic, focusing on what's essential to achieve revolutionary results.

We strive to create workflows that sit above technologies, building software that is modular, composable, and scalable. Our aim is to simplify cloud infrastructure and DevOps by providing automation through codification. We're committed to architecting resilient systems that self-heal and auto-recover, ensuring that our technologies are reliable and always available.

Above all, we value pragmatism and adaptability. We understand the importance of open-mindedness and humility, accepting that we may not always have the right answers. We continuously learn, evolve, and innovate, pushing the boundaries of what's possible to drive meaningful change in the world.

Join us on our mission to revolutionize technology by building elegantly and with purpose.
