Our company

At RIBOPRO, we are on a mission to revolutionize medicine, through mRNA.

This mission can only be achieved by collaborating with innovators around the world. And so, we are working hard every day to be the best partner in mRNA.

Dream ahead

Our vision

In 20 years from now, 90% of all new medicines will be RNA-based,​ because of the radically enhanced safety and efficacy of this class of therapeutics. With the power of mRNA, chronic illnesses ​will be curable, deadly diseases survivable, and rare disease treatment affordable.

Beyond medicine, (m)RNA will contribute to answers to the most important ecological, health, and food challenges we face today. Together, we can make this a reality, if we dare to follow our dreams.


Our mission

​It is our mission to revolutionize medicine by being the most innovative and supportive technology partner for RNA-therapy pioneers.
Together, we will create scientific breakthroughs, bring novel, better medicines to the patient, or address other societal challenges, such as the environment.

About us

Founded by scientists, our company is built on more than a decade of hands-on experience with mRNA synthesis and formulation. And we are happy to share our knowledge and expertise.

We started RIBOPRO from a desire to help innovators around the world bring new medicines to the patient. We believed access to high-quality material and to technologies that affect the performance of the drug were critical to that mission. Thus, through in-house research, we developed both the manufacturing processes for high quality mRNA and LNPs, and developed novel technologies to boost the performance of the mRNA/gain control over the delivery. These technologies not only provide better outcomes, but also provide freedom to operate in an otherwise competitive marketplace.

We go beyond. Beyond the expected, by challenging the status quo. By thinking ahead and working harder we achieve more. For us going above and beyond is our daily routine. We do so because we have a clear vision of the rewards when we do.

For investors

To accelerate the growth of RIBOPRO, we are currently working on a Series A investment round. With this round, we aim to become a house-hold name in the mRNA field and expand our technology leadership position. We prefer to build a syndicate with both industry knowledge and follow-up investment capabilities represented.
