Venturing: CSS invests in Humanoo
Through SwissHealth Ventures, we invest in digital health start-ups whose new digital technologies move healthcare forward. Humanoo is the fourth investment in total, following Pregnolia, OnlineDoctor and Flow Neuroscience.
Humanoo has developed a digital health management platform that also serves as the basis for our active365 rewards app. We've teamed up with other investors to take part in the current financing round, thus strengthening the existing cooperation.
Health app with reward system
Humanoo was founded in 2016 and now has more than 300 business clients in addition to CSS. Its solution offers numerous on-demand programmes for fitness, physio, yoga, mindfulness, sleep and nutrition. The software can translate health-related activities into monetary and non-monetary rewards. This includes active365 where users can earn activePoints by completing sessions, for example.
Capital for growth and development
The successfully completed financing round has secured Humanoo around USD 10 million in additional capital. Alongside CSS as lead investor, Helsana, Sanitas and other venture capital investors joined the financing round. The capital raised will be used to scale up the company's technology, product and business development teams. Strengthening these relevant resources will enable it to continue developing its core product.
Contributing to a better client experience
Patrick Deucher, Head of Clients & Market, will take a seat on the Humanoo advisory board where he will represent the interests of CSS. He sees strengthening the existing partnership as an important step: "By investing in Humanoo, we're helping it to expand and optimise its offering. Ultimately, it's our clients that benefit – along with everyone else who regularly uses active365."
