Experts with passion

Scientific expertise combined with commercial skill and a great deal of enthusiasm: the people behind Syntellix.

How can one make a young company dynamic and successful in a particularly short time? By having an extremely slim structure right from the start, and being optimally embedded in a unique network of scientists and experts. Syntellix AG pursues here the principle of exponential organisation. In this way, it ideally combines vision and entrepreneurship, strategic management expertise, expert know-how and dynamic growth.

And ultimately, it is the people which have the biggest impact on a company and make it successful. The Syntellix team all share a common goal: they want to conquer the global markets with their products for the wellbeing of patients, and therefore help achieve a major breakthrough for a biomedical technology which helps to avoid risks, pain and high costs.
