How it all started...

We spent four years working with physicians and scientists of Charité Berlin, developing Health Tech innovations.
During this time, we noticed that even the best ideas had difficulty making it to market.

What was the problem?

Data management, the essential function of the backend of their innovation, was underestimated by almost everyone regarding:

Each team developed new solutions to the same data management challenges and invented yet another more or less usable backend.
This occurred over, and over again.

What is the problem with this?

The waste of resources.
A secure, compliant, performant backend costs as much as € 300 - 500.000. It consumes 6-12 months of development time.
These resources can be better invested.

In 2020, a lightbulb went off

Could there be an out-of-the-box Health Tech backend?

  • Regulatory compliant?
  • Very secure?
  • Blazing fast?

We needed precisely this, but it wasn't there.

If we succeed we might say: "Get your Health Tech backend done with ease"

The whole backend, with all of its hurdles, might be up and running in an afternoon.

And then? What other possibilities might open up?

More questions are now in our past:

The project took us on an 12-month-long deep dive into cybersecurity and regulatory compliance.

Footnote: Our optimism was questioned.

No need to worry. Even if we can't answer all of life's questions ;-) - we can answer these.

People, Product, Profit

We believe in this order. Not the other way around.
They say the first seven people in a company shape the culture forever.

basebox is in the early "architecture" phase, developing the foundation. We have a do-it-yourself mentality whenever that makes sense.

We are currently looking for one more developer, ideally with Rust experience.
