Intelligent Medicine Acquisition Corp.

The Beginning of the end of disease

About Us

We are a newly organized blank check company incorporated in Delaware, formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses. While we may pursue an initial business combination with a company in any sector, we intend to focus our search on life science companies that are using artificial intelligence (“AI”), machine learning (“ML”) and big data to create and power a new model of drug discovery through research and development that is far faster, less expensive and more predictable than the decades-old system of drug development we still follow today.

With a broadening set of applications for biotechnology that includes research tools and infrastructure, diagnostics, therapeutics, data, and industrial outputs, we believe the life sciences sector offers compelling opportunities for investors who possess a broad overview and understand the trends and themes. We combine a unique team of thought leaders who have deep experience and national reputations within academia, government and industry that will enable us to attract and evaluate the over 250 companies utilizing these new tools across the life sciences industry.
