Our team consists of experts from the fields of medicine, research, business development, sales and leadership as well as IT and tech experts.

That's why we dare to say: We know what we are doing and still speak your language!



Boris Fahrnberger

Co-Founder and CEO

Challenging times require quick and decisive action. This has been our motto ever since we started offering rapidly available and meaningful coronatests to the public. In the meantime, our innovative products have long been in widespread use and COVID Fighters is no longer just an initiative, but part of the solution - in the fight for more safety and quality of life.

Martin Käfer

Co-Founder und CIO

Innovation is driven by a combination of curiosity and expertise. At Artichoke, we give both factors room to flourish.

As an IT-driven company, we stand for a novel, disruptive way of thinking in established fields and live this every day.

PS: The answer is 42.


Raphael Pontus

Co-Founder und CTO

As our company originally comes from the IT sector, we can also apply our IT competencies within the company to the healthcare sector, which brings great added value. It is therefore possible for us to create flexible, secure and cost-effective solutions in both the IT and healthcare sectors. Our goal is to improve the quality of life and to contribute to a safe coexistence even in difficult times.

Raphael T. Zöscher

Co-Founder and Consultant

Our time is characterized by constant change and a dynamism that is difficult to keep up with. The great tasks of the future lie in looking at these challenges in the digital world as well as in the real world from several angles and acting quickly and decisively, therein lies the strength of our artichoke.
