Helping create empowered patients
We don’t develop medical treatments - we build digital solutions that address the challenges of the modern patient journey.
Established by LEO Pharma as a small organization, we are built to drive radical innovation to bring our creation to market faster. Our work is enabled by LEO Pharma’s unique ownership structure – owned by the LEO Foundation, with no shareholders, all profits are reinvested to help patients.
