This Philly startup is out to get CloudMine’s old clients

After the Center City company filed for bankruptcy, the founders of another cloud compliance startup called Dash put up a splash page: It's waiving installation fees for former CloudMine customers.

After beleaguered cloud services company CloudMine filed for bankruptcy, customers were given an ominous warning: Change providers within a limited time or your data will be erased.

That’s when Dash sprung into action. The startup, founded in 2015, offers a similar HIPAA-compliant platform that, unlike CloudMine, relies on a combination of public cloud infrastructure — like Amazon’s massive AWS server network — and its own layer of regulatory compliance.

“We’ve had client prospects that have used CloudMine in the past,” says cofounder Jacob Nemetz, who saw it fitting that the company launch a promo deal: Any CloudMine clients looking to switch providers won’t have to pay Dash’s installation fee, which normally runs a few thousand dollars.

“Migrations are always difficult,” Nemetz said. “It could take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.”

The company has a team of four perched at WeWork’s 1430 Walnut St. location. It recently raised a $400,000 seed round from local backers like Ben Franklin Technology Partners, Contrarian Capital and other individual investors. So far, it lists Bethlehem, Pa.-based Carenade, an unnamed Boulder, Colo. hospital and a few urgent care centers as clients.

The CloudMine bankruptcy filing comes months after it had severed off a third of its workforce. The company, founded in 2012, had raised over $16.5 million in venture capital from local investors, including selloff-mode VC firm Safeguard Scientifics.
