Peppy, a London-based women's health app that aims to bridge the gaps in healthcare during fertility, pregnancy, early parenthood and menopause, has announced a £6.6million Series A funding round led by London-based Felix Capital.
The firm, which was founded by Mridula Pore, Evan Harris and Max Landry, provides tailored, expert-led support to individuals before they need to see a doctor, bridging the gap between online searches and hard-to-access clinical care. Its customers include Clifford Chance, multiple NHS Trusts, Santander, Vitality Health and Wickes.
Mridula Pore, Co-Founder of Peppy, said, “The pandemic has shown us that employers can’t just talk about supporting their employees’ health and wellbeing anymore, they have to take action. More and more leading businesses are turning to us to provide the support their people really need – not a one-size-fits-all solution, but support that is trustworthy, personalised and delivered by experts. We’re still at the surface of what is possible for Peppy.”
Max Landry, Co-Founder of Peppy, said, “Having experienced the challenges of parenting first-hand, I am thrilled to see more and more people get access to the support they need. More and more employers are learning that providing remote, inclusive support for the individual is key. This new investment lets us build on and scale our current services and accelerate the launch of new verticals, like men’s health, and ultimately get more support to more people.”
