FOUNDER & CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
I am a proud “Nomad” who has spent years living in 4 countries across 3 continents and thus feel comfortable working with people from diverse cultures and with different skill sets. I am currently leading AthGene which is on a mission to redefine the way in which people determine how to lead their lives. I believe that future is one in which everyone has access to their genetic information, as well as the tools they need in order to take action based on that precious information. I believe that future is already here.
FOUNDER & CHIEF TECHNOLOGY OFFICER
I am a traveler and avid technologist. I have during my career had the pleasure of working with a wide range of technologies. The highlights are as follows. I have done research within biotechnology, specifically biodiesel. I’ve build physical robots and build models along with designing drivers to control them. I’ve furthermore been part of a 4 man team designing control software for the satellite Solar Orbiter, that’s heading towards the sun. I am currently leading the development of our technological infrastructure covering everything from genetics to logistics.
Theis Thorn Jakobsen
FOUNDER & CHIEF DATA OFFICER
I am an analytical person who enjoys finding patterns in data and making predictions – so it’s not surprising that I am a trained Bioinformatician. I am curious by nature which has put me on a neverending exploratory quest, ranging from building small gadgets that control my lights, to web development, and analysing big data sets.
My real passion is traveling. I love exploring new places (mostly through my diving goggles) and to me, nothing is better than lying on warm beach sand with a cold beer in my hand.
