The Basel-based data management company closed a USD 10 million financing round. The new funds will go towards accelerating its clinical and genomic data platform.

BC Platform announced that it has successfully closed a Series B financing round, raising USD 10 million. The round was led by Debiopharm Innovation Fund and the Finnish venture capital and private equity company Tesi, and was supported by existing investors.
