Project Update #6 — August 2022

First Data Provider Secured!

Starting with the biggest news, we are incredibly proud to be able to announce that a Medical Entity affiliated under one of the most prominent medical universities in Europe has formally signed an agreement to become our first Data Provider. This is a huge and very crucial step towards building a global medical data donation network, as it provides the very first input to our system of medical data based on patient consent! With one of the final pieces of our system now in place, this milestone brings us significantly closer to securing the first flow of donated medical data and Data Lake going fully live. It is also significant in terms of proof-of-concept, as it demonstrates that hospitals and clinics recognise the potential value in our system, and are willing to commit to become data providers!

OrangeDAO Investment

In more major news, we are thrilled to share with you that we have secured investment from OrangeDAO! Representing more than 1000 YCombinator alumni, OrangeDAO is the web3 arm of Orange Fund, and provides early-stage funding to disruptive crypto companies.

Talks with the European Commission

Last week, chairperson of the board Ligia Kornowska and our head of PR and Marketing Dinidh O’Brien were invited to a round-table discussion at the European Commission’s DG SANTE in Brussels to discuss our data donation scheme, medical innovation in Poland, and much more. It was an incredible opportunity to meet some of the people who proposed the data laws we are complying with — they understand the importance of data in medical innovation, and we opened the start of what will be an important dialogue as Data Lake looks towards European expansion in the coming months and years!

Media & Press

Data Lake is built to reach Data Donors on the scale of the millions. For this reason, education and media presence is fundamental.

People

  • Sonia Staniek has joined us as our in-house lawyer! Sonia comes with extensive experience in law; she has previously provided legal services for several firms in the media and software development industries, and will be bringing her expertise to Data Lake as our operations continue to grow and we look towards international expansion.

Final thoughts

As we approach the public launch of our product and our token LAKE, reaching milestones as meeting the European Commission and signing a deal with the first Data Provider settles the basis to build strong fundamentals for the years of the process of democratization of medical data to come.
