Genomcore, a company dedicated to providing bioinformatics solutions through genomic medicine, wants to expand its market after recording a 73% increase in turnover in 2020.
The group has made its way thanks to its prices, which range from $73 (€60) to $359 (€295), making it possible to consolidate its position in the Iberian market. In the meantime, it has already set targets for expansion abroad, with the United Kingdom in its sights, according to Oscar Flores, CEO of Genomcore.
In 2020, the company had a turnover of $912,000 (€750,000), of which $244,000 (€200,000) came from research and development (R&D) projects. Looking ahead to 2021, the company aims to close the year with $1.34 million (€1.1 million) in turnover, which is equivalent to a forecast increase of 53 points. Of this figure, it is estimated that only $182,000 (€150,000) will come from R&D projects. In the last year, Genomcore has grown from 20 to 30 employees, which translates into a 50% increase in staff.
