Our mission is to accelerate the adoption of healthcare innovations

It’s hard making it simple to navigate the byzantine US Healthcare system. So if you’re interested in solving challenging problems at the intersection of Healthcare and Data, we’d love to hear from you!

Why we founded Arrakis

If a lifesaving innovation launches in a forest and no one hears it, did it make a sound?

As healthcare entrepreneurs, we experienced the challenges of selling to  providers first-hand. Figuring out which markets to enter, who to sell to, and what messaging to use is time-consuming and complicated.

So we founded Arrakis to make it easier.

We want healthcare providers and patients to benefit from the latest  technologies. They can’t do that if they don’t hear about them, so we’re building best in class data and software to make commercializing healthcare products easy.

What does “Arrakis” mean?

In the sci-fi novel Dune, Arrakis is the only planet in the Universe which produces The Spice - a substance that provides users with visions of the future. At Arrakis, we’re creating The Spice for Commercial Teams selling into Healthcare by supplying prescient insights about their market.
