Enatom secures €900K investment for its 'virtual dissection room'

GRONINGEN, the NETHERLANDS – LUMO Labs, NOM and UNETI Ventures together invest €900,000 in University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) spin-out Enatom to further develop its ground-breaking 'virtual dissection room', enabling students and healthcare professionals worldwide to explore human anatomy in unprecedented detail, free from geographical and physical barriers.

Enatom already serves students and professionals in over six European countries, including the Netherlands, Belgium and Austria, and is receiving additional interest from different regions around the world. The funds from this recent investment will be used to expand its technical and sales teams and to strengthen the startups foothold in health education.   

“We want to make comprehensive anatomical education universally accessible and engaging.” says Lusanne Tehupuring, CEO of Enatom. “We give it our all to become the market leader in high-end 3D anatomy visualization for training and educating healthcare students/professionals worldwide and we are immensely excited to now have these renowned investors by our side towards reaching that goal.” 

Enatom's virtual dissection room is accessible for healthcare students and professionals on their usual personal devices such as laptops, tablets, and VR headsets, anywhere and anytime. By leveraging photorealistic scans of real human specimens and utilizing point-cloud techniques – which use data points within a 3D space to create accurate and detailed object representations – for seamless streaming of complex data, the product surpasses traditional learning methods in both accessibility and effectiveness.  

“Our meticulous approach to scanning human specimens and our deep respect and understanding of the intricacies of the human body, position us as a highly reliable resource for educational institutions,” says Fabian Debats, Co-founder of Enatom.

Tristan Dikkers, representing NV NOM, praises the startup's technological approach, “The point cloud technology of Enatom allows them to offer very realistic content. We believe that Enatom can bridge the gap between theory and practice in anatomy education and are very excited to be a part of the journey of Enatom.”

Sven Bakkes, Founding Partner, LUMO Labs: “Enatom operates at the crossroads of two of our key impact goals; quality education, and good health and wellbeing. Our investment in Enatom reflects our belief that this team of relentless impact-driven entrepreneurs can and will transform anatomical education around the world. By doing so, they will improve the lives of many.”

Wadim de Boon, Investment Manager, UNETI Ventures highlighted the platform's broader impact, “Realistic anatomy education is essential for various medical courses. Enatom's 3D photorealistic platform has the potential to make these more accessible and efficient. We believe that will become valuable as it indirectly relieves some pressure from the declining care capacity. We are excited to help Enatom realize its potential.”

This investment follows earlier funding from G-Force Capital and Triade Investments for the development and successful validation of Enatom's approach and technology, in collaboration with among others UMCG, the Medical University of Vienna and Amsterdam University Medical Center.
