SimPrints is a startup company co-founded by Alexandra Grigore (NanoDTC cohort of 2012) and other Cambridge University Students. SimPrints works on accurately linking people to their digital records in developing countries.

NanoDTC Student Alexandra Grigore (c2012) and a team of other students from Cambridge University are piloting SimPrints, a fingerprint identification system for applications in global health, microfinance and fighting corruption.

Alexandra divides her time between the very demanding NanoDTC Programme, and working as Product Developer for SimPrints.

The team have been awarded US$250,000 after winning a highly competitive Seed Grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s Saving Lives at Birth competition. The R&D phase will be matched by ARM Ltd, making it a total grant of $450000.
