Story so far

Rinodrive is a set of software tools that allows you to ingest data from any source in any format, interact with it, learn from it and enrich it to unlock insights and discoveries. Rinodrive is owned by Rinocloud Ltd, a company registered in the Republic of Ireland. Rinocloud is part of Integumen PLC, a vertically integrated life science business. Our management team is made up of scientists and engineers with experience in software, sensors, AI, optofluidic research, fintech, greentech, travel, healthcare: We’ve all lived with the pain of poor data management so we decided to build an end to end COTS data management solution that works!.

2015 – All about Data

In 2015 our team was working on an Eu funded big data and AI scientific research project. It was generating vast amounts of sensitive data and content in different formats and from multiple sources and locations. We were initially managing this data using memory sticks, local drives, dumb cloud storage and email. We started looking for ‘off the shelf’ data management to help us better understand the data and results we were generating. Despite an exhaustive search, we could not find suitable data management solutions. We found LIMS software and ELNS but nothing that would allow us to explicitly interact with our data and share insights across multi disciplinary teams generating different data formats from many sources located in different countries.


2016 – Minimum viable product

We could not find a product that had the levels of security and functionality we needed to manage the commercially sensitive project and its outputs, so with investment from international investors and Enterprise Ireland, we built our own.


2016 – Startup of the week

Silicon Republic
Our efforts started to be picked up by the press. “Our start-up of the week is Rinocloud, a Cambridge start-up behind a technology that  makes it easy for teams to work on data.”


2016 – From product to solution

Nearly everyone we talked to looked for access to our solution. They brought in team members. They referred it to colleagues and other groups.
Team leads, principal investigators, Professors, Heads of departments, engineers and developers started looking for access. Then robotics engineers, AI experts, automotive execs, food technologists – heavy users and generators of data – began to join, and give feedback. We had a story to tell and we needed resources to turn the story into reality. We met investors who shared our vision. These investors, like our users, spanned the globe because the problem of data management resonated wherever data was being generated.

2017 – Investment secured

As well as a scalable platform, great software and features and military grade security we’ve also made privacy and governance core. Today we’re focused on delivering big data type functionality, AI functionality and world class infrastructure to ALL organisations big and small.



Global footprint

“Rinocloud, whose systems allow scientists and researchers to structure their data, signed a memo promising co-operation on artificial intelligence with Shenzhen Intebridge Technology.”


A great team developing

“Tech entreprenuer teams up with academics at Cambridge University [to create the business] which has developed a data hub… The start-up was only established earlier this year but has already secured €1.2m in seed funding”


2018/2019 – Big science data breakthrough

We began to work with large companies with big data problems. This includes financial services, education and life science companies. In particular we helped automate labs and apply our AI to unearth more knowledge about the skin microbiome. This led to our acquisition in May 2019 by Integuemen PLC, giving Rinocloud access to some of the largest cosmetic, pharmaceutical and medical companies in the world.
