Theranos: Tracking a Startup in Trouble Through Public Data (Enigma)

Enigma: Theranos: Tracking a Startup in Trouble Through Public Data. “Theranos, a medical technology startup born in the dormitories of Stanford University, had a meteoric rise and an equally spectacular fall. To better understand how Theranos rose to prominence only to succumb to its present, diminished state, we traced the company’s footprint through public data and news reports. In doing so, we gained a nuanced view into the health of the company over time. While some of the information became publicly available only after hard-hitting news stories, the data provides valuable context around both Theranos and the potential risk associated with other similar companies.”
