Vital Health founder Mehdi Yacoubi announced today on Twitter that the company has obtained a pre-seed round led by JME Ventures and other notable investors to help expand its offerings in the area of metabolic health.
The new funding will allow the company to focus on their singular mission: empower people to optimize their health in a preventive way, said Mehdi in his tweet.
Vital Health’s vision is to build out the “Strava for Health.” The new metabolic health platform is designed to
- Pull data from all existing wearables
- Provide users with clear analytics and recommendations
- Incorporate social features to influence community health behavior
- Explore Gamification as a medium to transform health optimization
The Vital health platform integrates with your CGM (Continuous Glucose Monitoring) device and tracks glucose levels in real-time. The platform also provides users a method to log their meals, activities, and modes.
Vital Health is an exciting player in personalized metabolic health management, and it will be interesting to see how fast they can scale, given the competition in this space.
The company starts with metabolic health and blood glucose level monitoring and will add new features down the road.
- Monitor your metabolic health with these Apple Health compatible platforms
- Apple’s food monitoring feature could be the right step towards detecting interstitial glucose
Companies such as Levels and Veritable have also been attracting a lot of attention post-pandemic as users try to look for better approaches to manage their health proactively.
Last week, Carbon Health acquired Steady health to expand its offerings in this space. Steady Health offers a similar platform that allows for real-time coaching from specialists with services neatly packaged into “Modern diabetes care designed for you.”
It is very much possible that there will be additional consolidation in this space as new upstarts such as Vitals Health gain momentum and expand upon their digital offerings.
We are excited about Vital Health and wish Mehdi and his team at Vital Health the very best and look forward to seeing some exciting health features!
