Gendius has launched pre-registration for early access to an upcoming crowdfunding campaign via CrowdCube. Having already reached 75% of its £400k target, it is looking for those with a passion for the mHealth/diabetes to invest in its innovative intellin® platform.
intellin® uses artificial intelligence to calculate an individuals risk of developing complications from their diabetes and then tells them how to manage these.
With an ambitious growth plan, Gendius will look to drive the uptake in the EU and prepare for launches in the US, Middle East and South East Asia. It will use the funds raised to further improve the app functionality and user experience, develop their Artificial Intelligence algorithms as well as gaining the NHS and App store users as paying customers.

Gendius have been working with patients and clinicians to develop intellin®, an app that takes an individual’s clinical history and tells them their risk of developing complications from their diabetes and how to manage these.
Our mission – To ensure that every person with diabetes understands their risk of complications and how to manage them.
The NHS alone spends over £11 billion a year on diabetes and 80% of these costs are avoidable and due to complications of the disease. The personal impact of diabetes is huge with the disease leading to; blindness, kidney failure, amputation, heart attack and/or stroke.
The number of adults living with diabetes has almost quadrupled since 1980 to 422 million adults and this will reach 629 million by 2045.
