Why "Arrakis"?

Our Mission

To accelerate adoption of lifesaving technologies.

Commercializing life-saving products is hard because Healthcare is complex

When commercializing a life-saving product, time matters. Every extra day that a life-saving technology is not adopted is a day that patients die. But Medical Technology companies must navigate a complex web of Patients, Providers, Payors, and Government Agencies in order to Commercialize - a process that is notoriously hard and time consuming.

Our mission is to make it easier to commercialize lifesaving products

We want to reduce the time from life-saving product idea to market saturation. To do this, we’re building a commercialization decision engine to help Medical Technology companies successfully navigate Healthcare’s complexity.
