Our Story

gMENDEL WAS INSPIRED BY THE PERSONAL STORIES OF THE TWO FOUNDERS, CHRIS AND ZORAN.

In 2016, Chris’s 4-year-old daughter, Ilma, was diagnosed with selective mutism. The diagnosis forced Chris and his family to slow down and reflect on what was important in life. It was then when Chris decided to take a 10-month parental leave to give his daughter the time and attention she needed to thrive. With the strong support of her family, Ilma made tremendous progress and is now taking part in all learning and social activities at her school.

Some years ago, Zoran received the news that his childhood friend suffered from a rare cancer type. The exact diagnosis was only possible after DNA sequencing. While going through the complicated journey of healthcare, Zoran realized that although DNA sequencing had been a long-available technology, it was only accessible to few, due to its high cost.

Their ambition to involve DNA sequencing in routine clinical practice, led Chris and Zoran to the foundation of gMendel® in 2020.

They committed to developing a smart technology that could provide early, accurate and affordable diagnosis of genetic disorders to all heroes out there living with rare diseases.

At gMendel® we think big, start small and act now.

Genetic Disorders​

A genetic disorder is a disease caused in whole or in part by a change in the DNA sequence away from the normal sequence.

Genetic disorders can be caused by a mutation in one gene, by mutations in multiple genes, by a combination of gene mutations and environmental factors, or by damage to chromosomes, the structures that carry genes.

Social responsibility

gMendel contributes to the communities where we live. We are committed to our employees, diversity, equity, inclusion, and environmental sustainability.

Purpose matters. It’s the reason we exist, after all. As a purpose-led organisation, we aim to make a positive impact on our people and the society through our core business, as well as initiatives that make our communities a better place to live in.

Impact stories
This is why, in 2020 and 2021, we partnered with Besesaka Foundation, a non-profit organisation in Ghana that is actively changing the lives of children in the local community of Bukom through boxing, education and leadership mindset. Together with Besesaka Foundation and its Boxucation academy, we aimed to nurture talented boys and girls, by providing them complete educational opportunities and the skills they need to succeed in life. After two years of continuous support and engagement, we are now proud to see that this initiative has matured, and activities, now led by the local community, are well on track. Therefore, we believe that it is wiser to channel our efforts into a new inspiring project, still at infancy.

Connect for impact
As we strive to make an even greater impact, we are constantly looking for early-stage inspiring initiatives that promote diversity, equity and inclusion, active at any area, across the globe. If you wish to share and steer the impact of your project with us, please contact us at info@g-mendel.com.
