After their first technology company, Invite Media, was acquired by Google in 2010, Nat and Zach teamed up again to bring modern software and data analytics to the oncology industry.
Flatiron Health was founded by Nat Turner and Zach Weinberg in 2012 in response to witnessing several family members and friends battle cancer. After their first technology company, Invite Media, was acquired by Google in 2010, Nat and Zach teamed up again to bring modern software and data analytics to the oncology industry. Since then, the company has grown into a leading provider of cloud-based software for oncologists and sophisticated analytics tools for life sciences companies in the oncology space.
Stripes has known Nat and Zach since their days at Invite Media, and the Stripes team built a relationship with the Flatiron Health team as they successfully executed on their vision to become a leader in the oncology software, data, and analytics space. When Nat and Zach decided to raise a Series C financing led by strategic investor Roche, the world’s largest oncology pharmaceutical company, they reached out to Stripes to see if we would partner with them as they entered their next phase of growth.
After several years of rapid growth and product development, Flatiron Health and Roche decided to deepen their partnership with Roche acquiring the business for $1.9 billion. We continue to be big fans of the Flatiron Health team and the value they are driving for all constituents in the oncology ecosystem as they strive to improve the way the world treats cancer.
