About us

What we stand for

Normal photo 1495572557

We are the team behind Castor EDC (Electronic Data Capture), a web application that allows medical researchers to collect data for their clinical studies. We are one of the fastest growing HealthTech companies, having tripled our customer base in the last year. We are proud of the fact that our customers are our biggest growth engine. Once they use our product, they fall in love and tell their fellow researchers.

Our goal

Accelerate medical research

We want to accelerate medical research by unlocking the potential of every researcher. Starting with an easy to use and affordable EDC we want to help researchers throughout the entire medical research process. We believe that standardizing and reusing research datasets is key to meeting tomorrow’s healthcare challenges.

Our EU Horizon 2020 Grant

Our growth is accelerated by the fact that we have been awarded a €1.1M grant as part of the European Union Horizon 2020 SME (Small and Medium sized Enterprises) Instrument program. This allows us to expedite our growth plans and develop our products much faster than anticipated.

The media is starting to pick up on our story too:
Financieel DagbladEU StartupsTech.eunu.nl and ZorgVisie.

"We are changing the way medical research is done, and with that improving healthcare worldwide."

Office life

How we work

We work in a healthy (low carb salad @ lunch, but also Fries Friday), efficient (no overhead!), and challenging environment. We have daily body breaks (see right) and frequent meditation sessions. Working with us also means having time for other important things in life. We love tech and are always finding new productivity hacks (in Slack, IFTT integrations, marketing automation, etc) to allow us to start the Friday drinks early 😀

Our quarterly team weekends is when we recharge and create memories!
