During 2018 the company raised $270 million in equity capital at a $600 million pre-money valuation from strategic investors including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (“Gates Foundation”), CVS Health, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Danaher Corporation, and Morningside Venture Investments (“Morningside”).
