WaferGen Biosystems is a California-based company for the development, manufacturing, and sale of state-of-the-art systems for genome analysis for the life science and pharmaceutical industries. Expanding from the US to Europe, start-up WaferGen settled in Luxembourg a few years ago to promote its cutting edge genetic testing technologies in Europe. WaferGen’s nano-based technologies are supporting labs doing genotyping, gene expression, next generation sequencing and single cell analysis experiments. WaferGen’s customers are working in drug discovery, biomedical research, personalised medicine or agronomy. WaferGen has developed the high-density SmartChip TE System for targeted sequencing. Practical benefits of this target enrichment methodology include flexibility in sequencing panel development, improved accuracy and precision with a simple, intuitive, lab-friendly workflow in target sequencing protocols.  The Luxembourg entity is led by Nicolas Bardonnet, having more than 20 years of experience in biomedical and pharmaceutical research. WaferGen has moved to the LIH Biomedical Research Centre where it is setting up a European training and demo centre.  In 2015 WaferGen will start an early access programme for its new single cell analysis technology. This technology is the key for the future process of personalised medicine. “Financial supports, the possibility to be located in a scientific environment and to access all administrative legal instances are the key to succeed and are exactly what Luxembourg is proposing. In comparison to major European countries, you are in direct contact with the highest responsible person in any administration. This allows you to get answers and decisions made very quickly and efficiently”, says Bardonnet.   Find out more about WaferGen and its technologies.
2Gears is a Luxembourg-based Fintech start-up developing software solutions. In addition to custom cross-platform applications, 2Gears is launching Governance.io, an investment fund oversight solution for depositors and management companies. The company was launched in 2011 and recently closed a funding round in Luxembourg to accelerate growth. In early April, 2Gears co-founders Bert and Rob Boerman visited the San Francisco Bay area. 2Gears CTO Rob Boerman was a speaker at the Senchacon Conference in Santa Clara; the annual event around Sencha Inc.’s leading JavaScript platform. At Senchacon, 2Gears presented its investment fund solution Governance.io, big data visualisations, mobile games and an interactive solar system viewer. “Presenting this to the top developers in the world, in the heart of Silicon Valley, was an excellent opportunity to see how European innovation keeps up. The incredibly positive feedback that we received is a confirmation that we have no problem keeping up, or even leading the pack! ” said Rob. 2Gears chose to work with Sencha’s framework because it allows to adapt software developments quickly to continuously increasing complexity and speed of business cycles. 2Gears developers are specialising in ExtJS JavaScript allowing to create complex and reliable Fintech solutions extremely fast. These applications run on all devices, from mobile and tablet devices to desktop computers. “Luxembourg has the highest number of financial sector players per square kilometre anywhere in the world. It is also the second largest investment funds centre in the world after the United States. This makes it a fantastic location to launch a Fintech start-up.” explains Bert.
