Third Wave Analytics
Savitra started Third Wave Analytics in 2014. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: 
Q: How did you get started on Third Wave Analytics?
I earned an MBA from UC-Berkeley and have a degree in engineering science from the University of Virginia. By the time I came up with the idea for Third Wave Analytics, I had over 20 years of consultant and leadership roles in life science, consulting, and digital marketing. In those positions, I witnessed firsthand how inefficient and ineffective technology was in laboratories.
While the front office had powerful resources like Salesforce, the lab was often forced to use spreadsheets to keep track of their data and information — meaning things were being lost in translation from test results being saved in the wrong place to potentially even physically losing results with no electronic record of the research or tests being performed. Knowing there had to be a better way, I reached out to Salesforce, already a multi-billion dollar company with innovative SaaS solutions for most industries, to propose a collaboration that would bring a new kind of software into the laboratory. I started with a mere $200 in the capital, but I knew my idea had unlimited potential so I went for it.
