MyHealthTeams, a San Francisco, CA-based developer of creators of social networks specifically for people with chronic healthconditions, has raised $1.75m in seed funding.
The company intends to use the capital to scale the business, expand the team and drive awareness of its social networks and mobile apps.
Led by Eric Peacock, CEO & Co-founder, MyHealthTeams builds engaging social networks for people facing chronic health conditions in the U.S. By combining social elements with hyper-local recommendations, people can connect with, and get support from others who share their diagnosis, and find the providers most suited to help them thrive.
The company’s flagship site, MyAutismTeam, was launched in December 2011 and now has more than 26,000 beta members. It also announced the launch of the MyAutismTeam mobile app.
