Half a million US dollars for start-up by ex-N26 managers
Physiotherapy at home is the mission of Berlin-based start-up Exakt Health. It wants to put the money it has now raised into the launch of the app.
More and more apps are relying on certification by the Directory for Digital Health Applications (DiGA) in order to be prescribed by prescription. The start-up Exakt Health also wants to achieve this, now it collected half a million US dollars in a first round of funding.
The two founders, Philip Billaudelle and Lucia Payo, were both once managers at the neobank N26 - and are apparently benefiting from their good contacts. For investors are, in addition to the business angels collective Inventures, N26 founder Maximilian Tayenthal as well as ex-marketing boss Kelly Ford and former USA boss Nicolas Kopp. Also participating as business angels are Cornelia Hoppe of management consultancy Done Berlin and Gloria Bauerlein, who was head of strategy at telemedicine startup Kry.
"Our mission with Exakt Health is to make medically verified and individualized physical therapy available to everyone via app - anytime, anywhere," says Billaudelle, describing Exakt Health's mission. First, the user can perform a self-diagnosis in the app, then a rehabilitation plan is created. The Berlin-based start-up works closely with physiotherapists, initially focusing on sports injuries.
The app is scheduled to launch in May, and the founders want to use the money raised for the launch and to build up the team.
