Background

TrialSpark is a digital health company that accelerates the discovery of new treatments for patients by reimagining the clinical trial process.

Today, clinical trials are deeply inefficient. A single clinical trial can cost more than 100 million dollars and less than 10% of clinical trials are completed on time. Our mission is to bring treatments to patients faster by addressing these inefficiencies.
