Prevently.com, a Cambridge, MA-based online digital wellness platform and social network, is launching on Friday, October 25th, with close to $1m in seed funding.
Backers are 50 angel investors.
The funding allowed the founders to build their initial prototype.
Co-founded by former Harvard University students and Kairos Society Fellows Laurence Girard (CEO) and Kristen Faulkner (COO), Prevently.com provides users with health content, health products (healthy food, personal care products, and supplements), a telemedicine portal that allows users to book sessions with registered dietitians or pay a subscription fee for their dietitian or primary care doctor, an online personal health record that allows them to sync and upload data from wearable fitness devices such as FitBit, Jawbone UP, Nike Fuel Band, iHealth Labs, Withings, and iBGStar, as well as social networking.
The company, which licenses consumer health content from Harvard Medical School, is currently in incubator program COMETS at Launchpad in Mineola, NY.
