23 Year Old Internet Entrepreneur Launches New Healthcare Venture

Jay Kaplan, a recent graduate of Goizueta Business School at Emory University, and native Washingtonian, has launched a new healthcare internet start-up called Future Genesis (FGen for short). The private company was funded by former executives of another DC based healthcare start-up, Audax Health, which was recently acquired by United Healthcare’s Optum division.

Washington, DC, May 29, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Jay Kaplan, a recent graduate of Goizueta Business School at Emory University, and native Washingtonian, has launched a new healthcare internet start-up called Future Genesis or FGen. FGen is located in Georgetown, along the waterfront at Washington Harbour. The private company was funded by former executives of another DC based healthcare start-up, Audax Health, which was recently acquired by United Healthcare’s Optum division.

Future Genesis provides low cost high quality DNA banking and storage services to allow depositors to safeguard their unique DNA sample, and to take advantage of future medical advancements. FGen sells a swab kit, which requires no blood; only cheek cells, which in addition to the swab for permanent storage, contains a swab designed to be passed along anonymously to the designated research organization of the user’s choice. Such donations allow each customer to collaborate directly with researchers, and to do their small part in helping to eradicate disease.

“Washington is a great city for start-ups and it was important to us to be fully DC-based and DC- operated,” said Kaplan, founder and Chief Operating Officer. “Our offices are in Washington Harbour and our cryogenics lab where we store our DNA samples is in Rockville. Our executives are lifelong DC natives and were successful internet start-up entrepreneurs at WebMD and Audax Health.”

“We like the wealth of high tech professionals in DC, especially web design and programming professionals. And these young professionals like working in attractive places with good nightlife and restaurant options. Washington Harbour is the perfect place for our company, and we look forward to growing and taking advantage of everything DC has to offer.”
