About Vineti
Vineti is the first commercial cloud-based platform to expand patient access to life-saving cell and gene therapies. Vineti was co-founded by GE and the Mayo Clinic to solve the key challenges patients, medical providers, biopharmaceutical companies and regulators face in the delivery and commercialization of 21st century medicine. The Vineti platform integrates logistics, manufacturing and clinical data to improve product performance overall. Caregivers and pharmaceutical pioneers are empowered to help more patients more effectively and safely, treatments are better understood and improved over time, and most importantly, there’s an opportunity to provide greater health outcomes—and cures—to patients in need.

Leading pharmaceutical companies and organizations, such as the American Red Cross, are adopting Vineti’s platform to expand patient access to cell therapy products. Vineti is backed by GE Ventures, Mayo Clinic Ventures, and DFJ.
