Philly startup Tendo Systems is still in stealth

Tom Paine

There’s a new digital health startup based in Philly that may turn out be a big deal. Its got a name now but is still in stealth, with 24 employees listed on LinkedIn. Named Tendo Systems, its got multiple people from places like Veeva Systems and Jefferson Health.

Dan Goldsmith is CEO. After reaching the position of EVP at Veeva Systems, he became President & CEO at Instructure, the Canvas learning management system company. He resigned in March of last year after a somewhat tumultuos period, as Instructure agreed to a $2 billion buyout by PE giant Thoma Bravo.

His sister, Jennifer Goldsmith, is President of Tendo. She also served Veeva, as Senior VP, and as strategy chief at Instructure. At Veeva, she played a key role in the development of its Vault product line.

At this point, Tendo describes itself in generalities such as the following:

“At Tendo, we believe in a world where software can create frictionless healthcare experiences for patients, caregivers, and providers. Stay tuned to see what we are dreaming up!”

Tendo is a word that has meaning in both in Latin and Japanese.

I checked the usual places to find any venture capital funding, but came up empty.

More as I learn of it.
