Nori Health, a Dutch health-tech startup, raised $670k in pre seed funding.
The company intends to use the funds to focus on business development and to bring the solution to market in both the UK and The Netherlands by the end of 2019.
Founded in 2017 by CEO Roeland Pater with the backing of an EU Horizon 2020 grant, Nori Health is advancing an AI-powered digital coach for people living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
The chatbot program provides unlimited conversations over a six-week period. With Nori, the digital coach takes the lead, mapping lifestyle patterns and actively suggesting tailored changes. The chatbot is armed with data, while AI technology is used to keep making Nori smarter as it learns from the whole community of users.
