Vida Health, a San Francisco, CA-based digital health platform that pairs individuals with expert health coaches, raised $18M in Series B funding.
The round was led by Canvas Ventures with participation from Nokia Growth Partners (NGP) and returning investor Aspect Ventures. In conjunction with the funding, Canvas Ventures’ Partner Rebecca Lynn will join Vida’s Board of Directors.
The company will use the capital to scale its mobile platform.
Led by Stephanie Tilenius, Co-founder and CEO, Vida Health is a mobile platform for wellness and chronic care that aims to enable people to lose weight, manage stress, exercise more, and reverse chronic conditions like pre-diabetes, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, anxiety and depression.

Since launching in October 2014, Vida has coached tens of thousands of individuals, and has had over 4 million messages and over 7 million logged data points go through the platform.
The app, available in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, reaches consumers directly, as well as through partnerships with Fortune 500 companies, major national payers, and large providers. Partners include employers Steelcase, eBay, and FICO, insurer UnitedHealthcare, and medical centers Duke Medicine, Stanford Medicine, and many others.
