Veritas currently has 65 workers and the forecast for 2023 is to have more than one hundred employees on the payroll
Veritas was born in 2018 by Luis Izquierdo, Vicenzo Cirigliano, and Javier de Echevarría, who have accumulated years of experience in the field of genetics, diagnosis, and biotechnology. Initially, the company was linked to Veritas Genetics, a company founded in 2014 by George Church. Later, the company was backed by Charme Capital Partners and Amadeus Capital Partners.
Veritas arose as a project that aspired to make genome sequencing and its clinical interpretation available to all citizens as a tool to prevent diseases and improve health and quality of life.
Charme Capital Partners, the European private equity firm, and Amadeus Capital Partners, a global technology investor, reached an agreement in 2022 to sell Veritas to LetsGetChecked. However, De Echevarría remains CEO of Veritas.

Likewise, the company has had a laboratory in the 22@ technological district in Barcelona since April 2021, a project that Veritas launched after investing five million euros. “In the last year we have invested in new sequencing equipment, becoming the largest laboratory for prenatal studies in Europe and one of the largest in genomics,” says De Echevarría.
Veritas has just launched a new polysene risk analysis (PRS) service on the market, a pioneer in Spain, which makes it possible to stratify an individual’s risk of developing diseases such as breast cancer, prostate cancer, type 2 diabetes, or cardiovascular diseases.
