OurPath, a London, UK-based digital health startup, raised $3m in funding.
The round was led by Connect Ventures and SpeedInvest, with participation from Taavet Hinrinkus, Michael Pennington, and Ian Hogarth. In conjunction with the funding, Connect Ventures managing partner, Sitar Teli, joined OurPath’s board.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its business reach in the UK.
Co-founded by Chris Edson and Mike Gibbs, OurPath combines technology, a dedicated dietitian and scientific research to provide a 3-month, lifestyle change program for weight loss and reduction of risk for diseases like Type 2 diabetes. The program is already being rolled out to thousands of NHS patients at risk of type 2 diabetes in Humber, Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
The company is an NHS service provider, as part of the NHS “Healthier You” national diabetes prevention program.
