StartUp Health Introduces Six New Members To Its Incubator


StartUp Health announces six new startups that have been accepted into its three-year incubator program. With the addition of these new members, StartUp Health’s portfolio has grown to include 90 digital health companies in just four years. Within its portfolio, 23 percent of the startups are graduates of early stage accelerators, 40 percent are physician founded, and 35 percent are founded by serial entrepreneurs.

This growth is all the more impressive when taking into consideration that StartUp Health offers no upfront cash or investments, but earns its equity entirely through coaching and networking services. Though the incubator takes a sizeable 2 to 10 percent equity and offers no cash in return, it still maintains acceptance rates on par with most Ivy League universities, substantiating that its model works and even serial entrepreneurs are joining when they can.

Welcome to the newest class to join the StartUp Health incubator program.

AlemHealth – Dubai-based AlemHealth is building a telehealth platform designed to support primary and secondary care organizations that are based in developing countries.

Gritness – Gritness is a networking platform designed to help people coordinate group workouts. Whether it be a pickup game of basketball or a 10-mile bike ride, Gritness sees itself as a search engine for local fitness events.

Healarium – Healarium is building an app that breaks down a doctor’s care plan and feeds the information to patients in the form of a daily task list. The platform monitors compliance, and optimizes the timing of reminders based on individual compliance rates. A back-end population health dashboard helps clinicians maintain a birds-eye view of the patient population.

iDx Ventures – iDx Ventures has developed an at-home diagnostic test that detects Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, or an enlarged prostate. BPH is a common condition that appears in men as young as 30 and causes urinary issues. Seventy-five percent of men over the age of 80 experience BPH.

Mouthwatch – Mouthwatch markets an intraoral camera that is sent home with patients as a supplement to a dental-based population health system that focuses on responsive oral health. The platform reminds patients to take periodic pictures of problematic areas inside their mouth and then uploads the pictures to the Mouthwatch platform where the patient’s dentist can review and take action as necessary.

NuPlanit – NuPlanit is building a patient-facing support app focused on nutrition education and diet support. The platform uses behavioral change techniques, Web-based counseling, and nutritional education to get its users to confront the emotional issues behind unhealthy weight gain.
