At Apheris, we are empowering organizations to jointly analyse their data while protecting intellectual property and preserving data privacy. We are building the foundation on top of which organizations collaborate on data and distribute the resulting value. Our product allows companies to develop new data-driven business models and create entirely new data marketplaces. Via leveraging cutting edge technologies like decentralized computation and cryptographic approaches, we open-up privacy-preserving data ecosystems within and between institutions. This allows data scientists to analyse third-party data without direct access to it. Owners of big amounts of sensitive data on the other side can unlock value by providing their data via the Apheris platform without risking their intellectual property. We have set up such data ecosystems for top 10 pharma and chemical R&D enterprises and are ready for more. Enabling new ways of collaboration and innovation is not just our purpose, collaboration is as well one of our core values. We are driven by impact and strive for the impossible. We build a safe environment for our team where we are responsible together and everyone commits to take up ownership. Together, we create a whole that is far more than the sum of its parts. We are always hungry to learn and stay humble while we grow. Our team of world-class researchers and engineers at the intersection of data privacy, cryptography and computational sciences is backed by some of the world’s best investors and tech leaders like LocalGlobe, Twitter chairman Patrick Pichette and MuleSoft founder Ross Mason. With their help, we currently focus on productization of a general-purpose tech core and on winning our next 10 early customers. If you want to join us in our exciting and rapid growth phase and collaborate with us, we would love to get to know you.
