Founded by Krish Krishnan and his wife Suma Krishnan, Krystal Biotech is working to develop treatments for rare, orphan skin diseases caused by the absence of, or a mutation in, a single gene. At the time of its launch in 2015, both partners were already experienced biotech executives who had been working together professionally for more than a decade. According to Krishan, he became fascinated with the world of biotech after a company of his received approval for a drug, which led to hearing stories from friends about their children being able to take the drug and feel better. Now, the Pittsburgh-based company is focused on leveraging its novel, redosable gene therapy platform and in-house manufacturing capabilities to develop therapies to treat serious rare diseases.

At first, Krystal was self-funded. It later took on two rounds in corporate venture capital that equaled $18 million before going public in September 2017. As a public company, Krystal has raised $386 million in total. With numerous products in the pipeline now, Krystal continues to develop its portfolio, which necessitates more room to grow. In January 2020, it broke ground on a second center for gene therapy production: a 150,000-square-foot building that it’s calling ASTRA. According to the company’s leadership, its primary objective in 2022 is to prepare for the potential approval and launch of B-VEC, which treats Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa, in the U.S.

78. Caption Health
Category: Software & Data

Founded in 2013 and headquartered in Brisbane, California, Caption Health’s mission is to detect disease early—when there is the highest potential for impact—by leveraging artificial intelligence and ultrasound. Its team of best-in-class entrepreneurs, engineers, and clinicians are committed to transforming care, expanding access, and reducing costs.

Artificial intelligence and ultrasound technologies are not new. Yet nobody had integrated the two to drive early disease detection and create better healthcare experiences until Caption Health. It makes imaging for early disease detection possible, thus supporting an informed and personalized care pathway that saves time, resources, and positively impacts lives.

Ultrasound can be difficult to master—taking years of specialized training to learn—and image quality can vary. Simply performing the exam involves unnatural hand-eye coordination and unintuitive visuals. Traditional ultrasound software doesn’t provide instruction on how to move the ultrasound transducer to capture an image, or any real-time feedback on the quality of images being captured. However, with Caption Health’s technology, any healthcare professional can capture diagnostic-quality ultrasound images thanks to AI guiding them through every step of the scanning and image-capture process in real time.
