“Our goal has been clear since day one – a relentless drive to ensure patients get the right diagnosis and the most effective treatment. We’re looking forward to working with our partners to scale this effective approach across disease areas and around the world,” PathAI co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Andy Beck said. “The global network and deep expertise in technology and life sciences brought by General Atlantic, alongside the continued support of existing investors like General Catalyst, can only enhance our ability to effect change toward this major, impactful objective.”
“PathAI is a clear leader in the emerging digital pathology industry that is being disrupted by technology and machine learning,” said Dr. Michelle Dipp. “As we remain committed to supporting the next generation of life sciences companies, we’re thrilled to partner with PathAI, which seeks to address critical problems by bringing cutting edge storage, viewing, and AI-enabled analytics to help pathologists make fast, accurate, and consistent diagnoses.
“PathAI’s work could radically improve the accuracy and reproducibility of disease diagnosis and support the development of new medicines to treat those diseases,” said David Fialkow, Managing Director at General Catalyst. “GC is honored to once again back founders, Andy Beck, and Aditya Khosla, Chief Business Officer Tiffany Freitas, Chairman Jeff Leiden, and the entire PathAI team. The positive – and global – impact of getting this right cannot be overstated. We think this is the team that has all the potential to bring these game-changing solutions to market.”
