Cactus Communications (CACTUS), a technology company accelerating scientific advancement, announced today its acquisition of Mind the Graph, a SaaS platform with the “world’s largest scientifically-accurate illustrations gallery.”
This technology acquisition will enable CACTUS to provide automated, DIY science figures and AI-powered scientific communication solutions to the researcher community, academic publishers, and the life sciences industry.
“This acquisition will bring direct focus onto CACTUS’s business division, namely, its brand Impact Science, which offers solutions for science dissemination and research engagement with peers, the public, and policymakers. This strategic investment will help Impact Science scale up faster by providing an automated DIY solution that can help customers create accurate scientific figures and improve the reach of their research,” the statement said.
Speaking on the acquisition Abhishek Goel, CEO & Co-founder, of CACTUS said, “I am excited about this acquisition as it perfectly aligns with CACTUS’s vision of enabling scientific advancement through technology. With so many research papers being published every year, it has become more difficult to catch the attention of the reader. Researchers need to curate content in alternate forms of scientific communication (e.g., posters, infographics, graphical abstracts) that are more engaging and can create a long-lasting impact.”
“We believe this acquisition will help us satisfy the changing nature of customer demands through the AI-powered solutions of Mind the Graph. Further, this will enable us to provide product offerings that complement our service offerings. We will continue these strategic acquisitions to scale up our technology offerings to adequately meet the needs of global customers across academia and the life science industry,” he added.
Commenting on the acquisition, Fabricio Pamplona, Co-founder, of Mind the Graph said, “This partnership will help Mind the Graph grow faster and reach a much larger set of customers as it will benefit from CACTUS’s understanding of the industry and its significant presence across multiple geographies.”
“Mind the Graph’s products and technologies fit well with our vision of empowering the industry with AI-powered products. We are excited to build on the existing AI solutions further to provide the best value to our customers globally,” Nishchay Shah, CTO, CACTUS further added.
