Sonio, a French AI startup that helps fetal medicine professionals in monitoring and securing pregnancy-related ultrasounds, has received funding from the EIC Fund, a leading funding organization that regularly supports startups. The funding comes in addition to the previously received €5m from Elaia, Bpi France, and OneRagTime.
Sonio, established a few years ago, benefits from five years of R&D and clinical research at the Necker Hospital in Paris, the PRAIRIE Institute, and Ecole Polytechnique. As of now, the company already offers a comprehensive set of solutions to assist over 250 practitioners, from beginners to the most experienced ones.
Within the last 2 years, Sonio has brought two significant products into the fetal medicine market: Sonio Diagnostics and Sonio Pro. Sonio DIagnostics is an ultrasound solution for professionals, and Sonio Pro is a more secure and efficient pregnancy diagnostic solution launched recently in October.
The new funding will be used to accelerate the development of newer features on the platform, like embeddable genomics and image recognition. Cecile Brosset, CEO and Co-founder of Sonio, said, “Our hard work has been fruitful. I am now more confident than ever that we can help secure pregnancy care worldwide with collective and artificial intelligence.”
Sonio is also partnering with several companies, like Samsung (France), one of the leading women’s health ultrasound service providers, Lifecell (India), Manager Systems (Brazil), and Dynamic Medicals (Nigeria).
