Brightstar announces investment in Milwaukee health tech startup

Nonprofit BrightStar Wisconsin Foundation Inc. today announced an investment it made earlier this year in Geno.Me, a health tech startup based out of Milwaukee and founded by Britt Gottschalk.

The company’s technology platform links genetic information with medical records and allows researchers at universities, companies, and hospitals to search and purchase data to advance their studies, furthering precision medicine. Individuals giving consent for Geno.Me to sell their anonymized information receive payments each and every time their data file is used in research. This would be the first searchable ecosystem of this type in the world. The company is actively seeking contributors as well as researchers to join the platform. HealthX Ventures out of Madison led the current investment round.

Additional information is available on the company website.
