Support stock investments Lawsuit Alleges Theranos ‘Purposely And Repeatedly Lied’
Up to this point, there has been one major motivation to trust that Theranos, the questionable diagnostics startup, could get by in spite of far reaching questions about whether its innovation, which the organization once guaranteed would upset the blood testing business, even works: its speculators, in the wake of putting $700 million into the startup, appeared to be unequivocally behind Theranos and its originator, Elizabeth Holmes.
No more. Accomplice Fund Management, a San Francisco-based support stock investments with $4 billion under administration, documented a claim affirming that it put resources into Theranos in view of deceiving proclamations made by Holmes and Theranos.
