More About Gabe Siegel, CEO of Augmentiqs
Gabe Siegel is the CEO and co-founder of Augmentiqs, a company that develops augmented reality and digital pathology capabilities for the existing microscope. Prior to starting Augmentiqs, Gabe worked for multiple medical device and digital pathology companies, focusing on marketing strategy and communications. Gabe also worked in the M&A department of one of the world’s largest accounting firms.
As a marketing manager in a company that was in the digital pathology space, it was there that he became aware of the workflow, cost and clinical challenges of whole slide imaging and other digital pathology technologies. Recognizing the benefits of microscope and the glass slide remaining as the raw data, in addition to FDA still not having approved screen-based primary diagnosis, Gabe developed the concept for augmented reality microscopy & microscope-based digital pathology.
Gabe received his BA in accounting & marketing from DePaul University in Chicago, and his MBA from the University of Haifa. He lives in Israel with his wife and kids.
