Cara, a Berlin, Germany-based precision medicine solution for digestive health, closed a $2m seed financing.
The round was led by Atlantic Labs with participation from a group of angels.
The company intends to use the funds to launch its solution.
Co-founded by André Sommer, MD, Orest Tarasiuk, MSc, Jesaja Brinkmann, and Dankrad Feist, PhD, Cara provides a mobile app that allows users to track custom dishes or pick food items from a large database. Among other categories, people can record e.g. pain, bloating, emotions or stress. Cara correlates symptoms and helps the user understand patterns. People can also receive support by contacting the company’s team directly within the app.
In June 2017, Cara was featured on the App Store in Canada, UK, Ireland, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Norway in ‘Hot this week’ and ‘New apps we love’.
Currently, Cara is featured on the App Store homepage in the US, Canada and the Netherlands.
