BOSTON, Mass., February 8, 2022 -- /PRNewswire/ -- TetraScience, the R&D Data Cloud company, today announced expansion of the company’s business to meet the needs of the fast-growing and vital biotech segment.
The biotech industry broke many of its own records in 2021. A total of 176 biotech companies priced IPOs in 2021, the busiest year by deal count since 2000, according to IPO research firm, Renaissance Capital, and IPOscoop.com. Venture capital funding for biotech companies hit record highs nationally in 2022, exceeding $30 billion for the first time in the 12-month period ending September 2021. In Massachusetts alone, 2021 shattered records — with biotech garnering $13.66 billion in venture capital funding; surpassing the sum of statewide venture capital funding for biotech in 2019 and 2020, and marking an increase of 70%, year over year.
"Biotech companies need and expect scientific discovery to occur at the speed of cloud computing ," says Chad Garrett, Chief Revenue Officer with TetraScience. "For this, their cloud-native tech stacks must be purpose-built around their workflows and the use cases they serve. The Tetra R&D Data Cloud has proven to have ideal product-market fit for these fast-moving organizations."
