3. Elephas


Founded: 2020

Also honored in: 2023 Best Tech Startups in Madison

“Elephas is developing a technology platform to assess how live tumor cells respond to cancer therapies. We are harnessing the latest advances in cancer biology, multimodal microscopy, engineering, and artificial intelligence to revolutionize cancer treatment.

Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide, with the number of patients projected to triple by 2060. Despite advances in precision medicine and a significant increase in the number of available therapies, many cancer patients still derive no benefit from their treatment. Immunotherapy is an emerging type of treatment that can greatly benefit patients when it is successful. Unfortunately, today only 1 in 3 patients receiving therapy respond and only 1 in 5 receiving immunotherapy respond.

We maintain the native 3-dimensional cellular architecture of a patient’s tumor and enable ex-vivo real-time profiling of live tumor samples. The platform is being developed for use with immunotherapy agents alone and in combination with traditional chemotherapy and targeted therapies.”

Our customers report improvements in both individual and team efficiency in making data-driven decisions.

Today, there is data everywhere you look. But, it takes a significant amount of work, and several different tools, to bring meaningful insights to the surface. Your journey might include using one tool to slice and dice your data to clean it and prepare it for a deeper analysis, and two or more additional tools to use machine learning and visualizations to help you identify trends to explore. All of these tools create silos of information and barriers to entry that might be too high for the average user. DataChat gives analysts, especially non-programmers, a way to do it all and to do it in a collaborative and governable way.”
