Genemod raised $1.7 million to help life sciences companies and researchers with its cloud-based inventory software.
The Seattle startup aims to improve automation and research operations for customers such as Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the University of Washington School of Medicine. It plans to roll out new product management software with the new funding.
Genemod was co-founded by Jacob Lee and Jin Choe, both University of Washington graduates. Defy.vc led the round, which included participation from Omicron, Unpopular Ventures, Underdog Labs, and Canaan Partners Scout Fund.
