Skin Analytics wins Silicon Valley mentorship

last modified Sep 09, 2014 05:30 PM
Skin Analytics, which has developed a remote monitoring service to detect melanoma, has won a mentorship to help commercialise its business and raise funding in Silicon Valley.

 

The company, one of an increasing list of ideaSpace alumni, has developed an app which helps to scan an individual’s moles by taking an accurate snapshot of each mole and carefully monitor them for change.

The app prompts the user to undertake further regular screenings, helps them to understand the risks involved, suggest any precautions which should be taken and provide a report for a GP if any changes have been detected.

The University of Cambridge provided the foundations for Skin Analytics to get started and also introduced the company to Founder.org, a Silicon Valley based mentorship programme to help start-ups commercialise their business and raise funding from the Valley.

Neil Daly, Skin Analytics CEO, believes Cambridge has everything needed to become a major innovation hub like the Silicon Valley.

He said: “I don’t think Skin Analytics could have been started in many other places in the world. With the University behind us and now with the support of Founder.org, I hope we can add to Cambridge's growing reputation as a hotbed of innovation.”
