About Our Organization

BIND is a health-tech startup that combines digital technology with genetic counseling to empower families and individuals to make informed genetic testing decisions. We're currently working to pair more prospective parents with genetic counselors by focusing on:

  1. Using alternative digital marketing channels to reach a demographic that would otherwise not consult with a genetic counselor.

  2. Streamlining the genetic counseling session by collecting most of the data pre-session and providing information to patients and physicians online.

Once a customer answers a few basic risk assessment questions, we assign them a genetic counselor and schedule a consultation. The consultation is conducted remotely using web conferencing tools or phone.

We’re based in SoHo, in New York City. We are part of Blueprint Health, a prominent health-tech accelerator program, which provides us with access to mentors, investors and healthcare companies. We are also part of the SBIR Impact NYC Program, a NYCEDC-funded program for innovative companies.
