Big Health, a London-based medtech startup, has secured 3.3 million in a Series A funding round led by Forward Partners and Index Ventures. The young company plans to use the fresh capital to support its upcoming US expansion.
The first product of Big Health, which is already in the market, is called Sleepio. It’s a digital sleep improvement programme, clinically proven to help overcome even long term poor sleep without pills. Sleepio synchronises with a number of hardware and wearable devices – including the popular Jawbone UP. This helps the sleep improvement programme to get the right data about sleep patterns automatically without the need for users to manually record their stats.
