Picture of three students who are the creator of Bombe IncStudent launches new data analysis tool for scientists

Fourth-year Business and Computer Science student Jack Gao met his business partners at The Next 36, a program designed to nurture entrepreneurship in 36 Canadian undergraduates. Jack got together with Eddie Kim, University of Guelph and Susie Pan, Queen’s University, with one goal in mind – to keep Canada on the cutting edge of science.

To do that, they tackled a seemingly small problem. “The best and brightest scientific minds in the country were wasting absurd amounts of time struggling with software, instead of doing world-changing science,” said Jack. “We must make our scientists more efficient and effective and that's why we are building Bombe.”

Bombe is a cloud-based data analytics tool designed for scientists. It offers a clean and simple design that is very user-friendly, so data from scientific instruments can quickly become publication-ready figures. Bombe stores and process the data in the cloud, eliminating the need for a supercomputer. The trio launched Bombe in open beta at the end of February to positive results.

“We had a significant number of beta users within the first 24 hours after launch, getting the highest traffic we’ve ever gotten,” Susie told The Queen’s Journal.

Jack and his partners are always looking for scientists to test Bombe and for feedback from the scientific community. Check out Bombe's Facebook page or read more about the tool on The Queen’s Journal and Guelph Mercury.
