LifeFuels, a Reston, Va.-based creator of a portable beverage maker, raised Series A funding round of undisclosed amount.
Keurig Dr Pepper (KDP) made the investment.
The partnership will accelerate commercialization and growth of the company’s product.
Led by CEO and Founder Jonathon Perrelli and CTO and Founder Rob Lawson-Shanks, LifeFuels is a portable beverage maker which has developed technology integrating three components: a sleek technology-packed smart bottle, multi-serve beverage concentrates called FuelPods, and an app that tracks both hydration and nutrition to allow consumers to create personalized drinks that enhance their health and wellness goals.
LifeFuels FuelPods deliver up to 15 concentrated servings of natural beverages in a variety of flavors, tailored to an activity or lifestyle, from Pre-workout to Recovery and Energy to Sleep FuelPods.
Consumers will be able to mix-and-match flavors and nutritional boosts to craft their own custom drinks in the portable beverage maker directly from the app. The integrated app tracks consumption, nutrition, and hydration while providing consumers with actionable insights to take control of their health and wellness.
The LifeFuels bottle will be available to consumers in 2019.
