Ultrahuman is a metabolic fitness platform that helps you improve your health with the help of glucose biomarkers and elite experts.

The two co-founders of Ultrahuman, Mohit and Vatsal, have known each other for more than 16 years and have previously built a hugely successful logistics company which grew to over 500,000 employees! After embarking on personal fitness and wellness journeys, the pair became fascinated with tracking how biomarkers such as HRV, skin temperature, glucose, insulin, and sleep quality relate to cognitive ability and performance.

They went on to build their company, Ultrahuman, that informs its users on how their glucose responds to various foods, exercise, stress, and sleep.

Ultrahuman has since launched the Ultrahuman Ring that gives users real-time access to key biomarkers, and the Ultrahuman M1 Live that gives users interactive insights into their metabolic fitness. πŸ’ͺ

Lincon Health
Lincon is a digital therapy platform for people struggling with Diabetes and Hypertension.

Two aspiring co-founders from Brazil discovered that 74% of all deaths in their home country are caused by NCDs (Non Communicable Chronic Diseases) such as Diabetes and Hypertension. The founders identified a massive opportunity to build a digital therapy platform for diabetes and hypertension to cover the 50M+ Brazilians that were already diagnosed with one or both diseases.

A big challenge for Lincon Health was automating health data collection and we helped them to automate this process and scale their service quicker and more effectively πŸš€

Lincon Health has now officially launched as a digital therapy platform for people suffering from Diabetes and Hypertension, and is currently serving clients worldwide through a wide range of health programmes.πŸ‘¨β€πŸ”¬πŸ‘©β€πŸ”¬

Eight Sleep
Eight Sleep is company that provides sleep tracking and a mattress cover with integrated bed cooling technology.

Co-founder and CEO of Eight Sleep, Matteo Franceschetti, started with the simple question - β€œhow is it possible that we are spending 1/3 of our lives sleeping on a piece of foam, while Elon Musk is taking us to Mars?”

On his journey to better understand how to optimise sleep, Matteo realised that people had very different preferences in terms of temperature while falling asleep. After studying various medical research, Matteo discovered that temperature regulation has the most significant impact on sleep performance outside of medical disorders.

Along with his team at Eight Sleep, Matteo went on to invent The Pod, which is a cover that fits into any mattress to track your sleep and health, and adjust sleep temperature for optimal recovery. πŸ’€

Today, Eight Sleep is the official supplier of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team, and supports elite athletes and people all around the globe to sleep better every single day. 😴

Quin is a diabetes management platform to support people with diabetes.

Cyndi Williams, founder and CEO of Quin, started a diabetes management platform based in the UK designed to support people with diabetes. The idea was inspired by Cyndi's co-founder who had been living with Type 1 diabetes for over 20 years - together they wanted to shift the focus away from surviving diabetes to living well with diabetes. The founders identified that 99% of diabetes is self-care and decided to focus their service entirely on 24/7 self-management needs of people with diabetes.

They are extracting data from diabetes devices, phones, and wearables, to create complex and rich models of personal behavior, physiology, and psychology to provide hyper-personalised education to their customers πŸ‘¨β€πŸ”¬

Quin is now helping diabetes patients all around the world to live well with diabetes. πŸ«€

Defit is an app that enhances fitness gamification via blockchain technologies and rewards its community for living an active lifestyle.

The founder and CEO of Defit, Kevin Serou, has been hooked on triathlon after completing his first Ironman Triathlon back in 2013. Kevin realised that while crossing the finish line was the most rewarding part of completing a triathlon, the preparation for the events was ultimately the most crucial aspect to succeed in a race. However, the preparation requires tedious dedication, hard work, discipline, and consistency.

Kevin discovered that a lot of people could benefit from extra motivation to put down the best efforts in their preperations. This is how the idea behind Defit was born - an app that enhances fitness gamification via blockchain technologies and rewards its community for living an active lifestyle. πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ β†’ πŸ“±

Defit is recording users' fitness data through wearables and connect to their app. Defit recently extended its collaboration with Terra to develop machine learning algorithms that prevent users from cheating. The Defit community currently has over 50K followers on twitter and over 7K members on discord - this is only the beginning of Web3 innovations πŸ’₯

Kalibra is a platform that turns health data into actionable recommendations.

Founder and CEO of Kalibra, Ivan Vatchkov, started his career in a highly stressful and demanding environment in the hedge fund industry. Ivan quickly realised that he was making a health trade-off and feared that he would follow in the footsteps of his family history with numerous health challenges such as type two diabetes.

What started as a personal passion to discover health and wellbeing solutions for longevity, turned into Kalibra - a platform that turns health data into action. Kalibra uses a digital personal assistant, similar to Amazon Alexa, that asks users questions about their health, and based on the user input, tailors specific health recommendations and actions to improve users' health.

Today, the app is available to download in both the App Store and Google Play πŸš€

SocialBoat is an app that allows users to play fitness games, while transforming their bodies at the same time.

Swapnil Wats, co-founder of SocialBoat, discovered a fundamental retention problem in the fitness industry - β€œ 150 million people globally pay $400 annually for fitness, but they drop off within a month, two weeks, or even a week. This is 80% of the total 180 million people that go to the gym.” Swapnil made the comparison to video games β€œthey're so popular today and we love playing video games because they're instant gratification, but in fitness the gratification cycle is too weak.”

SocialBoat was developed as a fitness game with the ultimate goal being for its users to play interactive fitness games, while transforming their bodies at the same time. The company uses wearable data to give their users valuable insights and award them points for activities. ⏱ β†’ πŸ“±
