Genomelink is a DNA App Store. If you’ve had DNA tested from Ancestry or 23andMe, you can transfer your DNA data to Genomelink to unlock many apps. We believe that consumer genomics is still like the 90s of the Internet. While over 50M people have got DNA tested in the U.S., the number will continue to grow billions worldwide in the following decades. Genomelink will become the default data storage and app store in the future.

We are on missions to 1. Build a world #1 consumer application platform, 2. Bring back DNA data ownership to your hand, and 3. Help advancement of genomics and health science.

Why join us?

  • Vision: Genomelink is a DNA App Store. If you’ve had DNA tested from Ancestry or 23andMe, you can transfer your DNA data to Genomelink to unlock many apps. We believe that consumer genomics is still like the 90s of the Internet. While over 50M people have got DNA tested in the U.S., the number will continue to grow billions worldwide in the following decades. Genomelink will become the default data storage and app store in the future.

  • Our achievements: we have $500K+ monthly revenue (top 3% of YC S21 batch) and 500K+ DNA uploading users from 100+ countries. We were profitable in 2020. We raised $9M+ from investors including Y Combinator, Sompo (Led Plantir & Noom), Sony, Metaplanet (Skype founder’s VC), and BerkeleySkyDeck.

  • Team: Genomelink was founded in 2017 by founders with experience in consumer genomics businesses in Japan. Tomo from M3, Inc. ($70B medical platform), Yuta from MyCode (#1 consumer genetic testing in Japan), and Ken (Tech & bio-info lead at a joint venture between Illumina and Sony). Also, we work with world-class researchers in population genomics, including Carlos Bustamante, P.I. from Stanford University. The team works as a global professional remote team. Core members include PM and head of growth from consumer-centric health data platform companies such as Mango Health (acquired by TrialCard) and Citiizen (founded by the Apple Health team, acquired by Invitae), bioinformatician from Invitae (leading medical DNA test service), and Ph.D. scientists with consumer genomics experiences.
